Share Dealing involves buying stock/shares in a given company for investment purposes. Profits can be made if you sell the shares for a higher price than the purchasing price. You can also earn income through dividends payments made by company when it is profitable.
In the UK shares can be dealt on the London Stock Exchange (LSE) or on the Alternative Investment Market (AIM) where thousands of companies are listed. The companies range from small businesses to large multinational companies covering a range of sectors such technology, health, financial and industrial goods, services and utilities.
Brokers charge a commission per trade or transaction and this varies from broker to broker.
There is also tax involved in share dealing so it is important to check with your investment advisor which tax you may be liable to paying on future gains.
There is the capital gains tax which is paid when you make profit from selling shares, income tax which is depends on your tax bracket and there is stamp duty which is 0.5% of the purchase price when buying UK shares. It is important to look out for changes or updates in tax regulations in your country and residence.
