With the end of financial year coming up I'm beginning to look for an accountant to do my returns. I'm a student with gains from various sources (mainly CFD's, futures) apart from work this year, but also with losses (trading futures) vastly exceeding those gains. My fear is having to pay tax on gains which no longer exist. Should I be going to some basic local accountant?, as an expensive accountant specializing in trading would be totally unjustified in my case.
Where do the rest of you go? any recommendations on where to look?
