    Hi experts,

    Heading into full time retirement very soon and wondering if active shares & CFD trading & investing
    can be set up and structured as a legit business?

    Should the trading/investing entity be best as pty ltd or a discretionary trust for tax efficiency?
    Can the trading/investing income (or profit depends on how it's treated I guess) be considered by
    banks/lenders as legit income for investment loans for properties?

    Is it something a good accountant can advise and set up?

    Thanks,
    FXD
