I have been profitable to a decent degree for the period of the PC & have never paid the PC . my latest % was around 42%

I am a traditional backer & avoid favourites. I've never traded or laid horses.

I have set up a separate account to trial a modicum of trading.

Will this possibly mean i may start to pay the PC as i believe its mainly catching arbers & traders in the net?

I don't want to start doing it if it means running the risk of paying the PC?

Thanks in advance for any advice

It's not this.

Could you elaborate?

Not much to elaborate on, the premium charge catches people from all styles of gambling, not traders and particuarly not arbers... arbers will basically never pay it.

*not just traders, traders do get caught.

Arbers won't get caught, almost by definition (you need to be a winner on betfair)

So in conclusion - by starting trading it shouldn't bring me into the PC?

You'll have to crunch the numbers yourself, it could well bring you into the pc. 42% might mean one big win brings you in normally even without trading.

You should be able to work out how much you can win before you start paying and work from there.

Anyone who is reasonable successful over a prolonged period will probably pay the premium charge eventually now that the £1,000 allowance does not decay.

This depends on what type of trading you will do and if you're any good at it. If the premium charge was mainly for traders it would have been easier to simply charge per trade.
