Generally, he who makes the payments, takes the tax benefit. You didn’t say who is selling using a CFD. Was it the seller to the investor, or the investor to the end buyer? Both?
If the investor is buying on CFD, but selling using L/O (which I recommend), then the investor takes the tax benefit, because the end-buyer is really only leasing and is not on title.
