HMRC has introduced new electronic Stamp Duty processes to replace their previous physical stamping system.
If the purchase price of the shares is above the £1,000 duty payable threshold, you’ll need to send your SH03 form to HMRC before you send it to Companies House. They will issue your company with a letter confirming that the appropriate duty has been paid.
When you send the form to Companies House, you’ll need to send the HMRC letter with it.
The letter will not appear on the public register.
