Scope of Stamp Duty on shares: Stamp Duty - basics of a charge: Transfers of listed securities and connected persons: Listed securities
Finance Bill 2018-19 introduces legislation to provide for a new Stamp Duty and Stamp Duty Reserve Tax (SDRT) market value rule where listed securities are transferred to a company or its nominee (whether or not for consideration), and the person transferring the securities is connected with the company or is the nominee of a person connected with the company.
“Listed securities” are stock or marketable securities which are regularly traded on a regulated market, a multilateral trading facility or a recognised foreign exchange.
Regulated market, multilateral trading facility and recognised foreign exchange have the same meaning as in section 80B Finance Act 1986.
