Exemptions and reliefs: reliefs: Intermediary Relief - shares regularly traded only on an MTF
Where shares are acquired that are regularly traded only on a multilateral trading facility (or MTF), recognised foreign exchange or recognised foreign options exchange (i.e. the shares are not regularly traded on a regulated market), the transaction will be eligible for relief only if the transaction is effected on and reported to such an MTF/exchange.
There is no such requirement to report a transaction to a regulated market provided the securities are regularly traded on a regulated market.
