The following Tax guidance note provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
STOP PRESS relating to market value consideration for transfers of listed securities to connected companies: Finance Act 2019 introduced a targeted market value rule for stamp duty and SDRT for instruments transferring or agreements to transfer listed securities (ie stock or marketable securities or chargeable securities that are regularly traded on a regulated market, multilateral trading facility or recognised foreign exchange) to connected companies. For such transfers, the consideration chargeable to stamp duty or SDRT will be the higher of the consideration (if any) given for the transfer or the market value of the listed securities. This provision took effect retrospectively from 29 October 2018.
FORTHCOMING CHANGE on aligning the stamp duty and SDRT consideration rules: A consultation published on 7 November 2018 considers: (i) extending the market value rule to unlisted securities and to connected party transfers other than to companies, (ii) adopting the SDRT definition of ‘money or money’s worth’ for consideration for stamp duty purposes, and (iii) aligning the stamp duty and SDRT treatment of contingent, uncertain and unascertainable consideration, potentially adopting the SDLT approach to such consideration.
