Rail Services (Bedfordshire): Stamp Duty Reform (23 Jan 2018)

Robert Jenrick: ...very interested in the property market and some of the questions that he has raised today. I will try to respond to as many of those as possible, but let me first raise some of the background to stamp duty and the Government’s recent reforms, because it is fair to say that there has been a great deal of activity in the area over the last few years. Stamp duty as we know it was introduced...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 55 - Amount of tax chargeable: general (5 Jun 2003)

George Osborne: ...the housing market. The whole country saw how that happened with some flats in Bristol last year. Does my hon. Friend agree that many of the distortions have arisen because of the big increase in stamp duty since the Government came to power? Much of the avoidance of stamp duty that the Government have tried to cut out would not have happened if they had not increased stamp duty from 1 per...

New Clause 3: Stamp Duty (Temporary Provisions) (Extension) (7 Jul 1992)

Mr Anthony Nelson: ...of that as the hon. Gentleman. While my hon. Friend the Member for Romford (Sir M. Neubert) understood the Government's position, he reiterated his long-held conviction that we should get rid of stamp duty altogether. He espoused that conviction in compelling fashion. As I said, stamp duty is an unloved tax and abolishing it altogether is an appealing line. However, the cost of doing so...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: New Clause 11 — Stamp duty reserve tax (2 Jul 2013)

Chris Leslie: ...and very few people spotted it. I should look back and see whether the Chancellor even referenced it in his Budget speech. This little-known provision is the abolition of something called the stamp duty reserve tax. It is not quite the same as the stamp duty on share transactions that many hon. Members are familiar with. That is, for want of a better term, a financial transaction tax of 50...

Procedure: Stamp Duty Reserve Tax (Clearance Services) (11 Jun 1986)

Mr Gerry Bermingham: As a member of the Finance Bill Committee and one who the Minister would agree has created some trouble over the question of stamp duty, it appears to me that these motions show that the Government, in their proposals of 19 March, had not thought through the problems about stamp duty. Indeed, a Minister admitted in the Committee that the one thing that he had done wrong as a member of the...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: Clause 25. — (Conveyances and Transfers on Sale: Reduction of Duty, and Amendment of Provisions for Exemption.) (12 Jun 1967)

Mr John Smith: ...his house is in greater need of relief than the man who does not need a mortgage, and a point I have never seen made, is that a mortgage is most often secured by a life policy which itself attracts stamp duty, so that the man burdened with a mortgage pays three sets of duty while the laughably termed "rich" man, who does not need a mortgage, pays only one set. The stamp duty on small...

Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Bill: Report (2nd Day) (9 Mar 2015)

Lord Hodgson of Astley Abbotts: I am not quite clear whether my noble friend said that there was or was not a problem with stamp duty. My understanding is that there are repeat stamp duty obligations; in other words, you write off the stamp duty of the lease that is running and have to start again every time you have a new agreement, and for five years that is another £5,000, plus whatever you have written off before, plus...

Written Ministerial Statements — Treasury: Stamp Duty Land Tax (Zero-Carbon Homes Relief) (18 Oct 2007)

Kitty Ussher: The Finance Act 2007 provides the Treasury with powers to make regulations granting relief from stamp duty land tax on the first sale of a new zero-carbon house. I am pleased to announce that I am today laying before the House of Commons draft regulations under the affirmative procedure entitled The Stamp Duty Land Tax (Zero-Carbon Homes Relief) Regulations 2007. These draft regulations...

Oral Answers to Questions — British Army.: Members of Parliament (Salaries, etc.). (8 Jun 1920)

Mr. CHAMBERLAIN: The question whether it would be possible to arrange that orders for payment to Members of this House should bear an embossed stamp would be one for the consideration of the Clerk of the Fees whose duty it would be to ensure that the appropriate deduction on account of Stamp Duty should be made from the amount of salary paid to Members. The exemption of these orders from...

Public Bill Committee: Land Registration Bill [Lords]: Clause 8 - Liability for making good void transfers etc (11 Dec 2001)

Michael Wills: I hope that I shall be able rapidly to reassure the hon. Gentleman on this point. The Stamp Duties Management Act 1891 already ensures that only one payment of stamp duty is made in such situations. Section 9 of the 1891 Act states that subject to the production of evidence as to the facts, and to compliance with stamp duty regulations, allowance is to be made by the commissioners for stamps...

New Clause. — (Stamp Duties on Life Insurance Policies.) (24 Jun 1965)

Mr Peter Walker: The point that the Chief Secretary has missed is that whereas we would not argue against the imposition of Stamp Duty based upon the sum insured, in what is normally known to be life assurance, we do argue on the subject of temporary life assurance because it is much nearer to being an accident policy in which a Stamp Duty is imposed which is not linked with the sum assured. There is a fiat...

Written Answers — Treasury: Islamic Mortgages (19 Nov 2002)

Ruth Kelly: ...examine any perceived restrictions on product development that are brought to our attention. We are now examining this issue in the context of the reforms under way as part of the modernisation of stamp duty as announced in the Budget on 17 April by Gordon Brown. The review of stamp duty is an opportunity to iron out anomalies that exist under the current legislation. Our intention is to...

Public Bill Committee: Finance (No. 2) Bill: Clause 163 (20 Jun 2006)

Julia Goldsworthy: I have a very brief question for the Economic Secretary about the changes to stamp duty land tax. I would be interested to hear the rationale behind the increase and to hear what impact he thinks that it will have on home buyers, particularly first-time buyers as mentioned by the hon. Member for  Hove (Ms Barlow). Surely it is the slab-like structure of stamp duty land tax that poses so many...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: New Clause. — (Composition for Stamp Duty on Cheques, &C.) (10 Jul 1956)

Mr Harold Macmillan: ...in a sense but not without importance. It is to enable the Commissioners of Inland Revenue to enter into agreements with the banks with the object of improving the present method of collecting Stamp Duty on cheques and dividend warrants. Under the present law, the 2d. Stamp Duty on cheques, dividend warrants, and so forth, has to be denoted by an impressed, or sometimes an adhesive,...

Ways and Means: Business Taxation (20 Mar 1990)

...later, when I have fuller information about the progress of TAURUS. However, although there is some flexibility about the timing, there is no doubt whatsoever about the decision to abolish stamp duty on shares. I have made the announcement now for two reasons: to remove uncertainty, and to make it clear that there is no need to plan for stamp duty within TAURUS. I should add, for the...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Passport Fees (30 Apr 1959)

Miss Irene Ward: Is my hon. and learned Friend aware that I had to put down this rather complicated Question in order to ask him for an assurance that the 2d. Stamp Duty on cheques will not be increased on the ground that that Stamp Duty was fixed in 1918, in view of the fact that passport fees were increased because they were said to be unrealistic since they had been fixed in 1931? In view of the danger...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 43. — (Increase of existing duties and provisions consequential thereon.) (11 Jun 1947)

Mr William Hall: Perhaps I can provide the answer straight away. As the right hon. Member correctly said, the operative date is 1st August this year, when the higher Stamp Duty will be payable on documents brought in for stamping. Documents executed before then, but brought in after 1st August, will be stamped at the old rate; that is, the guiding principle will be the date on the document. So far as...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 70 (5 Jun 2007)

Rob Marris: I may have misunderstood, but would not much of the discussion be academic, as stamp duty land tax would never be payable anyway? If we talk about leasehold enfranchisement for many houses in the west midlands, for example, we may note that they were sold originally on a 99-year lease, and the usual multiple was 11 times the annual ground rent, which as I understand it would not get anywhere...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Infrastructure Bill [Lords] (Ways and Means) (8 Dec 2014)

...That, for the purposes of any Act resulting from the Infrastructure Bill [Lords], it is expedient to authorise– (a) the making of provision about income tax, corporation tax, capital gains tax, stamp duty, stamp duty land tax and stamp duty reserve tax, (b) the charging of fees by the Chief Land Registrar for services relating to local land charges, (c) the charging of fees in connection...
