Vat: Counterfeit Currency (30 Oct 2008)

Yvette Cooper: As I think is clear to everyone, when a global credit crunch hits, it hits not only tax receipts from the financial sector but tax receipts from such things as stamp duty. We have made it clear that it is right to maintain public spending and increase borrowing to support the economy at a time like this, but we are also cutting taxes this year, for example through increased tax allowances and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Government Departments.: Company Amalgamations (Stamp Duties). (22 Mar 1927)

Sir Harry Brittain: ...registered with the expressed object of effecting amalgamation between companies conducting similar businesses, and that such registrations involved in effect the payment twice over of the capital duty of £1 per £100 upon the issued capital of the constituent companies apart from the conveyance duty: and, in view of the fact that amalgamations beneficial to industry are often prevented...

Income Tax (Charge) (3 Mar 2021)

Felicity Buchan: ...chamber of commerce last night, and someone suggested that on the call, so perhaps the Chancellor was listening in. On that note, I want to talk briefly about three constituency matters. One is stamp duty. I welcome the extension of the nil rate, but I feel we need a fundamental reform of stamp duty. Stamp duty is a tax on social mobility, and in my constituency, where property prices are...

Wales Bill — Second Reading (22 Jul 2014)

Lord Howarth of Newport: ...that business rates should be determined by local authorities in a system negotiated with the Assembly and the Welsh Government, but that is not going to be a bonanza for Welsh local government. Stamp duty land tax is highly erratic in its yield. Is it intended that the block grant should rise and fall with the fluctuations in the yield of stamp duty land tax? If it is not, we are going to...

Orders of the Day — Customs and Excise.: Continuation of Duty on Tea. (16 Apr 1923)

Sir Albert Bennett: ...benefit trade. I hope the right hon. Gentleman will still be able to give us his opinion on this matter. There is one other point I ask the Government to consider the advisability of reducing the Stamp Duty on bearer securities, which especially affects Foreign Loans. When this tax was increased in 1920 from 1 per cent. to 2 per cent., the situation was quite different from what it is now....

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 67 - Transfer in consequence of reorganisation of parliamentary constituencies (10 Jun 2003)

Mr Paul Boateng: ...changes. An amendment would include references to the devolved Administrations so that when the boundaries change and transfers take place they are similarly exempt. The clause reflects the current stamp duty provisions by granting relief from stamp duty land tax on the transfer of property between constituency associations when the transfers take place following boundary changes. In...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Schedule 9 - Stamp duty land tax: right to buy, shared ownership leases etc (10 Jun 2003)

Mr Paul Boateng: ...to the hon. Gentleman for pointing out that that organisation is now defunct and that we need to amend the reference for Report. That will certainly be done. Clause 71 provides an exemption from stamp duty land tax for a range of transactions where the purchaser is a registered social landlord. Amendments Nos. 280 and 281 would add the National Assembly for Wales to the list of prescribed...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Schedule 61 (25 Jun 2009)

Ian Pearson: I said that we would keep the matter under view, as is normal Government procedure. The clause introduces the legislation in schedule 61 on stamp duty land tax, capital gains tax and capital allowances relating to alternative finance investment bonds. It deals with anomalies in the tax treatment arising between AFIBs backed by land and conventional bonds backed by land. More specifically,...

Orders of the Day — European Community (Excise Duties) (3 Dec 1980)

Mr Denzil Davies: I am not sure whether the Treaty has much to do with taxation, and domestic taxation at that. By seeking to harmonise excise duties, the Commission is gradually seeking to take away from the national Governments of the EEC all power over taxation. It is an insidious process. If the hon. Gentleman thinks that it is not, he is very naive. The Commission seeks to look at excise duties, stamp...

Oral Answers to Questions — Receipt Stamps. (11 Mar 1924)

Mr Philip Snowden: The attention of the Commissioners of Inland Revenue is constantly being called to cases where receipts which ought to have been stamped have been given without a stamp, and suitable action is taken by them in each case. The document commonly given in the larger shops when goods are sold and paid for over the counter is a form of voucher which does not constitute a receipt for the purposes of...

The Minister may with the approval of the Treasury make...

Amendment of the Law (26 Mar 2012)

Danny Alexander: ...in society. We have capped reliefs on income tax which the wealthy exploit. We have capped benefits; now we are capping reliefs. It is, if you like, a tycoon tax. We have introduced a new stamp duty land tax at the rate of 7% on properties worth more than £2 million. We are increasing the stamp duty charge to 15% for residential properties over £2 million and we are consulting on a new...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 91 - Charge to tax (13 Jun 2013)

Sheila Gilmore: ...of hand gestures, that five times the amount of money was going to come into the Treasury, compared with what the 50p tax rate would have achieved. One of the reasons for that was the change to stamp duty land tax to create a higher rate for properties valued over £2 million at the time of sale, rather than a generalised tax on properties of that value. If we do that now or in the future...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 2. — (Hydrocarbon Oils, Petrol. Substitutes and Power Methy Lated Spirits.) (30 Nov 1964)

Mr Ian MacArthur: Certainly, but hon. Gentlemen opposite have been saying that the one great purpose of the increase in petrol duty was to pay for the increase in old-age pensions. What I am saying is that they cannot have it three ways. They cannot say that petrol duty is paying for the increase, that the 6d. on the standard rate of Income Tax is paying for it, and that the increase in the cost of the stamp...
