Finance (No. 4) Bill (16 Apr 2012)

Danny Alexander: ...allowed avoidance to grow and spread, we are putting a stop to it. In total, this Finance Bill contains 15 measures to close loopholes and tackle avoidance. For example, clause 212 introduces a new stamp duty rate of 15% to deter those seeking to put their high-value property into a corporate structure to avoid tax—so-called enveloping. In a future Finance Bill, we will put in place an...

Oral Answers to Questions — Receipt Stamps. (11 Nov 1926)

Mr Ronald McNeill: 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...

Business of the House: Finance Bill (7 Apr 2010)

Stephen Timms: ...re-elected, we will change that, and then the numbers that I have just given will not apply. To secure recovery, the Bill builds on the success of the measures that we have introduced so far. Our stamp duty holiday on all transactions under £175,000 gave support for the housing market when it needed it most, helping 260,000 home buyers. However, many first-time buyers still struggle, so...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill — [1st Allotted Day]: Clause 4 — Duty Stamps for Spirits Etc (27 Apr 2004)

John Healey: The hon. Gentleman makes an important point. It is possible that the introduction of duty stamps, and their printing, distribution and retention, could cause additional security risks. We have recognised that implementing the system could be a cost to the industry, and we have undertaken to consider with it the operation of the duty stamp system that we plan to introduce. We shall also look...

Resolution reported, That the stamp duty chargeable on local authorities in respect of the audit of their accounts by district auditors shall, instead of being charged according to the existing scale be charged according to a scale which shall be fixed by the Treasury after consultation with the Minister of Health, and shall be such as to secure that the duties levied shall be sufficient to...

Northern Ireland (Emergency Provisions) (22 Jul 1980)

Mr Brynmor John: The analogy of the rubber stamp may be a false one. It may be my hon. Friend's interpretation that the House acts as a rubber stamp when it passes legislation, but my interpretation is that it passes legislation without adequate scrutiny and without fulfilling the duty of informing itself about the vital matter of the parameters of the debate in order to conduct the debate sensibly and...

Orders of the Day: Clause 70 — Anti-avoidance (26 Jun 2007)

Julia Goldsworthy: ...relates to anti-avoidance measures in this year's Finance Bill. Like the amendments discussed earlier this afternoon, it is a probing amendment. It focuses on proposed new section 75C, which is a stamp duty land tax anti-avoidance provision that refers to Treasury provisions to make exceptions to its application. My question is whether there are further areas in which avoidance may be...

...Excess Profits Levy in 1954–55 at £60 million—a fall of £6 million on the previous year; and the yield of Surtax at £132 million, or approximately the same as the 1953–54 out-turn. Death Duties at £165 million, Stamp Duties at £55 million and Miscellaneous Inland Revenue duties at £1 million are also expected to bring in about the same amount as last year.

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (27 Nov 2017)

Tim Loughton: ...of the home building fund to help more house building projects on small sites. I also welcome the commitment to more homes. We need to build more homes, as well as more new towns, so I welcome the stamp duty exemption for first-time young buyers. There are some unintended omissions. People will not qualify if buying a property jointly with somebody who has previously owned one or even...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 11. — (Abolition of Excise Duties on Licences for Appraisers, Auctioneers, House Agents and Plate Dealers.) (22 Jun 1949)

Mr William Hall: I think the Committee will recollect that the Chancellor of the Exchequer indicated during his Budget statement that he proposed to sweep away a lot of old stamp duties of one kind or another. Among those which he proposed to abolish were those dealing with excise licences and duties on appraisers, auctioneers, house agents and plate dealers. This Clause, in association with the Eleventh...

The sum of £428 8s. represents the stamp duties payable in 14 such cases, the duties payable in each case being £30 12s.

Oral Answers to Questions — War Taxes. (19 Dec 1933)

Mr. CHAMBERLAIN: As regards the first part of the question, I would refer my hon. Friend, so far as Customs and Excise Duties are concerned, to Table 144 of the report of the Commissioners of Customs and Excise for the year ended 31st March, 1933. So far as the Inland Revenue is concerned, the special taxes imposed for War purposes have been repealed, but it will, of course, be borne in mind...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 39. — (Remission of stamp duty in respect of capital of certain companies.) (25 Jun 1930)

Mr Samuel Hammersley: We seem to have placed ourselves in a very embarrassing position, because we have made such rapid progress to-day. I think there is something to be said for exempting from Stamp Duty the Imperial and International Communications, Limited. Subsection (2) refers to the Bankers Industrial Development Company, Limited, which is a new concern, the shareholders of which are almost entirely...

Written Answers — Treasury: Young People (Business Start-ups) (3 Dec 2002)

John Healey: ...2,000 Enterprise Areas in the most deprived areas in the UK, where policies to support businesses are now being concentrated. Businesses in these areas already benefit from an exemption from stamp duty on property transfers between 60,000 and 150,000. We have announced that we will remove stamp duty on all commercial transactions in those areas, introduce a more flexible planning regime...

London and the South-East (12 Mar 2002)

Eleanor Laing: ...and the south-east is another problem. I agree with much that the hon. Member for Harlow (Mr. Rammell) said about the need to build more social housing, council housing and starter homes. However, stamp duty and house prices also need to be addressed. They are not popular issues. Indeed, when I raised them in my maiden speech nearly five years ago, Labour Members laughed at me. I said...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Oral Update to the Mayor's Report: Oral Update to the Mayor's Report (23 May 2019)

Sadiq Khan: ...need requires national Government to play its role by devolving far more funding and powers to London. We currently receive only a fraction of the funding needed, despite sending record amounts of stamp duty revenues to the Exchequer every year. The Government makes over £3 billion from London’s property market every year in stamp duty but only sends around £0.7 billion back in...

Orders of the Day — Revenue for 1955–56 (19 Apr 1955)

Inland Revenue duties in 1955–56 are expected to provide £2,610 million, an increase of £69 million on the out-turn for 1954–55. From Income Tax I expect to receive £2,009 million, or £116 million more than last year. This increase will come partly from the higher profits of the past year, and partly from the effect over a full year of recent increases in wages and salaries. The yield...
