Orders of the Day — Estimated Revenue, 1940–I. (23 Apr 1940)

...the current year would be £408,000,000. As regards Surtax, the full benefit of the increased rates imposed last year should now be felt, and the estimated yield is £75,000,000. The yield of Death Duties should also now be fully affected by the increases in the rates of duty imposed last year, and I estimate a total of £85,000,000. The yield of Stamp Duties I place at £19,000,000.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Index-Linked Loan Capital (14 Jul 1981)

Mr Nigel Lawson: ...move, That the clause be read a Second time. This new clause is straightforward. The Labour Government in 1976, in the Finance Act of that year, made fixed interest loan stock by companies free of stamp duty. For understandable reasons, that exemption from stamp duty did not extend to index-linked industrial loan stock. In view of the fact that the present Government have introduced...

Chloe Smith: The solar photovoltaic (PV) sector pays tax to HM Revenue and Customs under corporation tax, pay-as-you-earn and national insurance contributions, stamp duty land tax, stamp taxes on shares and value added tax.

Oral Answers to Questions — Medicine Stamp Duties. (13 Jun 1939)

Mr John Simon: I do not consider that the repeal of the Medicine Stamp Duties need have the effect which my hon. Friend fears. It will be open to pharmacists who are at present the only retailers of their own preparations un stamped to continue this practice if they desire to restrict the channels of sale in this way; but repeal of the duties will remove the anomaly by which at present the same preparation...

Public Bill Committee: Child Trust Funds Bill: Clause 1 - Child trust funds (6 Jan 2004)

George Osborne: ...many of them will be in equity, but I have anticipated that line of attack. During the consideration of the Finance Bill in Committee and on the Floor of the House, I kept making the point that the stamp duty land tax—the Government's new land tax—neither involved a stamp nor was a duty. When I made that point to the Minister, she said that the Government were sticking to that name...

Orders of the Day — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (4 Apr 1963)

Mr William Clark: ...have a personal savings rate of about 12 per cent. Last year, it was only 10½ per cent. There is a great margin for increased personal savings, which help investment. I welcome the reduction in Stamp Duty on shares and transfers of property. I do not agree with the hon. Member for Grimsby that all that this does is to put money into the pockets of the property-owning classes. During the...

Orders of the Day — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (21 Mar 1990)

Mr Norman Lamont: ...rates have brought down inflation in the past, and they will do so again. Another measure that is designed to encourage savings and which I think will be warmly welcomed is the abolition of stamp duty. As my right hon. Friend the Chancellor explained, the stock exchange will move to a new paperless system of transactions, and even the most ingenious would find it difficult to levy stamp...

Written Answers — Treasury: Enterprise Areas (7 Jan 2003)

John Healey: ...from the perspective of existing and potential new businesses, so that take-up by businesses in disadvantaged areas is easier, and effectiveness in improving outcomes is increased. In addition to stamp duty exemption on property transfers up to #150,000, and policies designed to tackle market failures and provide better business support, the Government is looking at ways to make the...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (20 Apr 2004)

Alan Reid: ...concerns more than jobs in distilleries, because the whisky industry provides many jobs in bottling plants, which are often located in urban areas where it is difficult to find other jobs. The tax stamp will also affect the constituency of the hon. Member for South Norfolk, because much of the barley used in the distilling process is sourced from East Anglia. It is clear that there is a...

Scottish Parliament: Budget (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (26 Jan 2000)

Adam Ingram: ...with this bill goes far deeper than how much we get as a handout from London. This Parliament is not in control of its income. Regardless of how much our citizens pay through value added tax, fuel duty, stamp duty, insurance tax, car tax, corporation tax or even our own North sea oil revenues, not one additional penny will come to Scotland. All of it flows into Gordon Brown's Treasury,...

Written Answers — National Finance: Stamp Duty (29 Oct 1981)

Mr. Ridley [pursuant to his reply 28 October 1981]: All such transactions were liable to stamp duty until 1958. After that date, no information is available on the percentage of all purchases of residential property by individuals that were liable. However, the following estimates for England and Wales are available. They relate to the number of properties sold taking (a) all residential...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: Clause 31. — (Annuity Contracts.) (12 Jun 1956)

Mr Henry Brooke: ...47 are somewhat technical. As the Committee knows, Clause 31 authorises the Commissioners of Inland Revenue to make agreements with insurance companies under which they pay over the total amount of Stamp Duty on annuity contracts periodically in a lump sum instead of having to send the documents to the Revenue for additional stamps to be impressed on them. The point which has come to...

Road Safety: Part 3 — Transfers under scheme under section171(1) or (4) or187(1) (18 May 2011)

...relating to anything done for the purposes of, in relation to, or in consequence of, the transfer. (5) In this paragraph— “relevant tax” means corporation tax, income tax, capital gains tax, stamp duty, stamp duty land tax or stamp duty reserve tax, and “tax provision” means a provision of an enactment about a relevant tax. (6) In sub-paragraph (5) “enactment” includes an...

Orders of the Day — LAW OF PROPERTY BILL [Lords], (15 May 1922)

Mr Edmund Royds: ..., it does not exceed 1 per cent, of the purchase money. The general public do not know that, because, in addition to that one per cent., they have also to pay one per cent, of the purchase money in Stamp Duty to the Government. If you want to cheapen the cost of transferring land, the best way is to reduce the Stamp Duty. That will cheapen it straight away without involving these new and...

Opposition Day — [17th Allotted Day]: Tax Avoidance (11 Feb 2015)

Shabana Mahmood: I will not, because I am going to make some more progress. Thirdly, we have said that we will prevent hedge funds that are avoiding stamp duty on shares from being able to do so. Hedge funds currently avoid stamp duty by not buying the shares directly; instead, they get intermediaries to buy them on their behalf. Those intermediaries are investment banks, which benefit from tax relief on...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Post Office. (6 Jun 1934)

Rear-Admiral Sir Murray Sueter: ...sent by air, and the sooner the Postmaster-General faces up to that the better. I come to the question which the hon. Lady the Member for West Willesden (Mrs. Tate) mentioned, namely, an air mail stamp. I went to the General Post Office on the invitation of the hon. Member for Bromley (Sir E. Campbell), the Parliamentary Private Secretary to the Postmaster-General, who showed me over the...

Orders of the Day — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (18 Jun 1979)

Mr Vivian Bendall: .... Because of that, I understand the problems that face young people. My speech would have been similar to the one that I am now making had my party still been in Opposition. Since the 1974 Budget, stamp duty has commenced at £15,000. This creates a problem for young people who are purchasing a property. They have to pay fairly high interest rates on mortgages. They are faced with other...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (17 Apr 2000)

Kenneth Clarke: ...are using them as revenue raisers. They know that they can dress up the revenue raisers with an environmental cloak. As a result, extraordinary damage is being done to industry. Even the stamp duty changes, which were obviously popular with the Labour party because they seem likely to affect wealthier individuals, have an adverse economic effect. One of the things that we need in this...

Minor Reforms (11 Mar 1952)

Another small matter. Stamp duty on conveyances of small property other than stocks or marketable securities will be reduced. Where the price does not exceed £3,000 the duty will be reduced to 1 per cent. and where the price lies between £3,000 and £3,450 there will be some relief from the 2 per cent. now chargeable. Further, the relief from surtax granted to Lloyd's in 1949 will be...
