A table of rates and thresholds of stamp duty on property transactions (to 30 November 2003) and stamp duty land tax (from 1 December 2003) is published in H M Revenue and Customs' monthly property transaction statistics: see table 8 at:
Rates of ad valorem stamp duty on transfers of stock and marketable securities during the period in question are as follows:
27 October 1986 to 30 September 1999: 50p per £100 or part of £100
1 October 1999 to date: 0.5% rounded up to the next multiple of £5.
The fixed £5 stamp duty which applied to certain transactions, and ad valorem duty on transactions where the consideration is less than £1,000, were abolished from 13 March 2008.
Stamp Duty Reserve Tax (SDRT) on agreements to transfer chargeable securities is charged at the same rate (0.5%) as stamp duty. This rate has been unchanged since 1986.
