Have your say on stamp duty and share transactions

Oct 02, 2017

A public consultation on the stamp duty regime that applies to share transactions in Irish incorporated companies has been launched by the Minister for Finance.  The consultation seeks views on the rationale for retaining stamp duty on share transactions in its current form. 

According to the Minister for Finance, the consultation is an opportunity to have an input to the Department of Finance’s review of the stamp duty regime and this review is “another element of our on-going examinations of the changing financial and economic environment in the context of Brexit”.

The consultation period runs until 31 October. Further details are available on the department’s website
