Is there Stamp Duty payable on Share transfer?

Is there Stamp Duty payable on Share transfer?

A client set up a Limied company with 2 shares on incorporation.

He subsequently went into business with another individual and transfered one share to this individual.

The share was transfered at the Nominal Value (£1), since the company was non-trading and did not have any commercial value.

Is there any Stamp Duty payable on this transfer?

No stamp duty to pay.

Transfer the shares appropriately to achieve this.

If originally

A         75

B         25


Then you could do

33 A to C

8 A to B
