Share Services FAQs

What is stamp duty?

For shares over £1,000, the J30 stock transfer form is required to be stamped by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC). The payment for this is known as stamp duty and is currently 0.5% of the share amount, rounded to the nearest £5.

For example, to transfer shares valued at £1,800, 0.5 x 1800 = £9.00 so a £10 stamp duty fee is payable.

How do I pay the stamp duty?

For all share transfers valued over £1,000, we recommend speaking with a solicitor for further information.

What class of shares can be issued?

Currently, shares of the same class/value as the company's initial shares can be issued. We do not get involved in creating or issuing new classes of shares.

How many shares can be issued at any one time?

There is no maximum on the amount of shares that can be issued.

What information do I need to provide to transfer shares?

To process a share transfer we require:

  • The name and address of the person who is transferring the shares
  • The name and address of the person who is receiving the shares
  • The number of shares being transferred
