Changes to submission of stock transfer forms
HMRC have announced changes to the way they will deal with stamp duty on the sale of shares due to coronavirus (COVID-19) measures.
If you need to submit a stock transfer form (or other instrument of transfer) to HMRC, you should not post the original to HMRC – instead, you must email an electronic version of the form to HMRC at [email protected]
The form must be fully completed, signed and dated. We note that HMRC will accept e-signatures while coronavirus (COVID-19) measures are in place.
If you have recently posted a stock transfer form and not received it back stamped, you should resubmit the notification electronically to HMRC at [email protected] and include the details of any payments you have made in respect of that notification.
If you do not resubmit your notification electronically, your instrument of transfer will not be assessed or returned to you until temporary coronavirus (COVID-19) measures end.
