125Abolition of stamp duty except on instruments relating to stock or marketable securitiesE+W+S+N.I.

(1)Stamp duty is chargeable under Schedule 13 of the Finance Act 1999 (c. 16) only on instruments relating to stock or marketable securities.

(2)Section 12 of the Finance Act 1895 (c. 16) (collection of stamp duty in cases of property vested by Act or purchased under statutory powers) does not apply to property other than stock or marketable securities.

(3)This section shall be construed as one with the Stamp Act 1891 (c. 39).

(4)Part 1 of Schedule 20 to this Act contains provisions supplementing this section and Part 2 of that Schedule provides for consequential amendments and repeals.

(5)This section and that Schedule have effect—

(a)in relation to an instrument effecting a land transaction [F1(or any duplicate or counterpart of such an instrument)], if the transaction—

(i)is an SDLT transaction within the meaning of Schedule 19 to this Act (stamp duty land tax: commencement and transitional provisions), or

(ii)would be such a transaction but for an exemption or relief from stamp duty land tax;

(b)in relation to an instrument effecting a transaction other than a land transaction [F2(or any duplicate or counterpart of such an instrument)], if the instrument is executed on or after the implementation date for the purposes of stamp duty land tax (see paragraph 2(2) of that Schedule).

For this purpose an instrument effecting both a land transaction and a transaction other than a land transaction [F3(or any duplicate or counterpart of such an instrument)] is treated as if it were two instruments to which paragraph (a) and paragraph (b) above respectively applied.

(6)Where in the case of an instrument effecting both a land transaction and a transaction other than a land transaction the result of applying subsection (5) is that stamp duty is chargeable on either or both of the deemed instruments, the enactments relating to stamp duty have effect as if—

(a)there were two instruments as mentioned in the closing words of that subsection,

(b)the consideration had been apportioned between them in a just and reasonable manner, and

(c)the amount found on that apportionment to be attributable to the chargeable instrument, or (as the case may be) to each of them, had been set forth distinctly in that instrument.

(7)In subsections (5) and (6) “land transaction” has the same meaning as in Part 4 of this Act.

(8)This section and Schedule 20 have effect subject to [F4paragraph 31] of Schedule 15 to this Act (continued application of stamp duty in relation to certain partnership transactions).
