I am advised by Revenue that page 20 of Revenue’s Ready Reckoner can be used to estimate the yield from changes to the rate of Stamp Duty on shares. The current rate of Stamp Duty on the transfer of shares is 1% and the estimated yield from the proposed increases can be derived on a pro rata basis from the table.

The Ready Reckoner is available at this link: www.revenue.ie/en/corporate/documents/statistics/ready-reckoner.pdf

I am further advised by Revenue that, as Stamp Duty liabilities in respect of the transfer of shares are not returned separately by place of incorporation, information specifically in relation to Irish incorporated companies is not available.
