Securities Transfer Tax Declaration

Securities transfer tax (STT) is levied on the transfer of shares at a rate of 0.25% of the value of the transferred shares. STT is payable by the purchaser however certain exemptions can apply.

Creative CFO can help with this process and will:

  • Assist with the completion of the e-Filing declaration for all share transfers (and possible application of exemptions) within 30 days of the date of transfer; and
  • Assist with the payment process of STT.

Please note:

  • If the securities transfer tax is not paid in full within the set period, interest will be charged at the set rate;
  • A 10% penalty will also be applied, if any amount remains unpaid after the prescribed period or if the taxpayer fails to declare or makes an incorrect statement on the declaration form
