Egypt introduces stamp duty on stock market deals today


Published 2017-06-28 12:38:31| Amwal Al Ghad English

Egypt’s new stamp duty on stock exchange transactions has come into effect on Wednesday The duty has been set at 1.25 Egyptian pounds per 1,000 for the first year of the tax's introduction, rising to 1.5 pounds in the second year and 1.75 in the third. More than 270 companies are listed on the Egyptian stock exchange and more than 500,000 investors are registered to trade there. The finance ministry is targeting revenues of 1-1.5 billion Egyptian pounds ($54.8 million-$82.2 million) in the first year of the new tax, deputy finance minister Amr al-Munayer said in a telephone interview with Reuters last March. Egypt imposed a stamp duty on buyers and sellers in May 2013, collecting more than 350 million Egyptian pounds in revenues before the levy was replaced in July 2014 by a 10 percent capital gains tax. The government suspended the capital gains tax in May 2015 for two years, under pressure from investors. They said it was discouraging business just as Egypt was struggling to recover from a plunge in confidence after a 2011 uprising and subsequent political upheaval. The Higher Investment Council last year extended the suspension of capital gains tax until 2020 as part of efforts to draw investors back. Instead, Egypt plans to revive the stamp duty as part of an economic reform programme that helped it win a $12 billion three-year loan from the International Monetary Fund.
Arab
Stocks prone to speculative trade dragged Dubai's equity index down Wednesday while Egypt's blue chip developer Talaat Mostafa Group outperformed on news its former chairman has been pardoned and named chief executive. Dubai's index dropped 0.7 percent in the lowest daily volume in one year. Shares of builder Arabtec fell 8.5 percent; on Wednesday the company said it has raised 1.5 billion dirhams in equity as part of its recapitalisation programme and "extinguished the company’s accumulated losses of AED 4.6 billion as at December 31 2016". GFH Financial, the most heavily traded stock, however, climbed 3.1 percent on news that it had agreed to sell part of its real estate portfolio, which it said had an "approximate value" of $55 million. The book value of the asset is $20 million. In neighbouring Abu Dhabi, some large caps, which were the main drag on the bourse earlier in the session, reversed course and helped take the index 0.4 percent higher. First Abu Dhabi added 1.4 percent to 10.65 dirhams ($2.90) after hitting a session low of 10.40 dirhams. Kuwait's index closed flat in very thin trade. Blue chip banks outperformed with Warba Bank adding 1.2 percent while Boubyan Petrochemical lost 1.0 percent.
World
European stock markets ended lower on Wednesday, as technology stocks slumped after weakness seen on Wall Street in the previous session. The pan-European Stoxx 600 was little changed, down 0.04 percent, with sectors and major bourses mixed. Europe's technology sector were among the worst-performers on Wednesday as jitters hit the market. In the U.S., the Nasdaq composite underperformed, falling 1.6 percent, as shares of Google-parent Alphabet declined more than 2 percent on Tuesday. The slump also follows a worldwide ransomware attack. The hack caused major disruption at banks and large firms including WPP, Moeller-Maersk, and Metro. Burberry dropped more than 3.4 percent, hitting the bottom of the benchmark after a Bloomberg report that it faces investors advisory groups' wrath on executive pay. In currency markets, the euro was volatile to monetary policy comments. The euro turned lower against the dollar, falling from a day's high, after media reports suggested that investors misjudged comments from President Mario Draghi of the ECB on Tuesday. At the end of the European session it had recovered ground, trading at $1.1355. Meanwhile, in the U.S., markets were higher with the Dow Jones industrial average jumping more than 100 points, with Goldman Sachs contributing the most gains.
