Egyptian Finance Minister Amr al-Garhy plans to propose a stamp duty on stock market transactions on buyers and sellers starting at 1.25 Egyptian pounds ($0.0774) per 1,000 to the government next week, he told Reuters on Wednesday. The tax would go up to 1.5 pounds per 1,000 in the second year of its implementation and 1.75 pounds in its third. "We will propose next week to the cabinet that the stamp duty comes in steps," Garhy told Reuters. Egypt imposed a stamp duty on buyers and sellers in May 2013, collecting more than 350 million Egyptian pounds ($18.77 million) in revenue before the levy was replaced in July 2014 by a 10 percent capital gains tax. It 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 for three years, until 2020 as part of efforts to draw investors back. "We are working on not affecting the size or value of transactions in the market," Garhy said of the decision to bring the tax about in steps. A senior ministry official had told Reuters on Thursday that the ministry would propose a tax of 2 pounds per 1,000. The proposed tax would have to be approved by the cabinet of ministers before being sent to parliament for a vote. More»

Egypt's Finance Ministry is recommending a tax on stock exchange transactions of 0.2 percent on both sellers and buyers, Reuters has cited a senior ministry official as saying. The official said he expected the stamp duty to come into effect before May and to generate revenue of 1 billion to 1.5 billion Egyptian pounds ($63 million to $94.5 million) in 2017/18. "We will send the income tax law amendments in early March to parliament, and they will include imposing a stamp tax on bourse transactions of 4 pounds per 1,000, which will be 2 pounds per 1,000 on the seller and 2 pounds per 1,000 on the buyer," the official said. "We are targeting implementation of that tax before next May," he added. The EGX 30 main index fell by 1.34 percent after the news, but economists said investors would take it well, having expected, and priced in, a higher tax rate. "The stamp tax of 0.2 pct is definitely below market speculation of 0.4 to 0.5 percent, so this is more of a relief for the market, which had been pricing in a much higher rate, said Allen Sandeep, head of research at Naeem Brokerage in Cairo. "While this is an acceptable rate for an emerging market like Egypt, deferment of the tax charge would still be the ideal scenario, given the (current) emphasis on attracting foreign capital," he added.

More than 270 companies are listed on the Egyptian stock exchange and more than 500,000 investors are registered to trade there. More»

Stock markets in Europe were lower Thursday morning, with investors pausing for breath after fresh record closes on Wall Street in the previous session. The pan-European Stoxx 600 was 0.32 percent lower with basic resources and insurance stocks the worst performers in early deals. The insurance group NN was at the bottom of the European benchmark after disappointing full-year results. Cobham, the British manufacturing company, was the worst-performing stock in the morning session, down by 21 percent after downgrading its profit guidance. Ex-dividend stocks were also dragging down bourses like the FTSE 100 on Thursday. Meanwhile, Nestle was down by more than 1 percent after lower-than-expected results. Air France-KLM jumped 8.5 percent in early trade after reporting strong earnings. Several airlines moved higher on Thursday, with Intl Consol Air and Lufthansa at the top of the European benchmark. Elsewhere, the Austrian oil and gas company OMV climbed near the top of the Stoxx 600 after hiking its dividend for this year. In other corporate news, German authorities said they weren't satisfied that they were not informed that General Motors planned to sell its ailing European arm to Peugeot according to the Financial Times. Concerns have been raised that it could result in a mass layoff in German factories, a few months away from a federal election. Meanwhile, NATO defense ministers continued with a second-day summit in Brussels on Thursday and foreign ministers of the G-20 are gathering in Bonn, Germany. In terms of data, the European Central Bank is set to release the minutes of its January meeting. Car registrations in Europe rose 10.2 percent year-over-year in January, accelerating from a 3.0 percent rise in December. In France, data showed the unemployment rate dropping to 10 percent at the end of last year. U.S. stocks closed at fresh highs Wednesday for a fifth-straight day as traders continued to bet on a pro-growth agenda under President Donald Trump. More»

Egypt and Sydney bourses have signed Wednesday a memorandum of understanding that aims to exchange information across their business areas. Through the MoU, the Egyptian Exchange (EGX) and Sydney Stock Exchange (SSX) shall create possibilities for a range of opportunities aimed to develop their businesses, products, and markets as well as to share knowledge and build on both bourses’ strategies of strengthening international connectivity. “This memorandum of understanding further complements EGX’s strategy to cooperate with global exchanges beyond its traditional markets in Africa, the Middle East, and Europe.” Egyptian bourse chairman Mohamed Omran said. “It is the first time ever that EGX has signed an MoU with an exchange located in Australia. We look forward to a fruitful collaboration with SSX for the benefit of both exchanges, and aim to cross list and trade securities that would provide new investment alternatives to investors in both markets,” he added. “This collaboration will extend SSX’s reach beyond Asia Pacific to Africa and encourage trade and capital flows between Australia and Egypt.” said Tony Sacre, chief executive of Sydney Stock Exchange. “Africa is a strong trade corridor for the Australian and Asian economies.” Sacre added. The Australian official further said that the new partnership with the Egyptian bourse would focus on developing innovative companies and listings in sectors such as mining, oil and gas, real estate, technology, agribusiness, and consumer and business services.
