Tamil Nadu government on Friday in the State budget for 2019-20, announced that the stamp duty on property transfer arising in respect of amalgamation or reconstruction of companies will be fixed at 2% of market value of the immovable property or 0.6% of the aggregate of the market value of shares, whichever is higher.
The registration fees payable on such transactions will be fixed at a maximum of ₹30,000.
“Earlier there was no stamp duty charged on such transactions but since the G.O. was issued in November 2018, there was ambiguity in property transactions where full stamp duty and registration fees was expected and interpreted,”
The announcement made in the State budget for 2019-20, removes the confusion and ambiguity prevailing in the industry, after a circular was issued in November last year on the levy of stamp duty on such transactions.
