Stamp Duty & FTT Service

The gradual, but in certain cases, sudden introduction of taxes on financial transactions in several countries brought challenges for the financial industry. The FTT Service from SIX helps financial intermediaries to easily identify and comply with the complex regulations.

Spanish FTT Service

The Spanish FTT add-on service from SIX allows firms to identify financial instruments that fall under the Spanish Financial Tax regime. The data allows for identification of transactions in Shares and depository receipts of companies that meet the market capitalization threshold set in the FTT law. It supports pre-trade checks and operational requirements for calculating the 0.2% tax on eligible transactions.

French FTT Service

The French FTT is payable on the transfer of ownership of any equity instrument issued by a French listed company whose market capitalization exceeds EUR 1 billion on 1 January of the year during which the transfer occurs. SIX provides the following information: in-scope flag, tax rate.

Italian FTT Service

The tax applies to all listed instruments with the exception of instruments issued by Italian companies with average market value of less than EUR 500 million as of November of the previous year. The Italian Ministry of Economy intends to publish a list of such “not-in-scope” companies on 20 December of each year. SIX provides the following information: in-scope flag, tax rate.
