€ 50 billion

Sunday 6 May 2012

This is the expected revenue from the financial transaction tax promoted by the EU. The proposal is expected to come into effect from 1st January 2014 and applies to the transactions carried out by financial institutions (banks, investment firms, insurance undertakings, collective investment undertakings, etc.) acting as party to a transaction, either for their own account or for the account of other persons. Most financial instruments (securities, bonds, etc.) and derivatives thereof (such as options or swaps) will be covered by the tax.

The proposed rates are 0.1% on financial instruments and 0.01% on derivatives.
