DAILY TRANSACTION TAX DROP TO BOOST VOLUME|提升台股交易量 政院:當沖證交稅砍半

Recently the volume of trading in Taiwan's stock market has been low. For two consecutive days the trading was only around NT$30 billion. The Executive Yuan proposed a bill to cut the transaction tax on day trading by half to raise turnover. It will be cut from the current 0.3 percent to 0.15 percent. As soon as this was announced, trading volumes surged on the last day of trading this year and the TaiEx closed up 100.41 points, which is 1.10 percent. Recently trading on the stock exchange has been sluggish with daily volumes low. On two recent consecutive days, the volume was just NT$30 billion. The Executive Yuan made an emergency move to boost the market by proposing a cut on transaction tax on day trading from the current 0.3 percent to 0.15 percent. ==SHEU YU-JER‎ Minister of Finance== The impact of one year's transaction tax is NT$3.75 billion, as opposed to red trading volume day increases, this, that is, daily trading just needs to increase to NT$10 billion to make up the amount. The MOF emphasized that although it cut daily transaction taxes, the tax loss was not large and was still enough to activate a larger trading volume. Some investors though, do not agree. ==RETAIL INVESTOR== You have to observe, the losses, the escapes, the big investors have gone, there is not enough water left in the pond even for us small fish, we will suffocate too. The Taiwan stock market is very sluggish, and small retail investors chose to observe and don't dare to invest. For the tax cut to have an impact as well as cutting trading day taxes, the Financial Supervisory Commission plans other measures including opening of fixed-term fixed stock and ETF, relaxing the investment limit on the insurance industry, relaxation of banking sector investment in OTC stock quotas. Seven measures are expected to be implemented from January next year. Three other major measures including allowing government-owned foundations to make fixed investment in Taiwan stocks are still in the research stages. ==LEE RUEY-TSANG FSC Chair== Our stock market is sound, we just need measures to bring up the trading volume. On the last day of trading in 2016, trading closed at 9,253 points, up by 100 points. The trading volume was still not high, at NT$56.1 billion. The MOF said that if the third reading passed before Lunar New Year, it would be tried as a pilot scheme for a year and if overall tax volumes weren't affected it would be assessed to continue.
