Prime Minister Harv wanted to impose 28% capital gains tax, now finally withdrawn, but damage is done to the market. Index dragged down by hundreds of points. What a capital market friendly PM we have. He is only favorable to manipulate and push the bond interests rates up[b][/b]

ECONOMYNEXT - No changes were planned for taxes on stock market trading in revamped income tax law being presented to parliament tomorrow, State Minister for Finance Eran Wickramaratne said.

"There will not be a change on how stock market transactions are taxed," Wickramaratne told reporters in Colombo.

"The current share transaction levy will continue."

The new Inland Revenue bill proposed a steep 28 percent tax on profits of stock trading (capital gains), instead of a more reasonable rate like 5 or 10 percent, while long term investment would remain free of tax.

At the moment only 0.3 percent tax is imposed on stock at the point of purchase. The new administration however slapped a 15 percent value added tax on hospital care.

Over 100 amendments are planned for the bill from what was originally gazetted, officials have said. (Colombo/Aug24/2017)

Very true. This is not the first time the Govt caused confusion & panic among investors in relation to imposing CGT dragging indices down.

I wonder whether this is deliberately done for some to benefit. Anything & Everything is possible under 'Yamapalanaya'.
