Some sources on the Internet tell that buying shares on UK stocks is assessed to a stamp tax duty of 0.5% of trade value for UK stocks and 1.0% of trade value for Irish listed stocks.
I recently bought shares in a Ireland-domiciled ETF using an EU-based broker. Following the transaction I don't see any commission to cover the stamp duty.
Please explain in which cases the stamp tax duty is not charged on UK stocks. May it vary from broker to broker?
