KPMG Global has created a new resource centre to track the introduction of the financial transaction tax (FTT), a European transactions tax that is proposed to be levied on financial institutions carrying out transactions in securities and derivatives. In general, the proposed rate of tax is 0.1% for shares and bonds and 0.01% for derivatives. Pension funds would not be subject to the FTT. The FTT is currently proposed to take effect from January 1, 2014.

To keep track of the latest FTT developments, KPMG Global has created a new FTT site tracking the latest KPMG publications, official documents from the EU and specific country initiatives.
