    As the difference between the selling price and market value is only $0.2m, the stamp duty will probably base on the selling price of $0.78m. However, if the value is finally assessed by Inland Revenue Departement to be $8m, then the stamp duty will base on this amount.

    In practice, the Inland Revenue will seldom do that.

    Remark: The stamp duty will only be levied on the value of the property and not on B's turnover.

    It should be an economics question.
