Stamp duty land tax

Stamp duty land tax (SDLT) is an unassumingly technical area of tax legislation. It is not a ‘one size fits all’ tax and each transaction needs to be thoughtfully considered on its unique facts.

As it continues to increase in complexity, we have been coming across more real-life cases where conveyancers have not applied the correct rates of SDLT for property transactions. As a result, many home buyers pay significantly above the odds. The SDLT office imposes strict deadlines for refunds, so overpayments can become irrecoverable by the time the taxpayers become aware.

We have a team of fully-qualified advisers to conduct a full review of each case where valuable reliefs or exemptions in the legislation might have been missed out.

We do not promote SDLT avoidance schemes, and our expertise covers leases or purchases of residential, commercial, and mixed use properties.
