Stamp duty land tax (SDLT)

Stamp duty land tax (SDLT) is becoming an ever more complex area of taxation.

Purchasing residential property, in particular, can mean two purchasers will pay two completely different liabilities based on who the purchaser is, the ownership of other residential properties and its intended use.

There are a number of reliefs (just for residential property acquisitions) available to both individuals and corporate purchasers, some of which can be very generous but most of which have to be claimed. A specialist will help you to maximise the claimed relief.

In certain circumstances those reliefs can be withdrawn, an ongoing review of your circumstances is therefore essential.
