Stamp Duty Land Tax

This tax is often wrongly calculated, frequently resulting in overpaying tax. It is usually calculated by using the standard government guidance.

  • Stamp Duty Land Tax is complex.  It’s calculated on a ‘stepped’ system.  A surcharge can apply in some cases.  And there are a raft of different exceptions, reliefs and qualifying criteria.
  • Incredibly, HMRC’s Stamp Duty calculator doesn’t include most of the exceptions, meaning the total can be wrong.
  • As a result, solicitors who use this tool often inadvertently miss the opportunity to reduce the tax bill and too much Stamp Duty is paid.
  • Our tax advisers can assess every aspect of your property to ensure you claim everything to which your property is entitled.  It can often produce a substantial Stamp Duty refund.
