WHAT IS A STAMP DUTY CLAIM?

A Stamp Duty claim refers to the process of declaring and paying SDLT due on a property purchase. SDLT is a tax on property transactions in the UK, and the claim involves calculating the tax based on the property’s purchase price and other factors.

The SDLT legislation is intricate, encompassing over 40 distinct reliefs. However, conveyancers and agents often lack complete awareness or consideration of these reliefs. Generally, they depend on the HMRC tax calculator, which, while easily accessible, offers a simplified approach. Furthermore, certain reliefs can be claimed retrospectively.

Due to these complexities and general oversights, many property buyers end up paying more Stamp Duty Land Tax than necessary.

ELIGIBILITY FOR A STAMP DUTY REFUND CLAIM

Are you wondering if you’re eligible for a Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) refund? You might have grounds for a claim if you find yourself in any of these situations, which often indicate you may have received inadequate advice:

  • Did you buy an investment property?
  • Did you purchase a second home, or acquire a new home before selling your original one?
  • Have you bought a property with an annex?
  • Were you involved in a shared ownership property purchase?
  • Did you buy a property with defects such as damp, structural problems, electrical faults, asbestos, or incomplete kitchen or bathroom? (This list isn’t exhaustive; please reach out for a more detailed discussion.)
  • Did your property purchase involve mixed-use, like part of it being used commercially (e.g., a shop or farm)?
  • Have you transferred a property into a pension, like a SIPP?
At Stamp Duty Refunds, we offer a complimentary review of your transaction. If we identify that you’ve overpaid on Stamp Duty, our team is prepared to retrieve any excess amounts on a ‘no win no fee’ basis.

What are the benefits of filing a Stamp Duty claim?

Navigating Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is challenging due to its complex legislative framework and dynamic rules. The required payment depends on several factors like the property’s value, current rates, and the purchaser’s situation. Often, incorrect SDLT payments occur due to calculation errors, over-reliance on HMRC’s SDLT calculator, failure to consider the property’s condition, or not accounting for the buyer’s unique circumstances. These intricacies frequently lead to overpayments in SDLT.

  • Financial Recovery: The most direct benefit is the potential recovery of funds if you’ve overpaid SDLT due to miscalculation, misunderstanding of exemptions, or other errors.
  • Awareness of SDLT Reliefs: The process can increase your awareness of various SDLT reliefs and exemptions you may be entitled to, potentially leading to savings in current or future property transactions.
  • Correction of Errors: Filing a claim allows you to correct errors in your SDLT payment, ensuring compliance with tax laws and avoiding possible future disputes with tax authorities.
  • Expert Advice and Support: Often, the claim process involves engaging with tax professionals, providing you access to expert advice that can be beneficial for future property transactions.
  • Setting Precedents for Future Transactions: Successfully claiming a refund can set a precedent, ensuring more accurate assessments in future transactions.

SDLT is a self assessed tax and calculated by you or your advisors when you purchase a property be
that residential, commercial or even land. Rates differ and they are applied depending on the type of
property and the purchase price of the property.

If you purchased a property that meets any of the following criteria, you potentially could have overpaid SDLT:

  • Have you purchased an investment property?
  • Have you purchased a second home or a second home before you sold your original home?
  • Have you purchased a property with an annexe?
  • Have you purchased a property under a shared ownership scheme?
  • Have you purchased a property which had defects such as: damp, structural issues, electrical issues, asbestos present, incomplete kitchen or bathroom.  (Note: This is not an exhaustive list so please contact us to discuss further).
  • Have you purchased a property with mixed use, i.e. part of the building has a commercial use, such as a shop, or a farm.
  • Have you transferred a property into a pension e.g. a SIPP

In order to submit a claim to HMRC for any overpaid SDLT, you must detail on what basis you believe you have been overcharged. This is a complicated and technical matter and we partner with a specialist tax advisory firm to ensure we detail in full the basis of the reclaim.

We will need to review the property transaction documents and the SDLT form submitted, but don’t worry if you don’t have these to hand, as our team will liaise with the relevant parties to get the documentation required.

We submit each claim with a complete report on how the SDLT came to be overcharged and the amount due back to you, on this basis HMRC typically take 8 weeks to process the reclaim as they have all the documentation they require at the point of submitting your reclaim.

HMRC typically say up to 4 years, however this is not a hard and fast rule and we believe that claims up to 6 years should be reviewed.

  • Specialist tax advisors are involved on every case and if necessary we will pay for specialist advice.
  • We take a professional approach to each case and will only pursue a HMRC rebate if we consider it has a real prospect of success.
  • HMRC rebate claims are professionally and individually prepared and are submitted with the relevant evidence to support such a claim.
  • We believe that by taking this approach you can be confident that you have a rebate claim with a strong prospect of success.
