What is a Stamp Duty Claim?

A Stamp Duty claim refers to the process of declaring and paying Stamp Duty Land Tax (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.

Our mission is to demystify SDLT for property buyers, investors, and advisors alike. Understanding SDLT is crucial when purchasing property in the UK.

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.
