New Years Resolution to Save Tax – Relief from Additional 3% Stamp Duty Land Tax Charge

Much of the focus in the Autumn Budget on Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) concerned the abolition of the duty for first-time buyers of property up to £300,000. There was also welcome news for those involved in other property transfers where the 3% supplementary SDLT charge potentially applies when an interest in a second property is acquired.

The 3% supplementary charge will not now apply where a court order issued on a divorce or dissolution of a civil partnership prevents someone from disposing of their interest in the main residence or a spouse buys property from their spouse. There are a couple of other situations where the 3% supplement does not apply. This is something to check with your solicitor.
