Land Transaction Tax

When you buy a residential property in Wales over a certain price you have to pay the Land Transaction Tax (LTT).

What is Land Transaction Tax?

Land Transaction Tax (LTT) is a tax you're liable to pay when you buy a residential property, or a piece of land, costing more than £180,000 in Wales for your primary residence and more than £40,000 on any additional properties. The tax is collected by the Welsh Revenue Authority and is used to support public services in Wales. The transaction tax rate will vary depending on the price of your chosen property and your reason for buying it.

If you're buying in England and Northern Ireland you will pay Stamp Duty Land Tax.

How much Land Transaction Tax will I pay?

Use the Land Transaction Tax (LTT) calculator to find out roughly how much transaction tax you may pay depending on your reason for buying the property and it's valuation. 

The calculation is based on the transaction rates from 1st April 2018 approved by the National Assembly for Wales. It is important to consider LTT when thinking about buying a house as in some cases it could be a considerable amount.

If you are purchasing a second home, please refer to the calculator on the Welsh Government website for full guidance.
