Stamp Duty saving ends soon

In order to boost the housing marketing following the nationwide lockdown, earlier this year Chancellor Rishi Sunak announced a major Stamp Duty Land Tax cut.

The previous threshold of £125,000 has increased to £500,000 in England and Northern Ireland, which means for properties purchased for £500,000 or less will not be subject to a Stamp Duty.

In Wales this tax is known as the Land Transaction Tax and the threshold has increased from £180,000 to £250,000.

The Stamp Duty and Land Transaction Tax cuts will both come to an end on 31 March 2021. 

Act now - The stamp duty holiday will end on 31 March 2021
