HAVE YOU OVERPAID SDLT?

Everyone must pay Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) on property transactions or non-residential land in England and Northern Ireland. The rules on SDLT have changed massively in the last few years, so it’s vital to seek professional advice for your stamp duty refund, even for the most straightforward of property and land purchase transactions.

SDLT REFUNDS

If you have already completed your land and buildings transaction, you may be entitled to a Stamp Duty Land Tax Refund. Reclaiming SDLT can be complicated for both individuals and businesses, because of the various legislation surrounding the process.

SDLT RELIEF

The most popular form of Stamp Duty Land Tax relief is the SDLT first time buyer relief, which was introduced in 2017. The SDLT relief reduces the amount of tax paid on the property and it applies to residential property purchases after 22 November 2017 with a value of £500,000 or less.

SDLT EXEMPTIONS

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is charged on property transactions in the UK when their value is above a set threshold. Depending on the nature of these transactions, there are some cases when the buyer will qualify for SDLT relief or Stamp Duty exemptions.

WHY ARE YOU OVERPAYING?

Overpaid stamp duty land tax is common for several reasons. The 2016 changes to stamp duty cover the majority of properties but very few professionals are aware of these and the public even less so. There are also some serious shortcomings in the HMRC SDLT tax calculator, which is designed to only serve as a ‘mere guide’. If you used the HMRC tax calculator during this period you may have overpaid tax and therefore be entitled to an SDLT refund.

How To Reclaim Stamp Duty Land Tax

Our team of SDLT advisors will investigate your purchases, as through no fault of your own, you may have overpaid and could claim an SDLT refund. There are several tax relief and exemptions available as well as the simple fact that the property itself could have been misclassified.

If you are in fact due a refund, we will then go through the process of reclaiming overpaid SDLT with HMRC. All the advice given is from a qualified Chartered Tax Advisor, so you have peace of mind that this is legitimately being inspected and your SDLT repayment is in safe hands.

Our fee then simply becomes payable from the amount of Stamp Duty Land Tax repayment that we claim back on your behalf.
