Stamp Duty Land Tax is a complex tax, full of traps for the unwary, and there is an increasing amount of case law on it. This book explains the rules clearly and authoritatively to help practitioners comply with the technicalities of the legislation through practical examples that clarify how the law works and what needs to be done in a wide range of situations. Stamp Duty Land Tax provides valued guidance and will allow property owners, tax and property practitioners, lawyers and accountants to know their liabilities and advise on SDLT with confidence.

This new edition of Stamp Duty Land Tax has been thoroughly revised and expanded to cover:

  • The new (September 2022) rates on residential property
  • The 2% surcharge on non-residents
  • Freeport tax sites
  • A full account of new case law, especially on mixed property and multiple dwellings.
