What is Stamp Duty?
Stamp Duty or the Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is a tax levied on every property purchase in the UK and paid by the buyer of a property. The amount of stamp duty to be paid is based mainly on the value of the property (although, as seen below, a number of other lesser factors should also be used to calculate the amount.)
Why Are People Claiming Refunds on Stamp Duty?
Anyone who buys land or a property in England and Norther Ireland is required to pay the Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT). Because there have been numerous changes to the rules on SDLT over the last few years (and changes to the exemptions to those rules) it is estimated that tens of thousands of people may have overpaid their stamp duty. The chief reasons for overpayment were (a) changes to the tax regulations (b) problems with the government’s own online stamp duty calculator and (c) solicitors’ lack of knowledge of stamp duty exemptions.
