Update on Welsh Land Transaction Tax (LTT)

From 1st April 2018, Land Transaction Tax (LTT) will replace Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) in Wales.

Like SDLT, LTT will be payable when you buy or lease a building or land over a certain price. It may affect house buyers and sellers and businesses including builders, property developers and agents involved in the transaction process (such as solicitors and conveyancers).

The legislation is broadly consistent with SDLT, preserving the underlying structure and mirroring key elements such as partnerships, trusts and reliefs, to provide stability and reassurance to businesses and the property market.
