From 1st March 2019 SDLT must be submitted and paid within 14 days of completion

Are you ready for this change?

As of 1st March 2019 the timeframe to submit a Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) return, and pay any SDLT due, will reduce from 30 days to 14 days from the effective date of the transaction. Pali’s recently launched Post Completion System enables solicitors, conveyancers and support staff across England and Wales to submit their SDLTor LTT and AP1 forms via the Pali Platform in a quick and easy way using advanced time-saving tools. The soon to be reduced timeframe of 14 days does not apply to Wales however, and by utilising the Pali system this will help keep timelines in order as the system will detect whether the property in question is English or Welsh, making it one less thing for you to worry about.

Pali made the decision to expand the functionality of their online system to allow their clients to complete all their tasks under one roof. Streamlining the post-completion process for users not only improves efficiency but Pali’s SDLT or LTT and AP1 application drastically reduces the risk of human error due to the high level of technology applied. Information is automatically passed across from the SDLT/LTT to the AP1 submission forms removing the need to re-key duplicate data thus saving valuable time. Furthermore, for Commercial conveyancers you can submit your MR01 and MR04 forms online and the system even incorporates the eSubmitting of Welsh Land Transaction Tax by enabling users to manage LTT Submissions along side the English SDLT equivalents.

There are many other benefits in using Pali’s SDLT and AP1 system including a full permanent audit trail, the facility to draft forms in advance and flexibility to skip between sections in no particular order.

  • Seamless integration with HMRC SDLT return or WRA LTT and Land Registry’s AP1 application process
  • Helps you comply with the Law Society rules
  • Easy to use as Same layout as paper version
  • Errors reported before submissionattempt
  • HMRC online access not necessary to draft and process forms
  • Forms are never deleted unlike with HMRC, making your GDPR requirements easier to manage and administer
  • Can create multiple time-saving templatesand stores details for re-use

By utilising Pali’s Post Completion System you can rest assured your SDLT/LTT and AP1 lodgements will be completed in the fastest, simplest way.

Pali’s latest development means clients can now manage the whole process from start to finish:

Once you have entered the initial information there is no need to enter it again. The data is automatically passed across every stage removing the need to continuously type the same details over and over again therefore speeding up the process and freeing up time for you to spend on more pressing matters. Everything is carried out from the same platform which acts as a ‘one stop shop’ and as we have integrated with Case Management Systems you only need to log in to one system, to access everything you need. If you use a Case Management System we haven’t integrated with we are more than happy to integrate with them.

For more information or to arrange a demonstration please contact a friendly member of the Pali team on 0800 023 5030 / search@paliltd.com

Christmas Fundraising Event Supported By Pali Another Success!

Back in November we issued a blog revealing details of the Christmas fundraising event Steph Lyke from SAS Daniels Solicitors and a group of friends organise annually, which Pali proudly supports.

The event took place on the 28th of December 2018 at Connah’s Quay Navy Club in Deeside and once again was a complete success!

The fundraiser is always in aid of local charities and this year the chosen charities were Wales Air Ambulance and Deeside Hospital Palliative Care Centre.

The two hundred and fifty attendees that helped raise funds were entertained by the band ‘Whole of the Moon’ and were also treated to a large raffle and auction with all the proceeds going to the charities.

The prizes on offer on the night included iPads, Gym Memberships, Disney Samsonite suitcases and an alcohol hamper provided by Pali.

Following the great success of the event, we are please to announce that the final count of the money raised was a whopping £5190!

The charity nights have come a long way from when they held their first party eighteen years ago when the grand sum of £900 was raised for Hope House Hospice.

We would like to congratulate Steph and her fellow organisers once again for their continued incredible fundraising. We can’t wait to see what the grand total will be for 2019!

Pali’s Christmas Shoe Box Appeal

After last year’s success, Pali is supporting the Charles Thompson Mission Christmas Appeal again. With the weather getting considerably colder and Christmas is fast approaching, times are especially hard for people without a home.

The Charles Thompson Mission have a keen passion to provide year round help and donations to people living on the streets and families struggling to get by, giving them hygiene products, food and other necessary equipment to make their life a little easier.

The Mission ask for donations of essential items such as deodorant, shower gel, shampoo and conditioner, razors, hair brushes etc. As well as rucksacks, tents, sleeping bags and toys. More items and information about the appeal can be found HERE.

The Mission aims to provide homeless people with as many essential items which most people always have access to. They also aim to help families struggling to give their children a good Christmas. Any donations of new toys for all ages can take the stress away for parents struggling at this time of year.

At a time of giving please consider people without a home this Christmas, without heating, a bed and even food.

If you would like to support the Christmas Appeal, items can be donated to:

Charles Thompson’s Mission,
Hemingford Street,
Birkenhead CH41 4AP

or to Pali HQ –

2-4 Croxteth Avenue
Wallasey
Wirral
CH44 5UL

Every donation is hugely appreciated by us and even more so by the recipients. Even if it isn’t much to you it could make a big difference to somebody else. Do something great this Christmas and get involved any way you can.

Pali Help Raise Funds For Christmas Charity Event

For the past seventeen years Steph Lyke from BBH Legal and a group of her friends organise a charity Christmas party at Connah’s Quay Navy Club.

There is something for everybody with an auction, raffle, a band and a disco. There are only 250 tickets for the event which are all sold every year.

The proceeds from the raffle and tickets are donated to local charities. Over the past seventeen years Steph and her friends have raised in excess of £54,000. Beneficiaries in the past include:

  • Hope House Hospice
  • Nightingale House Hospice
  • Backford House Hospice
  • Shooting Star Unit Wrexham Maelor Hospital
  • Clatterbridge Cancer Charity
  • MacMillan Cancer Support
  • MNDA
  • Awyr Las
  • MIND Clwyd

This years event will be raising money for North Wales Air Ambulance (Registered Charity Number 10833645) and Deeside Hospital Palliative Care Centre. These charities are in desperate need of funds as they play a vital role in helping the community.

Pali are delighted to support the charity night again and we have no doubt this years fundraiser is going to be another huge success.

If you would like to donate to the cause, purchase a ticket to the event or provide raffle prizes, please contact Pali and we will happily arrange this.
