Changes to Stamp Duty Land Tax Returns Submission Deadlines

With effect from 1 March 2019, following the completion of property purchases the deadline for submitting Stamp Duty Land Tax Returns to HMRC will be reduced from 30 days to 14 days. This change gives effect to the Government’s proposal in their 2017 Autumn Budget.

If the Return is not submitted within the new 14-day deadline, a late-submission penalty fee  will become payable.

Further changes are also expected in the near future, including the introduction of a more streamlined Tax Return with a view to simplifying the submission process.

If you have any questions in relation to this change, please contact James Gostling or Charles Edwards in our Real Estate & Projects Team’.
