Residential SDLT Podcast

Podcast host, Miri Stickland, chats to Oliver Claridge from Forsters’ tax group and Georgina Haddon from the residential property team about the impact of recent changes to the already complex residential SDLT regime and their top tips for overseas buyers.

“There’s a complicated mix of different rates, increases, reliefs and exemptions. For example, if you or your spouse or civil partner have an interest in another dwelling worldwide, that can bring you within a different regime at higher SDLT rates.”

“Making sure you are paying the correct amount of tax requires a forensic analysis on a case by case basis. Within the last couple of years HMRC have dramatically increased the scope of their investigations, so it is important to get it right.”
