Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) – higher rates in purchases of additional residential properties
From 1 April 2016 changes apply to individuals purchasing a residential property in England, Wales and Northern Ireland who, at the end of the day of the transaction, own two or more residential properties and are not replacing a main residence. Companies and other non-natural persons purchasing residential property will also be subject to higher rates, including the first purchase of a residential property in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The higher rates are three percentage points above the previous SDLT rates, as follows:
|Threshold||Previous SDLT rates||New additional property SDLT rates|
|£0 - £125,000||0%||3%|
|£125,000 - £250,000||2%||5%|
|£250,000 - £925,000||5%||8%|
|£925,000 - £1,500,000||10%||13%|
