Our budget views in blue: Stamp Duty Land tax

| 22nd March 2012

With immediate effect SDLT rate of 7% will apply to residential property at over £2m

A penalty rate  of 15% will apply to residential property purchased by a “non-natural” person (e.g.  company) after this limit.

This is (one could argue) a fluffy version of the proposed the “mansion tax”. The overseas company loophole on stamp duty has been closed.
