Stamp Duty Land Tax is complex and ever-shifting, subject to more alterations since it was introduced in 2003 than any other comparable tax. 

The legislation governing it is now full of exceptions, exemptions and reliefs, aimed at covering the vast variety of property types and property buyers.

Not all of these are obvious to conveyancers and property solicitors who are generally inclined – thanks to lack of help from HMRC and conflicting messages from their regulator, the SRA – to differentiate simply between a whether a property is residential or commercial for purposes of SDLT calculation.

It is estimated that 1 in 5 SDLT calculations are wrong.  This is where Cornerstone come in.  We have been delivering trusted, quality, property tax advice for 15 years, serving private clients, solicitors, accountants and agents
