Have You Overpaid SDLT
Everyone must pay Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) on property transactions or non-residential land in England and Northern Ireland. The rules on SDLT have changed massively in the last few years, so it’s vital to seek professional advice for your stamp duty refund, even for the most straightforward of property and land purchase transactions.

How to Reclaim Stamp Duty Land Tax
Our team of SDLT advisors will investigate your purchases, as through no fault of your own, you may have overpaid and could claim an SDLT refund. There are several tax relief and exemptions available as well as the simple fact that the property itself could have been misclassified.
If you are in fact due a refund, we will then go through the process of reclaiming overpaid SDLT with HMRC. All the advice given is from a qualified Chartered Tax Advisor, so you have peace of mind that this is legitimately being inspected and your SDLT repayment is in safe hands.
Our fee then simply becomes payable from the amount of Stamp Duty Land Tax repayment that we claim back on your behalf.
SDLT Tax Refunds
Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is a fee buyers need to pay whenever they buy land or property over a certain price threshold in England and Northern Ireland. The current SDLT threshold is £125,000 for residential properties and £150,000 for non-residential land/properties. Any purchases below these figures won’t be subject to Stamp Duty Land Tax.
Stamp Duty Land Tax is payable whenever the price thresholds for the following are met or exceeded:
- Freehold property purchases
- New or existing leasehold purchases
- Property purchases through Shared Ownership Schemes
- Property or land transfers in exchange for payment
SDLT returns must be filed with the HMRC within 14 days after the completion of purchase.
