Understanding Stamp Duty Land Tax by Reginald S. Nock
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This popular and authoritative book has been fully revised to take account of the implementation of Stamp Duty Land Tax. The new system has involved a move from a voluntary tax on documents to a self-assessment tax on land transactions enforced by criminal sanctions. This book gives practitioners a practical guide to Stamp Duty Land Tax and its implications, highlighting pitfalls and suggesting how to avoid them. It includes substantial sections on the role of the professional in investigations of title, due diligence, valuation and assisting the client in completing the return. In addition, it offers: detailed notes on completing the form; routine conveyancing issues that may affect the timing and amount of tax; practical issues for mortgagees and lenders; illustrations of how to calculate the tax on rent; notes on drafting matters; and, indicators and checklists on warranties.
