15% stamp duty tax on homes worth more than £2m

Mon 26 Mar 2012

The UK government 2012 budget has introduced a 15% stamp duty tax on homes worth more than £2m that are bought through a company. Whilst this might come as unwelcome news to some it ensures that the majority of those active in the buy-to-let business sector purchasing residential property via company vehicles are unaffected.

The government also introduced a new 7% stamp duty rate on residential property bought personally above £2m.

I can continue with my busy life away from the area assured that my property is in the best hands"
