Following the 2014 autumn statement Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) has been restructured for residential land transactions. Instead of the single slab approach in which one rate of tax applies to the entire purchase price, SDLT is now paid at the rate of tax applicable to the purchase price within each band.
