stamp duty and SDLT advice

We can help with all your share purchases and property transactions


Stamp duty and stamp duty land tax (SDLT) can add significant extra burdens to property and share purchase costs.

We can help you navigate the rules, to ensure that all available SDLT and stamp duty reliefs are claimed and that there are no nasty surprises. SDLT rules have changed many times in recent years, so up to date advice is key.

We advise regularly on the stamp duty and SDLT treatments of a wide range of different transactions, including purchases of English commercial and residential properties.

Our team includes a member of the Chartered Instititute of Taxation’s (CIOT’s) Stamp Taxes Practitioners Group, so you can be sure that you are getting advice from an expert in this area.

Our clients

We advise businesses of all sizes, from well-known names to start-ups and small to medium sized businesses.

We advise individuals buying new homes for personal use, as well as property investors and developers.

Many of our regular clients are professional advisers, from law firms or accountancy practices which lack the specific stamp duty and SDLT expertise that we can offer. We are happy to work alongside other firms of advisers to offer a seamless service to your clients.
