Changes to Land Transaction Tax rates and bands

The threshold for Land Transaction Tax (LTT) increased from £180,000 to £225,000 from 10 October 2022. Properties costing between £225,000 and £400,000 are subject to a rate of six per cent.

The remaining rates are unchanged, with the next £350,000 subject to a rate of 7.5 per cent, the next £300,000 being charged at 10 per cent and anything over £1.5 million at 12 per cent.

The removal of the 3.5 per cent rate between £180,000 and £250,000 and the introduction of the new six per cent band means there will be winners and losers from the change. As a result, you can elect to apply transitional provisions if you had exchanged contracts before 10 October 2022 but had not completed the transaction.
