Land and Buildings Transaction Tax

Land and Buildings Transaction Tax (LBTT) is a tax that anyone buying a property or land costing more than a set amount has to pay. The rate you'll pay the tax at varies based on the price of the property and the type of use, for example residential or commercial.

Changes made to the stamp duty land tax in the Chancellor's Autumn Statement 2014 have done away with the fixed rate system, where a single rate was paid on the entire property price, in favour of a more progressive scaled system where a certain percentage is paid at different portions of the property value.
