Stamp Duty Land Tax


A well-written, user-friendly guide to the complexities of SDLT, this book is perfect for non-specialist accountants, solicitors and others who need clear, practical guidance on the topic at an intermediate level.

Topics covered include basic principles, leasehold transactions, partnerships, trusts, reliefs, anti-avoidance legislation and recent tribunal decisions. Full reference is made throughout to relevant legislation, case law and guidance from HMRC.

"It is now, in the reviewer’s opinion, the best guide to SDLT for the general practitioner on the market." – AccountingWeb
