6% stamp duty on non-residential property holding companies and vehicles

The latest tax proposal is to try to impose stamp duty on non-residential property holding companies and other vehicles at a rate of 6% instead of the current 1% rate.

Following the Government announcement to raise stamp duty to 6% on non-residential property on 11 October 2017 persons have been looking at other tax efficient ways to transfer property.

One option is to purchase the property outright (6% stamp duty applies) and another option is to purchase the vehicle that owns the property.  If the shares in a company that owns property is acquired then staamp duty applies at the rate of 1% until 6 December 2017.

The current proposal is to increase the stamp duty to 6% in limited circumstances (so that non-residential property is only affected) .
