Stamp duty land tax payment deadline now 14 days

Mar 11, 2019

The deadline for paying stamp duty land tax (“SDLT”) and filing SDLT returns for property acquired in England and Northern Ireland is 14 days after the effective date for transactions on or after 1 March 2019.

This change was introduced via a statutory instrument, the Stamp Duty Land Tax (Administration) (Amendment) Regulations 2018. 

The deadline for payment of both stamp duty and stamp duty reserve tax is unchanged.
