The recent stamp duty holiday is a much welcome tax break introduced on 8th July 2020 by the Chancellor Rishi Sunak.
Anyone buying a main property with a value for up to £500,000 will pay no stamp duty before 31st March 2021. Properties that are over £500,000 will only have to pay the tax that is over the initial amount.
If for example you were looking at buying a property (main home) for £850,000, the stamp duty on this property would amount to £17,500.
The aim of this tax break is for buyers to reinvest the money saved on improvements that can be made to the property and for furniture.
