What is land transaction tax in Wales?

Land transaction tax in Wales (previously known as welsh stamp duty) is payable when you buy land or property over a certain price. You can use the above land transaction tax calculator to work your liability using the current tax band rates.

The process for paying your land transaction tax is easy for buyers because your solicitor will normally do this for you. After completion the solicitor files a Land Transaction Tax (LTT) Form with the Welsh Revenue Authority online (although some can still submit a paper submission). Even if there is no LTT liability, the solicitor is still required to file a tax return.

Any land transaction tax payable must be paid within 30 days after the completion date. Although there is this 30 day payment term, if you are getting a mortgage, it is part of the mortgage lender's regulations that the solicitor is in funds with the land transaction tax before completion can take place. This means that you should be prepared to make payment to your solicitor for any land transaction tax liability the day before your completion date is set.
