LAND AND BUILDINGS TRANSACTION TAX – WHERE ARE WE NOW?

A SEMINAR FOR CONVEYANCERS AND OTHER LAND PROFESSIONALS

**SERIES BEGINS NOVEMBER**


​Scotland’s toddler of a tax, LBTT, is getting older and maturing into its important role in the fiscal family. Meanwhile, its bouncing baby brother, Additional Dwelling Supplement, continues to gurgle and splutter and throw up the problems familiar to all who have to deal with youngsters. Solicitors and others need to give guidance as the tax develops and this seminar is intended to provide the counselling needed. It will focus on a number of issues which continue to produce problems and have already changed the landscape since the introduction of the tax. These will include:-

  • Additional Dwelling Supplement - recent changes, continued problems and possible opportunities;
  • First time buyers – a limited new relief
  • Three-year lease reviews – client and professional obligations;
  • The penalty regime – increasing the bite of the tax – first case law guidance
  • Mixed transactions – more residential than you might think?

 
In addition, following the UK Budget but in advance of its Scottish equivalent, the seminar will mention the increasing divergence between LBTT and SDLT; and examine whether SDLT changes may be replicated for Scotland.

The new tax has increased the demands on those whose primary work is in conveyancing and other land services. This seminar is intended to assist those who have no wish to become tax specialists, but need to know how to deal with situations that have become more complex and expensive for their clients than they might wish.  A must for all those involved in real estate.

As a feature of this seminar, the speaker will attempt to address some points and questions put in advance by those attending.

The speaker is Alan Barr, Partner at Brodies LLP and Honorary Fellow in the School of Law at the University of Edinburgh, who has been heavily involved in LBTT since its inception (but it is not his fault). (He was also heavily involved in the introduction of its immediate predecessor, stamp duty land tax, in 2003. He claims that he was less involved in the introduction of SDLT’s fore-runner, stamp duty, in 1694.)
