“Do not let the tax tail wag the commercial dog”

There has been mounting debate and speculation on what the Chancellor will commit to in his Spring Budget on 3rd March, with regard to the Stamp Duty Holiday and its potential extension from the cliff-edge date of 31st March. By the time the majority of you read this article, Mr Sunak’s Spring Budget will have been delivered, the immediate speculation will have abated and we will be able to gauge, with some certainty, the direction of travel in terms of SDLT, and perhaps wider capital taxation decisions affecting the property market, and other support measures and products in the wider mortgage markets.
