In the aftermath of yesterday's 'Scrumpy' Budget were some announcements that have implications for Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) – software developers in England & Wales may want to check out the links in this HMRC circular, sent out at 9:00 this morning. However how is the exemption for first time buyers is going to be policed? And how does a solicitor know that the buyer is telling the truth and does indeed qualify for the exemption?
