Stamp duty


MPs debated an e-petition titled Extend the Stamp Duty Holiday for an additional six months after 31st March 2021, which has been signed by more than 140,000 members of the public, on Monday 1 February. There was unity among MPs in the debate in agreeing that stamp duty land tax (SDLT) needs a longer-term look, although this was not the specific subject of the debate. A number of MPs spoke in favour of a tapered winding down of the ‘holiday’.
