The income for HM Treasury from residential stamp duty receipts fell by nearly £1 billion in 2018 compared to 2017. It is estimated £8.454 billion was collected in 2018, a fall of £926 million compared to £9.471 billion in 2017.
20% of the fall is due to the devolution of the tax income to the Welsh Government. On 1st April 2018, Land Transaction Tax (LTT) replaced Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) in Wales. Since April it is estimated the Welsh Revenue Authority has collected £177.9 million, from 48,140 property transactions.
Across England, the revenue from the 3% Higher Rate of Additional Dwellings tax (HRAD) fell by 16.6%, while the number of properties purchased eligible to pay the HRAD fell by 8.7%.
Nearly half a million (247,400) first-time buyers have benefitted from the introduction of stamp duty relief on the 22nd November 2017, the estimated cost to the Treasury £570 million.
