Issued 25th Feb 2010
The Pre-Budget Report 2009 announced that regulations would be introduced to
extend the Tax Avoidance Disclosure Regime to require the disclosure of certain
Stamp Duty Land Tax concerning residential property with a value of at least £1
million. It also announced that users of all disclosed Stamp Duty Land Tax
schemes, for both commercial property and residential property schemes, will be
required to report the use of the scheme back to HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC).
Regulations implementing these changes will come into effect on 1 April
2010 and will be published when available on the Office of Public
