Claritax Books are Independent publishers of UK tax books for accountants, tax advisers and other tax professionals and we are pleased that they have agreed to partner with the ICPA to offer all members 20% off a specially selected book each month.

April Book of the Month: Stamp Duty Land Tax



Our April “book of the month”, from specialist tax publishers Claritax Books, was described by a reviewer as the best available guide to SDLT for the general practitioner.

Few of us specialise in SDLT, but it is now a major source of government income – paid by our clients – so we ignore it at our peril. The newly published sixth edition of this book includes full details of relief for first-time buyers, relief for property funds, reduced time limits for both filing and payments, multiple dwellings relief, and extensive coverage of the definition of residential property.

The text is very clearly written, providing thorough coverage of the issues but at a level that is appropriate for the non-specialist. Separate chapters deal with SDLT basics, chargeable consideration, leases, partnerships, trusts, shared ownership, reliefs, avoidance, compliance, penalties.
