Temporary Welsh increase to nil rate band of LTT for main residences only

The Welsh Government has announced a temporary increase to the nil rate band of Land Transaction Tax (LTT) to £250,00 for main residence property transactions from 27th July 2020 until 31st March 2021.

The tax paid for higher rate residential or non-residential transactions are unchanged.

There will still be additional rates to pay for landlords on investment property below the £250,00 threshold and unlike England no benefit will be derived from this announcement to encourage landlord purchases.

The new temporary and higher rates can be seen in the tables below:

The portion up to and including £250,000 0%
The portion over £250,000 up to and including £400,000 5%
The portion over £400,000 up to and including £750,000 7.5%
