What duties must be paid when buying or selling a commercial property?

If you are acquiring a commercial property, the purchase may be subject to VAT charges. We are able to advise on whether or not a particular transaction falls within the scope of VAT, as well as the following regional levies:

  • Stamp Duty Land Tax in England
  • Land Transaction Tax in Wales

In both buying and selling, exemptions and tax relief measures are available in a number of instances, depending on the specific circumstances surrounding the transaction. To find out if any of these applies to your case, it is best to speak to your accountant or specialist tax advisor.
