Land Transaction Tax (LTT), Wales 

LTT is the Welsh equivalent of Stamp Duty, and is the tax charged by the Government in Wales when you buy a home.

What is LTT?

Land Transaction Tax (LTT) is the tax charged by the Government in Wales when you buy a home of more than £180,000.

Why do we have to pay it?

When you buy a property the change in land ownership has to be legally registered at the Land Registry. The Welsh Revenue Authority (WRA) are responsible for collecting Land Transaction Tax and will issue a certificate on receipt of the LTT payment due on the purchase of the property.

The transfer of funds to pay the LTT will be managed for you by your solicitor.
