From 1 March 2019, the new time limit for filing an SDLT return and paying any tax due on the purchase of property will be 14 days, reduced from the previous 30 days. This means that if you are acquiring land or property, you need to have the funds available to pay any SDLT tax within the new timescale and have all the necessary information to enable you to file the return within the new timescale of 14 days.
