We have gained our clients over £12million in the last 12 months on overpaid Stamp Duty.
I only contacted Cornerstone aer I had bought a mixed use property. They reacted swily, requested informaon and processed it at speed. The SDLT return was submied within the 14 days at a level of only just over 50% of that which my solicitor, who had recommended taking specialist advice, was intending to submit absent such advice. The service was friendly and efficient.
We approached Nita Patel for some advice about our individual circumstances regarding purchase of a new property. Nita was very prompt in all her responses. She was paent when we asked many quesons and reexplained her advice in a way that was easy to understand. 100% recommend her services!
I contacted Cornerstone for advise aer reading an arcle they had wrien regarding how oen SDLT overpayments occur. They confirmed I had paid too much and gave me instrucons on how I could get this redressed.
More and more articles are appearing in the press reporting the complexities of SDLT and the frequency of incorrect payments being made.
“Homebuyers may be owed up to £2 billion in tax because the government’s online calculator is getting its sums wrong. The tool, provided by HMRC, fails to to factor in stamp duty discounts worth thousands of pounds.”
“Solicitors complained they frequently used the calculator because the taxman was treating them like accountants, relying on expertise they did not have. They write to HMRC for guidance but we’re finding a long turnaround time, often 28 days.”
“The software on the HMRC website reportedly does not take account of factors such as farmland or a ‘granny annexe’ which can lead to discounts in stamp duty. The problem has arisen because the calculator does not distinguish between homes and mixed-used properties.”
