How to pay stamp duty.
This is not changing. As before you will need to submit a stamp duty return and pay what you owe within 30 days of completing on the sale of your property.
You still have to submit a return even if you are not due to pay any stamp duty on the purchase price of your propery, unless the property costs less than £40,000.
It is your responsibility to ensure the the return is completed on time, but most people employ a solicitor or a conveyancer to complete the return for them.
On receipt of a valid stamp duty return, HMRC issues a certificate which allows you to register your title to the property at the Land Registry, or in Scotland at the Registers of Scotland.
