Land Transaction Tax (LTT), is a tax due on all residential property over a certain threshold in Wales. The current LTT threshold is £180,000 (if you do not own other property).
How much will I have to pay?If the property you are purchasing is your main residence and is below £180,000 you won’t need to pay any Land Transaction Tax. However, if it is over this, there are several rate bands. The tax is calculated on the part of the property purchase price falling within each band.
