Property Update – December 2015

This month, we concentrated on the main highlights from Autumn Statement 2015 as they affect property, as well as a couple of interesting tribunal cases and HMRC announcements.

Overall the Autumn Statement was a mixed bag with buy to let landlords continuing to be under scrutiny of the Chancellor. Shorter payment deadlines were also announced for SDLT and capital gains tax on residential property.

There was some positive news for property developers, but with much of the detail yet to be published, the New Year will be a busy one responding to the various consultations.

In the meanwhile, we wish all of our readers a Merry Christmas and look forward to a prosperous 2016.
