The fiscal impacts of a permanent stamp duty holiday

By Mark Arnold
Chief Executive Officer

The current stamp duty freeze has fuelled the housing market since the summer, driving economic benefit well beyond simply property transactions. As we look to support the economy over the coming months and years there are very strong arguments for making this change permanent, with the potential for the government to increase overall tax receipts as a result of doing so. 

We hope that you find the research of interest and a source of positivity at the end of what has been a very long year.

Read our report, showing a strong argument for extending the current stamp duty holiday.
