Welsh housebuilder Llanmoor Homes has welcomed the announcement by George Osbourne at the recent autumn statement that there would be significant changes to the stamp duty tax regime.
George Osbourne revealed that under the new regime, stamp duty rates will be graduated in a similar way to income tax rates. The new rates will only apply to that proportion of the property price that falls within each banding, rather than on the whole house price. There will no longer be the huge jumps in stamp duty liability between house price bands.
Under the new regime, no tax will be paid on the first £125,000 of a property, followed by 2% on the portion up to £250,000, 5% on the portion between £250,000 and £925,000, 10% up to £1.5 million and 12% on everything over that.

Welsh house builder Llanmoor Homes has recently donated high-quality topsoil to Rogerstone Rugby Club to support the clubs much-needed renovation of their pitch. Llanmoor recently arranged for 10 twenty tonne loads of topsoil to be transported from their nearby Bethesda Field development to the club.
Rogerstone RFC was founded in 1973 by former pupils of Bassaleg Grammar School but was disbanded in 1996 due to a number of lead players leaving the club to play professional rugby. The club was then reformed in 2005 in consequence to an increase of housing developments in the Rogerstone area which saw demand rise for the rugby club to be re-established.
