Stamp Duty (Covid-19)

21 May 2020

As a temporary response to the impact of the Coronavius outbreak, HM Revenue & Customs are no longer accepting paper stock transfer forms and payment by cheque.

Instead, and as a temporary measure, the Stamp Duty must be paid by electronic means (CHAPS, BACS, or Faster Payment) and then you email them the details of the transaction.

Further details can be found on their website at
