General description

From 1 April 2018, LTT replaced Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) on residential and non-residential property and land interests purchased in Wales. The tax rates and tax bands for LTT vary depending on the type of transaction.

Taxpayers must notify the WRA of all land transactions with a value above £40,000. There are also circumstances where certain lease transactions are not notifiable if they are less than 7 years in duration. When filing an LTT return, the organisation paying the return has 30 days after the effective date to submit and pay the return.

This dataset includes estimates of LTT notifiable residential transactions received by the WRA by the close of 21 June 2021.

Non-residential statistics cannot be reliably produced as identification of the correct built up area relies on the postcode to be provided for the property and land items as part of each transaction. As there is an inherent bias in the cases where missing or invalid postcodes are provided towards larger non-residential transactions, their results are not sufficiently complete or meaningful to be published.

The dataset includes a breakdown by:
- transaction type: residential (including sub-categories for main rate and higher rate transactions), non-residential
- built up area (BUA): All BUAs with a population of less than 2000 are grouped together due to the low numbers of transactions in these areas. If the BUA has sub-divisions (BUASDs), these are used instead when the population of the BUASD is greater than 2000. Where the postcode of the transaction is valid but there is no BUA associated with this postcode, these figures have been split into the sparsest and least sparse areas (using the National Statistics rural-urban classification). Note that the populations considered are from the results from the 2011 Census of Population.
- measure: number of transactions, tax due, value of property taxed, average tax due per transaction and average value of property taxed- effective year (financial)

There is a relatively small proportion of residential transactions where the postcode provided for the property and land items is missing or invalid. This means that a built up area cannot be allocated. For comparability, the built up area totals shown in this dataset therefore relate only to those transactions where the built up area is known, and for that reason will not match the Wales total shown in other datasets.

A full explanation of how this dataset should be interpreted, especially in the context of higher rates transactions, can be found here: https://gov.wales/welsh-revenue-authority-local-area-statistics-2020-2021-explained-html

Frequency of publication

Annual

Data reference periods

Data are shown by the financial year (April to March) in which the transaction was effective.

Users, uses and context

These statistics have been established to meet the immediate user requirement for data on the implementation of LTT, following the establishment of the WRA. Our key users are colleagues from the Welsh Treasury within the Welsh Government, the Office of Budget Responsibility, and other tax authorities in the UK.

Rounding applied

Values in this dataset are rounded to the nearest 10 transactions, nearest £0.1 million tax due, and nearest £1 million for the value of property taxed. Average tax due per transaction is shown to the nearest £10, whilst average value per transaction is shown to the nearest £1000.

Revisions information

Land Transaction Tax statistics are subject to revision. When filing an LTT return, the organisation paying the return has 30 days after the ‘effective date’ to submit and pay the return. The effective date is when the tax becomes liable to be paid, usually when a transaction is completed on a property.
This dataset (being annual figures) is unlikely to be affected by further transactions not submitted by June of the following year. However, values for existing transactions are subject to revisions for several years and may lead to some revisions when these data are next updated. In particular, this will be due to higher rate refunds. When a refund for higher rates residential LTT is claimed, the original transaction is amended to a main rate residential LTT transaction. The taxpayer has up to three years to sell their previous main residence and claim a refund.
