Reforms to the Taxation of UK Residential Property

The proposed new rules follow a number of changes to the way in which UK residential property is exposed to UK tax that have been introduced over the past few years, including the Annual Tax on Enveloped Dwellings (ATED) and the higher flat rate of Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) for corporates purchasing residential property.
