Stamp duty land tax (SDLT) is changing in Wales. From April 2018, the tax regime and rates for land transactions, including residential and commercial sales and leases, will be run from Wales.

The Welsh government is consulting on its policy for the introduction of the new tax. Do you have criticisms of how the current SDLT system operates? Do you have ideas for reforms of this tax? Or are there practical steps in the administration of this tax which could be streamlined?

The Law Society is gathering views from members across England and Wales, and we want to hear from you. Please contact the Wales policy adviser Kay Powell ( for more details or to send in your views. The Welsh government consultation closes on 6 May.
