The government have announced a cut to stamp duty tax as part of a wider set of economic measures aimed at easing inflation.

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is a tax that is charged when you purchase a property or land over a certain price in England and Northern Ireland.

The current threshold is £125,000 for residential properties and £150,000 for non-residential properties, but Mr Kwarteng has announced the government will double that to £250,000 from today (23 September).

For first-time buyers the threshold will also increase from £300,000 to £425,000. This means that anyone buying a property under £250,000 and any first-time buyers buying a property under £425,000 will not have to pay stamp duty tax.
