Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
Hello, I am one of the experts on Just Answer and pleased to be able to help you with your question.
Stamp duty has been abolished, powers delegated to regional parliaments and assemblies and renamed. In what pert of the UK is the relevant property and why do you think any duty payable?
Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) would be the relevant impost. Is the property you inherited in Poland residential?
There would be no UK SDLT were you to acquire a property in Poland.
Unfortunately as you own a dwelling anywhere else in the world when you buy your UK house you will pay the normal SDLT and also the 3% surcharge. If you dispose of the duplicate property within three years you can apply to the Stamp Office for a refund of the surcharge.
UK Government web sites confuse me too at times and I am an accountant!
Thank you for your support.
