CQS (CPMS) Stamp Duty Land Tax Policy

Updated: 2024-02-12
Product Details

The recent update to the CQS Core Practice Management Standards (CPMS) requires CQS firms to have a policy in place in relation to Stamp Duty Land Tax (s5.15).

Policy documents can be time-consuming and difficult to prepare without a Policy Template as a starting point.

Lexsure’s COMPLETIONmonitor team have drafted a set of policy templates designed to make it simpler for conveyancing firms to meet their compliance obligations.

The Stamp Duty Land Tax Policy Template includes reference to:

  • SDLT Calculations
  • Pre-exchange Checking
  • Post-completion Checking
  • Auditing SDLT calculation and advice

...as well as other formalities and general obligations as required under 5.15 of the CPMS.
