Land Transaction Tax and Anti-avoidance of Devolved Taxes (Wales) Act 2017

Section 15 - Options and rights of pre-emption

27.The treatment of options and rights of pre-emption (i.e. the rights of first refusal) are set out in this section. The acquisition of an option binding the grantor to enter into a land transaction, or right of pre-emption preventing the grantor from entering into a land transaction constitutes a land transaction which is distinct from any land transaction that results from the exercise of the option or right. As such, that acquisition may be chargeable to LTT (in addition to any subsequent land transaction resulting from the exercise of the right).
