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

Section 9 - Land partly in Wales and partly in England

19.This section determines that land transactions involving the acquisition of a chargeable interest where the land is partly in Wales and partly in England, shall be treated as comprising two separate transactions, one relating to land in Wales and the other relating to land in England. The consideration for the transaction is to be apportioned on a just and reasonable basis between the Welsh transaction and the English transaction, with the Welsh transaction giving rise to a charge to LTT and the English transaction giving rise to a charge to SDLT under the Finance Act 2003. This section also provides that there is a requirement for WRA to publish guidance on land transactions where the land is partly in Wales and partly in England, including guidance about identifying the location of the border between Wales and England.
