Should stamp duty be scrapped?

Pressure is continuing to build for the scrapping of stamp duty, on this occasion The Society of Licensed Conveyancers (SLC) has called for the scrapping of Stamp Duty.

This follows in the footsteps of the Taxpayers’ Alliance who last month called for similar measures.

SLC says that the implementation of Stamp Duty, in particular since the 3% additional homes surcharge – has become  “ridiculously complicated”.
