This change means that from 27 July 2020:

  • the nil rate band for main rate transactions will increase from £180,000 to £250,000, all transactions that complete before then should use the current rates and bands
  • the new rates and bands will apply until 31 March 2021

The tax paid for higher rate residential or non-residential transactions are unchanged.
