This first release of data provides some key statistics on the registration of users of the online system for Land Transaction Tax (LTT) in Wales, and provides some context around our future statistical approach, including a timetable for future WRA statistics.
1,229 registrations for LTT between February 2018 and 15 April 2018, of these 1,149 (93%) registrations were approved onto the WRA system. The number approved includes a small number of registrations awaiting approval due to WRA workflow management.
Registrations that weren’t approved were almost exclusively duplicate registrations.
Majority of registrations were in England (72% England, 27% Wales, and 2% another country).
Largest number of registrations was received the week of 19 to 25 February. Around 100 registrations were received on 20 February, the date registration formally opened. There were approximately 110 to 180 approved registrations per week following this initial surge; with most registrations happening on 28 March (53), 26 February (47), and 29 March (44). The 2 March dates listed are likely due to the April bank holiday at the end of that week.
