Finance (No. 2) Bill — Clause 87 — Temporary Period For Reduced Rates On Residential Property — 20 Apr 2021 at 17:00

The majority of MPs voted for lower taxes on purchasing second homes and buy-to-let property.

MPs were considering the Finance (No. 2) Bill.[1][2][3]

The amendment rejected in this vote was:

  • amendment 81, in page 49, leave out lines 14 to 27.

The rejected amendment was accompanied by the following explanatory statement from its proposer:

  • This amendment would mean that the Stamp Duty Land Tax (Temporary Relief) Act 2020 no longer applies to additional dwellings.

The amendment would have omitted subsection (3) which set a new series of rates of Stamp Duty Land Tax applying to additional dwellings such as second homes and buy-to-let properties. Subsection 3 would have set Stamp Duty Land Tax for such properties at 3% for £0-£250k, rather than 2% for £0-£125k and 3% for £125k-£250k.[3][4]
