There is a new, additional SDLT non-resident surcharge (NRS), applicable to non-resident persons (or non-resident entities) who acquire property in England and Northern Ireland from 1 April 2021. This new surcharge does not apply to Scotland and Wales, who have devolved powers, but it is likely that both Wales and Scotland will introduce similar measures in due course.
The government has announced a new lockdown for England lasting for one month until the 2 December 2020.
