Press releases

Mixed reaction expected to residential property measures

Budget 2021

Padraic Whelan, Tax Partner, Deloitte, said:

The Minister has signalled in his speech the intention to extend the Stamp Duty Residential Development Refund Scheme. From a residential perspective, this extension is a welcome announcement.

A further welcome development has been the extension of the Help-to-Buy scheme, also announced in the Minister’s speech, and the allocation of funding for delivery of social & affordable housing in 2021 and beyond. However, the physical delivery of the latter targets will be challenging.

There was some expectation that a shared equity scheme in home ownership may have been considered, so there will be disappointment that this has not materialised.
