STAMP DUTY CHANGES
1st April 2015
Changes were announced in the Autumn statement on November 25th 2015. The stamp duty changes in 2016 will see a SDLT rate increase for buy to let and second home purchases.
From 1st April 2016 a 3% surcharge has been applied to such purchases and a lower initial threshold of £40,000 has been introduced. Given that the vast majority of second home purchases fall outside this threshold, more transactions will now attract stamp duty than in previous years.
Anyone who purchases a property in addition to their main residence is liable for the surcharge even if the property is not let out.
With St Austell U12 boys desperate for a win they started the County U12 Boys tournament with a narrow 1-0 loss against eventual runners up Launceston, which would have been more if not for the heroics from Charlie Austin in goal and strong defending from Paul White, Seb Henderson, and Toby French. This was followed by another close but eventual loss to Penzance but in their next game against Bodmin with the team dominating the play but without much luck in front of goal the win eventually game with a very late goal from a penalty corner from Finn Nutbeem after great work from Callum Mercer. The next game saw another win for the boys with a goal from Oscar Acraman, from a superb lay off by Seth Harvey. The final game was a full blooded close encounter against eventual tournament winners Truro who scored two late goals to win the match. St Austell came 4th out of 6 teams with some great hockey from all the boys.
