Recently, we assisted our client, a niche developer, with several refund claims. As a result of our assistance and applying the correct reliefs, the developer received refunds from HMRC totalling £298,836.

Our Client’s Journey

Our client, Mark Allison from Sigma Homes came to us for assistance with sourcing potential SDLT refunds for their recent completions.

Sigma Homes operate in the south east of England building thoughtfully designed residences, which fuse local architectural vernacular with contemporary design and specification. The sites we reviewed for potential overpaid Stamp Duty Land Tax had been purchased in early 2021.

On these sites, our client demolished the existing buildings and built a total of 50 beautiful residential dwellings. We were able to review their portfolio and apply the correct reliefs and legislation to obtain a refund for them directly from HMRC.

Our Solution

We’ve handled two refund claims for this client, and both were successful. The client had specific timeframes in which to source the refund claims, and our extensive expertise within the industry meant we completed the claims on time.

When asked about our service, Mark Allison said:

“In each case the claims were handled professionally & swiftly and communication throughout the process was first class.

If I am honest, I was initially a tad sceptical that they could achieve the level of refunds suggested and, in the timeframes, projected. However, I am delighted to say that Innovation 4 Business achieved exactly what they set out to do and I could not be happier with the service we received.” Find out how we helped an established agent save over £7,000 on a property worth over £230,000.
