Emerald City Homes

Post Completion – Developer

Our clients are highly successful and knowledgeable Developers, based in the affluent area of Surrey. They had purchased a property and contacted I4B to see if they were eligible for any reliefs.

The property had been purchased for £652,000 and they had paid £42,160 in Stamp Duty Land Tax.

Upon review, the skilful team were able to assess that the Dwelling was unhabitable, and so was eligible for reliefs. It was classed as non-residential, as it was a neglected building without flooring, central heating and even gas and heating supplies had been removed.

As the team had done a thorough examination of all the documents, HMRC refunded the client £20,060!

I would definitely recommend the team at Innovation 4 Business. Initially we dealt with Alex who was knowledgeable and helpful and made the process easy to understand. He was able to clearly explain what was required and provided a hit list of documentation to get things started. Since then, the team (Bakhtawar and Amy) have been excellent at providing regular updates on each case. They have also been excellent at making regular contact to follow up on outstanding items, which is always helpful when it’s so easy to get busy/distracted with other matters. I will be looking to use I4B for further related works re: SDLT refunds!
