    Residential Property Developer Tax

    Local authority housing companies and residential housing developers (‘LAHCs’) face a new tax from April 2022, when the Residential Property Developer Tax (‘RPDT’) is introduced. The draft legislation that makes it clear that RPDT could have a material effect on some local authority housing developments.

    We will be hosting an RPDT seminar with Azets on 16 November 2021. The seminar will explore the new tax and how it will affect LAHCs and local authority housing developments.

    RPDT will apply from April 2022 on the profits of residential property developers. It is designed to contribute to the government’s costs of dealing with unsafe cladding on leased residential buildings following the Grenfell disaster.

    The tax will apply to the profits from the development of residential properties, with some exceptions, including residential care homes, student accommodation, temporary sheltered accommodation, and hotels. The government plans to raise at least £2 billion from the tax over the next ten years.

    RPDT will be charged at 4% on profits exceeding the developer’s “allowance”, which was confirmed as £25m in the Chancellor’s Budget on 27 October. There are specific provisions to tax joint ventures and groups. Although local authorities themselves will be exempt, LAHCs are within the scope of the tax and could find themselves liable for the tax, especially if they are in a joint venture or group structure.

    RPDT Seminar
    RPDT might be a costly new liability for housing developments, and LAHCs must be fully aware of how they will be affected. Our online seminar on 16 November will explore in detail the effect the new tax might have on LAHCs, taking into account the legal and tax structures and the various exemptions.

    It will be a jointly presented seminar with Azets, who deliver accounting, tax, audit, business, and advisory services in the UK and internationally. PSTAX and Azets have been working together for several years providing corporation tax support to local authority trading and housing companies.

    The cost of a place is £180 plus VAT per delegate. Organisations booking three or more places will receive a 10% discount.
