Property Survey 2017

The results of this year's report show that in an uncertain political and economic climate, more support is needed at policy level to boost the UK's property and construction industry.

A number of key issues have developed over the past 12 months which are having a real impact on the growth of the industry. Uncertainty around the impacts of Brexit for instance, has caused many businesses to believe it will have a negative effect on their operations and are now holding off on investing while they wait for the UK government to reassure them before the UK formally leaves the EU.

The respondents to the report additionally identified the current UK tax system as a key area of concern. Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) has  consistently been perceived by the industry as the biggest tax barrier to business growth, while Capital Gains Tax and the current 45% rate on income tax are also seen as barriers to growth.

This year's Property and Construction report has collected the opinions of those working in the industry, identifying the key challenges and opportunities they face.

The results provide a unique snapshot into the sector’s conditions and identifies ways in which the government can provide the support it needs.
