For the UK to keep up with changing economic conditions, the Chancellor should consider more frequent business rates revaluations and a broader look at real estate tax.

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) has consistently been perceived by the industry as the biggest tax barrier to business growth, and reductions at the top-end would be widely welcomed. This would free-up liquidity in the market, which will ultimately increase housing transactions and sales. We may even find that it raises more money.

Additionally, I am looking out for the Chancellor’s approach to simplifying the planning process. He could reinvigorate UK house-building by freeing up more areas of green belt land. Investing in planning departments to try and get closer to house-building targets is of great importance. We are currently well short of targets and this is contributing to higher house prices in certain area

A stable and competitive tax system is vital. There have been too many changes in recent years and these have negatively affected the market. We need a period of tax stability.

Additionally, an exclusion of the 3% second home surcharge from affordable private rental housing would encourage the provision of affordable housing for lower paid workers.
