Clear advice in a complex world

Rawlinson & Hunter LLP is a firm of Chartered Accountants headquartered in the City of London. For over 80 years, the Firm has provided outstanding accountancy, tax advisory and private client services, combining excellent technical skills with a uniquely personal approach. Our worldwide reputation has been built on our ability to cut through complexity and deliver the best practical solutions to our clients, exactly when they need them.


Stamp duty refunds

We provide expert advice and support to individuals and businesses purchasing residential property in England and Wales. We advise clients on the stamp duty liabilities that arise upon purchase, and how to mitigate these liabilities whilst ensuring full compliance with the tax rules.

For new clients, we specialise in critically examining their recent residential property purchases to establish whether they paid the correct amount of stamp duty under the four different charging regimes that apply to properties. Where we conclude that an incorrect amount was paid we then advise our clients on the actions that may be taken to remedy the position with HM Revenue & Customs, including securing the recovery of overpaid stamp duty within the short repayment window permitted by the law.

We only utilise government approved statutory tax rules that are contained within the tax legislation, so that our clients only pay the tax intended by Parliament.

Professional standards

Rawlinson & Hunter LLP has been a leading firm of Chartered Accountants for over 80 years, and now operates from 13 offices in 10 countries with over 50 partners and directors, over 400 staff and over 10,000 clients. Our aim is to provide a stamp duty service with high professional standards from our City of London offices, backed with comprehensive professional indemnity insurance. No other practice combines such a wide-ranging resource with a genuinely personal level of service.

Rawlinson & Hunter LLP is headquartered in the City of London and is regulated by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales.
