Introducer Workflow: Guiding Your Client Through Stamp Duty Reclaims
navigating the claims journey: a step-by-step overview
Understanding & Identifying Claims:
Understand property condition issues that qualify for stamp duty reclaims.
Recognise the circumstances for a valid claim, such as if the client is a property investor who purchased within the last 4 years.
Review Client Properties:
Go over properties your clients have purchased in the last 4 years.
Shortlist Potential Claims:
Utilise our condition assessment tool (Link opens new tab) to determine which properties might have viable claims based on their condition severity.
Pitch to Your Client:
Craft a compelling proposition using our example emails and pitch ideas (Link opens new tab) .
Use the stamp duty cost calculator (Link opens new tab) to evaluate potential refunds and your prospective earnings.
If your client is on board, ask for case evidence.
Gathering evidence is often straightforward as clients typically have the required proofs readily available:
- Property surveys
- Photographic evidence
- Video recordings
- Contractor invoices and quotes
Uploading Evidence: Seamless Options for Clients
For a smooth and efficient process, we offer various methods for clients to send their evidence. Choose the one that best fits the nature and size of your files.
- Email: Suitable for text documents and smaller files. However, it might not be the best choice for larger files, especially video footage.
- WeTransfer: This is a free, easy-to-use service. Clients can register and upload documents, including larger files.
- Google Drive: We provide a shared Google Drive folder. Clients can easily drag and drop files into this space.
- Dropbox: Another efficient method. Clients can upload their files and simply share a link with us.
Our Aim: To provide a hassle-free experience for everyone. By offering multiple upload options, we hope to minimise back-and-forth communication and expedite the process.
Evaluating & Submitting a Case:
- Review & Forward Evidence: Examine the evidence provided by your client and forward it to us for assessment.
- Case Viability: We’ll review and share our insights on the case’s potential.
- Client Details: If the case is promising and the client is keen, gather the necessary client details using our PDF client questionaire.
- Prepare for Submission: Secure vital documents, typically held by the client’s conveyancing solicitor (SDLT5, TR1, and solicitors completion statement).
- Note: Securing these documents can be challenging, but using our template can empower you to communicate directly with the solicitor on your client’s behalf.
- Client Authorization: Obtain client’s signature allowing us to represent them with HMRC.
- Compile & Submit: We’ll organize all evidence into a comprehensive case file (usually 120-180 pages) and forward it to HMRC.
Post-submission to HMRC:
- Processing Time: Cases can take anywhere from 4 to 9 weeks to process.
- Estimated Refund & Fees: Upon submission, we’ll send your client an estimated breakdown of the expected refund and our fees.
- HMRC Payout: We instruct HMRC to pay the client directly and to notify us upon payment.
- Invoicing: Once informed of the HMRC payment, we’ll invoice the client. After which, you can invoice us for your fees.
- Payment to You: Choose between immediate payment upon fund receipt from the client or a consolidated monthly payment.
