answer text <p>The Scottish Government’s decision to pre-announce the rates and thresholds for the land and buildings transactions tax (LBTT) led to changes in the timing of some transactions in Scotland. Specifically, some higher value transactions were brought forward into 2014-15, while some lower value transactions were delayed into 2015-16.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>In their March 2015 ‘Devolved taxes forecast’ publication, the OBR estimated that <em>“This increases UK SDLT receipts under the old system by £11 million in 2014-15 and reduces the LBTT forecast by £20 million in 2015-16”</em>. The treatment of these policy ‘spillover’ effects was considered by the Smith Commission and is now being discussed by the UK Government and Scottish Government as part of the wider fiscal framework discussions.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>The overall cost of housing benefit is dependent on a number of factors such as, household and individual circumstances in regards to employment and household income, inflation and rents. The Government does not expect a large impact on rent levels in Scotland and the UK from this policy, and any impact would be dampened in the short term due to other policy decisions. Therefore the government does not anticipate changes to the overall cost of Housing Benefit as a result.</p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>HM Treasury expects a minimal impact on the supply of property in the private rented sector in Scotland and the UK from changes to restrict tax relief on finance costs. Fewer than 1 in 5 landlords are expected to pay more tax as a result of this measure and it will be introduced gradually from April 2017 over 4 years to give landlords time to adjust. The Budget also announced increased Rent a Room relief, which can help to increase levels of private rented accommodation.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The Government is taking significant steps to support housing supply with housing starts at a 7 year high.
