Statutory Time Limits

Unless the legislation specifically provides for discretion, stamp duty time limits are mandatory. HMRC Stamp Taxes is unable to extend the statutory time limits. Examples are the 2 year limit for claiming repayments (Stamp Duties Management Act 1891/S10) and the 30 day period for giving notice of appeal against an assessment made under Stamp Act 1891/S12 (Stamp Act 1891/S13(2)).
