With the stamp duty holiday due to end 31st March there is a lot of speculation regarding what may be announced over the next few weeks
The chancellor is due to deliver his budget on Wednesday 3rd March. It may be that no announcement is made until this. However, there are a number of options available to him.
Firstly he may just allow the stamp duty holiday to end as planned. This could cause some pressure in with ongoing sales that aren’t able to complete by 31st March due to unforeseen last minute legal issues.
He may choose to extend the stamp duty holiday by another few weeks and months. This may just ‘kick the can down the road’ and cause similar problems to those described above in a few weeks time.
Many commentators are suggesting a tapered return of stamp duty over a number of months in order to soften the impact of its return on progressing sales.

Following the recent announcement of a national lockdown across the UK, at Aldreds we understand this may be a challenging time for families, as you try to juggle work with home school learning. With this in mind, we thought we would share a few handy hints and tips, as you prepare to assist with your child’s education.
Where possible, provide your child with a clear space to work, free from any possible distractions.
Ensure your child has the necessary equipment required for school tasks. Where equipment or devices are not available at home; liaise with your child’s school to see what help can be provided.
Promote a consistent routine; logging on at the same time each day to learn and sitting in the same space to complete work every day helps children to established a disciplined mindset.
Provide positive feedback to your child for each small achievement; encouragement can motivate your child to succeed when they feel deflated.
Regular breaks away from the screen are beneficial for your child…and you! Schedule breaks and engage in something you enjoy doing together.
Stay in touch with your child’s school. Schools welcome parental engagement, especially positive ones! Also, email your child’s school if you have any concerns; teachers want your children to succeed!
Begin and end the day by checking in;
‘What classes do you have today?’
‘What can I do to help?’
‘What did you discover today?’
‘What could we do to make tomorrow even better?’
Be your child’s superhero! Children follow by example. Your child will observe your working practice and will follow your lead. Rules and goal setting for the day will help to set high expectations.
Breathe….it will all be ok. Enjoy your time together!
