It is expressly provided (unlike, generally, the situation for stamp duty) that it is the purchaser who must deliver the land-transaction return to HMRC and who must pay the SDLT due

The rule as to payment of the SDLT due is expanded to cover the situations of joint purchasers, or partners or trustees as purchasers – see from ¶50-400.
