On 21 July 2021 the Government published an Open Consultation on the Building Safety Levy, open until 15th October. This consultation sought views on the design and calculation of the proposed Building Safety Levy, through which it is proposed developers would make a contribution to remedy historical building safety defects. Please note that the proposals relate to England only.

With the assistance of AREF’s Residential Funds Working Group and Tax Committee, AREF submitted a response to the consultation. Within the response we have referred to the Residential Property Development Tax consultation; more details about RPDT can be found here.
