I believe that prices are now at a reasonable level and I would now like to buy some agricultural land. I would like some advice on the likely taxes I may have to pay. I bought 10 acres of land several years ago and I paid very high stamp duty at a rate of 9 per cent, has this changed? Are there any other taxes I should be aware of, eg Capital Gains Tax?
