SearchFlow unveil new stamp duty calculator following Autumn Statement

SearchFlow has developed a stamp duty calculator for its website to simplify the costing process for lawyers and their clients.

The requirement for this comes as a result of the Chancellor’s announcement of a new sliding scale for stamp duty during his Autumn Statement earlier this month. SearchFlow moved quickly to develop a tool, accessible via its website, which instantly works out the amount of stamp duty owed for any property transaction.

“When the Chancellor made his announcement it was clear that the changes to Stamp Duty would impact lawyers,” explains SearchFlow’s managing director, John Pickford.

“So we’ve worked quickly to produce this calculator so that the transition to the new stamp duty calculation can be as seamless as possible for those in conveyancing. Having identified a need, we wanted to create an innovative simple solution, ultimately, to make lawyers’ lives easier. This fast-paced approach to innovation is something we intend to continue as we head into 2015.”

Initially available only on SearchFlow’s website, SearchFlow has confirmed that it will be making the tool available for legal professionals to download and implement on their own websites for no charge.

Recent commentators purport that the aspiring lawyer must be a triple threat, possessing knowledge of the law, coding expertise, and in-depth knowledge of legal technology. Yet, focusing on legal technology risks overlooking the need for skills that transcend latest fads. Legal technology is a means by which to handle data: to organise it, record it, extract it, analyse it, predict from it and leverage it. Quantitative and statistical literacy – the ability to understand, apply, visualise and infer from data – underpins technological literacy and yet receives very little attention from those who encourage innovation in the legal curriculum.
