Thursday’s HMRC sales data pulled
The government's official statistics on property sales in the UK have been withdrawn from publication because they appear to be wrong. The figures are published each month by HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) for sales worth more than £40,000. HMRC said that revisions to the previous months' figures, going back to March this year, had cast doubt on their accuracy. Figures for July were due to come out on Thursday, but have been postponed.
