How much Stamp Duty? Find out in seconds with our handy calculator

Ocean estate agents

Stamp duty Land Tax Residential Rates have changed on purchases from 8 July 2020 to 31 March 2021, our calculator will be updated to reflect these changes as soon as possible. Here is an overview in the meantime.

If you purchase a residential property between 8 July 2020 to 31 March 2021, you only start to pay SDLT on the amount that you pay for the property above £500,000. These rates apply whether you are buying your first home or have owned property before.

You can use the table to work out the SDLT due

Property, lease, premium or transfer value / SDLT rate -
Up to £500,000  /  Zero
The next £425,000 (the portion from £500,001 to £925,000)  /  5%
The next £575,000 (the portion from £925,001 to £1.5 million)  / 10%
The remaining amount (the portion above £1.5 million) / 12%

The official bit...

Stamp duty land tax (or Land and Buildings Transaction Tax in Scotland) is a lump-sum tax that anyone buying a property or land costing more than a set amount has to pay. The tax payable varies based on the price of the property and the type.

You must pay stamp duty to the HMRC 30 days from the date of completion or you may risk a fine. Your solicitor or legal adviser should handle this for you to ensure you don't miss the deadline. Some buyers prefer to add on the SDLT amount to their mortgage loan. Please speak to your mortgage provider.

This calculator applies to residential transactions only. If all, or part, of your transaction is commercial, agricultural or non-residential then the rates will differ.

The Stamp Duty Indicator also presumes that none (or part) of the property qualifies as mixed-use for which the current SDLT would be up to 5%.

Please note, you cannot use the tool for residential properties with a chargeable consideration over £500,000 where the 15% rate of SDLT applies. You’ll need to perform a manual calculation instead, please consult your solicitor or tax consultant for further advice.
