Stamp Duty Calculator

If you buy a property or a piece of land over a certain value in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, then you have to Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT). The current SDLT threshold is £125,000 for residential properties or land with full planning permission and £150,000 for non-residential land and properties.

You pay must pay the Stamp Duty tax if any of the following apply:


  • You buy a freehold property
  • You buy a new or existing leasehold property
  • You buy a property through a shared ownership scheme
  • You are transferred land or property in exchange for payment e.g. you take on a mortgage or buy a share in a house
  • You pay Stamp Duty on increasing portions of the property price above £125,000



How much you pay

Property or lease premium or transfer value

SDLT rate

Up to £125,000 (excluding purchases below £40,000) 


The next £125,000 (the portion from £125,001 to £250,000)     


The next £675,000 (the portion from £250,001 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%

For Example:

If you buy a house for £275,000, the Stamp Duty you owe is calculated as follows:

0% on the first £125,000 =          £0
2% on the next £125,000 = £2,500
5% on the final £25,000 = £1,250
Total SDLT payable =  £3,750
