Stamp Duty Calculator


Stamp duty, formally known as Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) in the UK, is a tax paid by buyers when purchasing property or land over a specific price threshold in England and Northern Ireland. Stamp duty applies to both freehold and leasehold properties, whether you’re buying outright or with a mortgage. The amount of stamp duty payable depends on the purchase price of the property and whether it’s your first home, as different stamp duty rates and reliefs apply. Scotland and Wales have their own versions of the tax, known as Land and Buildings Transaction Tax and Land Transaction Tax, respectively. 

Stamp Duty Rates
