Stamp Duty (SDLT) Calculator

What is stamp duty?

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is a tax paid by the buyer of a UK residential property when the purchase price exceeds £125,000. The stamp duty rate ranges from 2% to 12% of the purchase price, depending upon the value of the property bought.

From 1 April 2016 anyone purchasing an ‘additional’ residential property will be charged a 3% surcharge on each of the threshold bands.

Corporate bodies purchasing residential property at more than £500,000 will pay 15% stamp duty. If you are buying to let, as a landlord, you will have to pay SDLT if the income from a short term property let (up to seven years), residential tenancy or lease is above the threshold.
