Stamp duty calculator

Calculate how much Stamp Duty Land Tax you will need to pay when buying a home in England


Residential property SDLT rates if you’ve bought a home before

This is a government tax paid on homes costing £125,001 or more when you buy a property in England. Use the above calculator if you are moving home and the new property will be your only property.

Stamp Duty Land Tax is charged at different rates depending on the portion of the purchase price that falls into each rate band.

Current bandings if you are moving home and the new property will be your only property:

Purchase price of property Rate of SDLT (percentage of the total purchase price)
£0 - £125,000 0%
£125,001 - £250,000 2%
£250,001 - £925,000 5%
£925,001 - £1.5 million 10%
Over £1.5 million 12%

Your solicitor will calculate the payment due and organise the payment for you.

Buy to let or second home/property stamp duty

An extra 3% is payable for buy to let or second home/property stamp duty and you should use HM Revenue and Customs’ (HMRC) Stamp Duty Land Tax calculator to work out how much tax you’ll pay. 

Your solicitor and/or qualified accountant can provide detailed stamp duty advice for differing or complex circumstances. 

First time buyers 

There are different rules if you’re buying your first home and the purchase price is £500,000 or less. First time buyers pay 0% up to £300,000. Between £300,000-500,000 you will pay 5% and over £500,000 you will pay using the same system as before and those who’ve bought a home before.

Please visit HM Revenues & Customs website for further details.
