Across the UK (with the exception of Scotland), Stamp Duty rates for a single home are based on a sliding scale, starting at 2% of the purchase price for properties that sell for more than £125,000, increasing to 12% for properties that sell for more than £1.5 million. Any properties bought after this first property will incur an additional 3% Stamp Duty tax rate for a property selling at any price starting at £40,000.
Properties in Scotland are subject to largely the same rates, but they are scaled to different property values, to be more in line with the property market in Scotland separate from the rest of the UK. In Scotland, Stamp Duty for a single property starts at 2% of a selling price of £145,000, with the highest rate being 12% of the selling price for properties worth more than £750,000.

You won’t find a better site on all aspects of paying tax when buying a property, be it for upsizing, downsizing or any other reason you may have. Tax changes often, and the changes often vary wildly in rates and eligible property values. Some announcements of tax changes also don’t come into effect until 12 months after the initial announcement is released, so it is essential that you remain well informed and up to date on tax developments. Both those that have already occurred, and those slated to come into effect in the near future.
