Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) Calculator


Moving home is said to be one of the most traumatic experiences of our lives, along with marriage, divorce and unexpected pregnancy. As if relocating didn’t carry enough of a burden, the government also asks for Stamp Duty as part of the process, although it has never explained why. However, some things don’t change, so we are here to help, with our simple residential Stamp Duty Calculator.

Our calculator is simple to use – just key in the price of either your main or an additional property and you will know the properties stamp duty cost in seconds. Including a full breakdown based on price band.

SDLT Calculator

Stamp Duty is the tax charged by the government when you buy a home for more than £125,000.

If you’re buying a home that costs over £125,000, you have to pay Stamp Duty Land Tax on the property, except in Scotland where stamp duty no longer applies. Instead you’ll now pay Land and Buildings Transaction Tax when you buy a property.
This tax applies to both freehold and leasehold properties – whether you’re buying outright or with a mortgage.

A reform of residential property Stamp Duty announced by the chancellor in his 2014 Autumn Statement means that rates will now only apply to that part of the property price that falls within each band.

How much is Stamp Duty?

You pay 0% for the first £125,000, 2% on the portion up to £250,000, 5% up to £925,000, 10% up to £1.5m and 12% on anything above that.
