Stamp Duty Calculator - How much is stamp duty?

Tax is payable when you purchase a property above a certain value. The amounts can be quite significant and you will have to factor this into your budget when considering how much deposit you need to buy a house.

The actual name of the tax and the rates applied depend on where you are buying in the UK, whether you are a first time buyer, and if not how many properties you currently own.

  • In England and Northern Ireland it’s called Stamp Duty Land Tax and is payable for purchases above £125,000, though currently first time buyers are exempt for properties up to £300,000
  • From 1st April 2018 Wales gained control of her own rates, called the Land Transaction Tax, which applies to properties over £180,000
  • In Scotland the Land & Buildings Transaction Tax applies to properties over £145,000, or £175,000 for first time buyers from the 30th June 2018
  • All regions impose a 3% surcharge for additional properties such as second homes or buy to let.
