Calculate Your Stamp Duty

Standard Stamp Duty Tax Rates

Brackets Rate
£0-£125,000 0%
£125,001 – £250k 2%
£250,001 – £925k 5%
£925,001 – £1.5m 10%
£1.5m+ 12%

So, if you bought a property for £300,000 you would you pay:

  • No stamp duty on the first £125,000 = £0

  • Then 2% on the next £125,000 = £2500

  • 5% on the remaining £50,000 = £2500

So the total Stamp Duty to Pay will be £5000.
