Stamp Duty Calculator

Understanding how much you will pay in Stamp Duty is important as this cost  is separate to the deposit for the mortgage.

In England, a First Time Buyer, paying no more than £300,000 for a residential property will not pay any Stamp Duty. Between £300,000 and £500,000, First Time Buyers will pay stamp duty at 5% on the amount of the purchase price.

Each country in the UK has differing costs for stamp duty, depending on the purchase price and whether you are a First Time Buyer, Second Time Buyer or BTL (Buy to Let) Investor etc.

We have created our own calculator which will be able to demonstrate how much stamp duty you will pay, allowing you to factor this cost into the overall costs of buying a property.

29th October 2018: As announced in the 2018 Budget, First Time Buyers purchasing a Shared Ownership property will be exempt from Stamp Duty. 


The stamp duty calculator is designed to give you an idea of your stamp duty liability when buying a home in England, Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland. The stamp duty calculator should be used as a guide only and we cannot guarantee the accuracy of the results. 

The following government supplied calculators will be of assistance via the SDLT in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and LBTT in Scotland websites.
