Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is a tax paid when you buy property or land over a certain value in England and Northern Ireland. The Land and Buildings Transaction Tax replaced Stamp Duty in Scotland on April 1, 2015 and is calculated at a different rate. Please note that Stamp Duty Land Tax is also calculated differently in Wales.
In England for residential properties costing up to £250,000, no stamp duty will be payable. For second homes such as rental or holiday homes, a higher rate of SDLT is applicable. To ensure this is taken into account, please tick the box on the right-hand side of the calculator below.
For first time buyers, no stamp duty will be payable for residential properties costing up to £425,000. First time buyers purchasing property for more than £625,000 will not be entitled to any relief and will pay the SDLT at the normal rates.
