Stamp Duty Calculator

If you’re buying a property in England or Northern Ireland, you’ll have to pay Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) if what you’re buying is over a certain price.

Calculate your Stamp Duty

The amount of Stamp Duty that you owe on a property purchase will be calculated based on the purchase price. Property prices are divided into bands with each band attracting tax at a different rate. There are different rates for first-time buyers and second home owners.

Our Stamp Duty calculator lets you know the price you'll pay.
