Residential Stamp Duty

Stamp Duty Land Tax Rates from December 4th 2014

Stamp Duty is charged at different rates depending on the portion of the purchase price that falls into each rate

Before 4 December 2014, Stamp Duty was charged as a single percentage of the property price. The 2014 reform means that the rates will now apply to that part of the price within each band. The residential Stamp Duty thresholds are as follows:

Final Purchase Price
£0 - £125,000
£125,001 - £250,000
£250,001 - £925,000
£925,001 - £1,500,000

A property with a purchase price of £550,000 will be £17,500 as opposed to £22,000, no stamp duty on the first £125,000, 2% on the next £125,000, 5% on remaining £300,000.
