Up-to-date land registry stamp duty rates

Unless the home you’re buying is less than £125,000, you’ll need to pay Stamp Duty. Beyond that figure, you work out how much Stamp Duty Land Tax (to give it its full name) in increments.

This table represents the UK Government’s current scale of Stamp Duty implementation:

Property ValueSDLT (%)
<= £125,000 0%
>£125,000 but <£250,000 2%
>£250,000 but <£925,000 5%
>£925,000 but < £1.5M10%
>£1.5M 12%

So, let’s say you buy your home for £415,000. This is what you’d pay:

  • £0-£125,0000 @ 0% = £0;
  • £125,001 to £250,000 @ 2% = £2,500;
  • £250,001 to £415,000 (164,999) @ 5% = £8,250;
  • so your total stamp duty would be (£0 + £2,500 + £8,250) = £10,750.

To work out how much you may have to pay (and save oodles of time), you can just use our Stamp Duty Calculator.
