Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT)

Stamp duty is a tax on the property and land transactions in the UK.  There are different percentage rates of tax to be paid to HMRC depending on the value of the property being purchased and different rates for residential property, commercial property, freehold and leasehold. 


Stamp Duty Land Tax Rates (effective from 4 December 2014)


Previously, SDLT (Stamp Duty Land Tax Rates) was charged at a single rate for the entire price of a property. 


From 4 December, SDLT charges at increasing rates for each portion of the price.

2% on the next £125,000

5% on the next £675,000
