Stamp Duty Rates

When you buy a property you may be required to pay stamp duty tax, depending on the value.  New stamp duty rates were introduced from December 2014.  Under the new rules buyers pay tax on amounts between bands, not on the full purchase price of a property.

The table below shows stamp duty rates for residential property purchased in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.  

Stamp duty rates for anyone purchasing an additional property will change after April 2016.  Additional property includes buy to let investments and second homes.
