How the stamp duty calculator works

Our stamp duty calculator works by assessing what kind of property you own, then telling you the cost of the stamp duty you’ll have to pay based on your answer. It takes into account current tax laws and regulations to help you find out how much you might owe.

Why should I use it?

It’s all about budget, and knowing exactly how much your home purchase will cost. If you know that you’re going to save several thousand pounds on stamp duty, you’ll have capital available that you wouldn’t have before. You can then put that money to good use, paying off debts or investing in potentially profitable assets.

What is stamp duty? 

Stamp duty is a tax applied to the purchase of properties (or documents). The name comes from the old practice of placing a physical stamp onto a document to indicate that the stamp duty had been paid before the document in question became legally effective. More modern versions of the stamp duty no longer require an actual stamp.
