    How is stamp duty calculated on a £700,000 home in 2019?

    How much stamp duty you'll pay on a £700,000 home will depend on a few things:

    1. Where in the UK you’re buying: England & Northern Ireland, Scotland, or Wales
    2. Whether you’re a first time buyer
    3. If you’re buying an additional property (for example, to let out or use as a holiday home)

    England & Northern Ireland SDLT (stamp duty) Rates

    Stamp Duty Land Tax (most people just call it ‘stamp duty’) is calculated in ‘bands’, which means you pay different rates on different ‘portions’ of the £700,000 property price.

    Property priceStamp Duty Rate
    £0–£125,0000%
    £125,001 – £250,0002%
    £250,001 – £925,0005%
    £925,001 – £1,500,00010%
    £1,500,000+12%

    Here’s an example for a property worth £800,000:

    1. You'll pay 0% on the first £125,000 = £0
    2. Then 2% on the next £125,000 = £2,500
    3. Finally, 5% on the last £400,000 = £20,000

    Total stamp duty = £22,500

    Scotland stamp duty rates (LBTT rate)

    The equivalent of stamp duty in Scotland is the Land and Buildings Transaction Tax, or LBTT. It’s calculated in ‘bands’, which means you pay different rates on different ‘portions’ of the property price.
