Taxes are usually the biggest amount payable when buying a property in the UK normally with a mortgage loan and are also payable on stock and share transfers. There are many myths surrounding these duties, so we’ve published the latest information.
Stamp Duty Rates are set by the government, then payable to HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) on completion of a property transaction. The current percentages range from 0% (up to £125,000) to 12% for values over £1.5 million.
From 22nd November 2017, first-time buyers pay no stamp duty on the first £300,000 for property purchases up to £500,000. You pay no tax up to £300,000 and 5% on the portion from £300,001 to £500,000. If the property exceeds £500,000, then the standard rates apply.
The chart below shows the various thresholds and the amount in percentage terms that are currently payable through 2019 and until further notice.
