Stamp Duty | From 1 July 2021

Stamp duty rates have now changed from 1 July 2021 as the tax holiday introduced in June 2020 starts to be phased out.


Stamp duty holiday meant a saving of up to £15,000 for people buying homes and it certainly has done what it aimed to do - boosted the property market by helping buyers whose finances were affected by Covid.

How much do I have to pay now?

The next stage is 1st July to 30th September 2021, and the rates are as follows:

  • Up to £250,000 - no stamp duty

  • £250,001 to £925,000 – 5%

  • £925,001 to £1.5m – 10%

  • Above £1.5m – 12%

From 1 October 2021, rates are due to return to normal. That means the point you to start paying stamp duty will revert to £125,00:

  • Up to £125,000 - no stamp duty

  • From £125,001 to £250,000 – 2%

  • £250,001 to £925,000 – 5%

  • £925,001 to £1.5m – 10%

  • Above £1.5m – 12%

This means that from 1st October if you buy a property valued at £300,000, the stamp duty charge you will pay will be £5,000 which is calculated as follows:


0% on the first £125,000 = £0,

2% on the next £125,000 = £2,500,

5% on the final £50,000 = £2,500.
