Stamp Duty Rates Have Changed

The amount of stamp duty tax you’ll need to pay depends on many factors, including how much you pay for the property, the location of the property, whether you have a UK passport, when you buy and whether you’re a first-time buyer. It also depends on whether you’re buying a main home or an investment property and if you buy in a company name. 

From 1st July 2021 until 30th September 2021, there is a staggered return to previous stamp duty rates. During this time, many buyers of a main home in England or Northern Ireland won’t pay any stamp duty on the first £250,000 of the purchase price.

You must complete a property purchase by 30th September 2021 to benefit from the staggered extension of the stamp duty holiday rates.

Stamp duty rates are due to return to the levels which were in place prior to 8th July, 2020 as from the 1st October. You can check the rates using the HMRC website https://www.gov.uk/stamp-duty-land-tax .
