Stamp Duty on Commercial Properties

On Thursday 17th March 2016, new SDLT (Stamp Duty Land Tax) rates were introduced for commercial properties.

Commercial Stamp Duty Rates

Property or lease premium or transfer value SDLT rate
Up to £150,000 Zero
The next £100,000 (the portion from £150,001 to £250,000) 2%
The remaining amount (the portion above £250,000) 5%


If you buy a commercial property for £280,000, the SDLT you owe is calculated as follows:

0% on the first £150,000 = £0
2% on the next £100,000 = £2,000
5% on the final £30,000 = £1,500
Total SDLT = £3,500

The Stamp Duty rates for residential properties are different.
