Calculating how much stamp duty is payable on a property purchase has become a bit more complicated in recent years after the introduction of tiered rates of payment depending on the property price. Although this has stopped there being sudden jumps in stamp duty payable depending on the house price, which is a good thing, it has made things less simple!

So if you are wondering how much stamp duty is payable on a £600,000 property purchase then that is what we are here for!

If the property is your main residence or a first property purchase then the amount of stamp duty payable amounts to £17,500 (updated September 2022)
