Share Stamp Duty Calculator

A quick and easy way to calculate the cost of Stamp Duty when purchasing shares. The figures provided by this calculator are for illustrative purposes only. If you buy stocks and shares for £1,000 or less you don't normally have to pay any Stamp Duty. You also don't have to tell HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) about the transaction. 

Calculations based upon the current understanding of HMRC practices and the values shown are dependent upon individual circumstances.

If you buy stocks and shares for more than £1,000 you have to pay Stamp Duty. The amount of Stamp Duty you pay is based on the 'consideration' you give for the stocks or shares. The consideration can be: cash; other stocks and shares; debt, which is usually related to the loan stock. You pay Stamp Duty at the rate of 0.5% of the value of the consideration, rounded up to the nearest £5, on each document to be stamped.
