Calculation of stamp duty land tax: Rent: Rent thresholds: Example 4

A lease on a shop is granted for consideration consisting only of rent. The net present value of the rent payable is £165,350.

As the relevant rental value of the lease (£165,350) exceeds the non-residential threshold of £150,000, the 1% rate of tax applies to the excess over £150,000:

165,350 - 150,000 = 15,350

x 1% = £153.00 stamp duty land tax due, rounded down to the nearest pound.
