Calculate out how much Stamp Duty to pay on shares and on some land transfers effective before December 2003

Stocks and shares

You can use the HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) stocks and shares calculator to work out how much Stamp Duty (SD) or Stamp Duty Reserve Tax (SDRT) is due on shares bought since 1 December 2001.

You’ll need to provide the purchase price of the shares and the date purchased, and to confirm whether you are buying the shares using a stock transfer form or electronically.

Land transfers 1 Dec 2001 to 30 Nov 2003

You can use the HMRC land and property calculator calculator to work out SD on transfers between 1 December 2001 and 30 November 2003.

You’ll need to have the following information to hand before you start:

  • the effective date of the purchase - this is usually the date of the contract
  • the total amount of any transactions that are linked to this transaction
  • for mixed use property, a breakdown of how much rent is for the residential element and how much is for the business element
  • whether or not your property qualifies for disadvantaged areas relief

Land transfers from 1 Dec 2003

If you’re dealing with a land transaction with an effective date on or after 1 December 2003 Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) applies. For more information see the guide on SDLT calculators.
