For a Purchase Price of £559,950 the Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) due to be paid is £2,998 (an effective percentage of 0.54%), giving a total cost of £562,948.
This calculation assumes that the property is a Residential purchase that will be your sole residence and will attract the standard rate of SDLT. If this purchase is for a second home or other use then you may be required to pay the higher rate of SDLT. Please see the UK Government SDLT website for further information.
