Stamp duty

Stamp duty is a tax payable by a buyer or borrower to the Treasurer of the States on the passing of a purchase contract or on the creation of a mortgage. This tax has been increased disproportionately in the last 10 years and it is now likely to be your biggest single expense when buying a property.

The tax is calculated on a sliding scale based on the sale price or the amount borrowed. The more expensive the property, the greater percentage of that price is due in tax.

Below are some examples of what you could expect to pay:


It is important to remember that the amount you may pay can vary each year as determined by the States of Jersey. For more accurate stamp duty calculation, please contact Viberts.
