Stamp Duty Rates Ireland

Stamp duty is calculated based on the consideration paid for certain transactions that are recorded in a document. Market value may apply in certain circumstances, for example, if there is a gift or unascertainable consideration.

Residential Property

Up to €1,000,000 1%

Excess over €1,000,000 2%


Non Residential Property - 2% flat rate


Stamp Duty that applies on mixed residential and non residential property

Where a transaction includes both residential and non residential property, the consideration must be apportioned between the residential and non-residential elements and the stamp duty is separately calculated on each separate element.

The residential property is not aggregated with the non-residential property so for residential property up to €1,000,000, the 1% rate will still apply.

Stamp duty on Shares

1% flat rate

Stamp Duty payable on a Lease

Stamp duty is payable on both the premium and rent payable on the creation of a lease.

The premium stamp duty rate is the rate for residential and non residential property.

The rent stamp duty rate is determined by the length (term) of the lease:

Lease for a term of up to 35 years or indefinite term 1% of average annual rent

Lease for a term exceeding 35 years but not exceeding 100 years 6% of average annual rent

Lease for a term exceeding 100 years 12% of average annual rent  

Certain residential leases are exempt.  

VAT and Stamp Duty

Stamp duty is assessed on the VAT exclusive consideration amount.
