HOW TO CALCULATE STAMP DUTY?

Here is the stamp duty scale.

2022 STAMP DUTY SCALE 

Stamp duty Fee 1% : For First RM100,000

Stamp duty Fee 2% : RM100,001 To RM500,000

Stamp duty Fee 3% : RM500,001 and RM1,000,000

Stamp duty Fee 4% : >RM1,000,000

We will show how simple the calculation for easy understanding.

For example, if you’re buying a house amounting RM300,000. The total stamp duty is :-

Stamp duty Fee 1% : For First RM100,000 = RM1000.00

Stamp duty Fee 2% : RM100,001 To RM300,000 = RM4,000.00

Total stamp duty is RM5,000.00

In a Sale and Purchase Legal Fees Quotation, Stamp duty will be part of the quotation. Other items will be the Professional fees, SST and disbursement fees.

Based on this case the breakdown as below:

Professional Legal Fees: RM3000

Stamp Duty: RM5000 *

Disbursement fees: RM1500-RM2000

6% SST: RM180

Total amount: RM9680 – RM10,180

* If you’re first-time house buyer, you’ll get exemption of RM5000.

That’s a huge saving!
