Property Hive Stamp Duty Calculator


This plugin, from the creators of Property Hive, allows you to quickly and easily add a stamp duty calculator to your website by simply adding a shortcode where you want it to appear.

Contains stamp duty calculators for England, Scotland, Wales and Commercial.

The supported shortcodes are as follows:


Users simply enter the purchase price then the stamp duty information is calculated instantly.


Note: This plugin is independent of Property Hive. You DO NOT need to be using Property Hive to download and use this plugin.


  • Once you’ve added the shortcode the stamp_duty calculator becomes avalaible for people to complete
  • Users are instantly shown the stamp duty owed once they’ve completed the form


Automatic installation

Automatic installation is the easiest option as WordPress handles the file transfers itself and you don’t need to leave your web browser. To do an automatic install of Property Hive, log in to your WordPress dashboard, navigate to the Plugins menu and click Add New.

In the search field type “Property Hive Stamp Duty Calculator” and click Search Plugins. Once you’ve found our plugin you can view details about it such as the point release, rating and description. Most importantly of course, you can install it by simply clicking “Install Now”.

Manual installation

The manual installation method involves downloading the plugin and uploading it to your webserver via your favourite FTP application. The WordPress codex contains instructions on how to do this here.


Updating should work like a charm; as always though, ensure you backup your site just in case.

The Shortcode

Simply add the shortcode [stamp_duty_calculator], [stamp_duty_calculator_scotland], [stamp_duty_calculator_wales] or [stamp_duty_calculator_commercial] where you want it to appear.

Could you please remove this option now since it’s November 2021: Property sale will complete on or between 1st of July and 30th of September 2021? I think it’s the first option on the form. Thanks a lot!

Easy plugin, however I must ask, why the “Calculate” button is visible, since it doesn’t do anything and the stamp duty total updates automatically?

Does not work. Installed and activated, but just shows the shortcode.
