Includes new September 2022 stamp duty rates.
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 the shortcode [stamp_duty_calculator] where you want it to appear.
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.
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”.
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.
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.
