Calculate your transfer duty

Private Property South Africa
Cathy Nolan

A property transfer duty is a tax payable by buyers of all types of properties and is over and above the selling price. Here’s how to work out how much you’ll need:

The Transfer Duty rates applicable have been left unchanged as per the 2019 Budget. The Transfer Duty rates below are applicable on property acquired on or after 1 March 2019.

There is no Transfer Duty on property under R900 000

From 900 001 to R1 250 000, transfer duty is calculated at 3% of the value above R900 001. (You don't pay transfer duty on the first R900 000)

From R 1 250 001 to R 1 750 000, Transfer Duty is calculated at 6% on the value above R 1 250 000.00 PLUS a flat rate of R 10 500

From R 1 750 001 to R 2 250 000 , Transfer Duty is calculated at 8% on the value above R 1 750 000, PLUS a flat rate of R 40 500.

From R 2 250 001 to R10 000 000, Transfer Duty is calculated at 11% of the value above R 2 250 000 PLUS R 80 500.

From R 10 000 001 and above, Transfer Duty is calculated at 13% of the value exceeding R10 000 000 Plus R933 000.

No transfer duty is payable if the transaction is subject to VAT.
