HMRC's published Stamp Tax Statistics include breakdowns of the amount of stamp duty land tax (SDLT) collected at each SDLT rate. These can be found at the following address (Table 3.1):

In 2012-13, a total of £4.04 billion of SDLT was collected from residential property transactions where the consideration was £2 million or less.

These published statistics do not provide such estimates for earlier years as there was no SDLT rate threshold at £2 million. For the same reason, the statistics do not provide estimates for non-residential property transactions

However, historic estimates of the amount of SDLT revenue collected from property transactions where the consideration was £2 million or less can be found in the following table. This includes both residential and non- residential property transactions.
