Understanding Stamp Duty

What is a Stamp Duty?

Stamp duty is a tax you pay when you purchase a property anywhere in Australia and its territories. Another term for it is “land transfer duty”. Now, stamp duty will vary by state. Each state has additional questions or details which you need to fill out.

Why Do We Need To Pay Stamp Duty?

The Australian Government imposes a tax on all properties sold within the country. In order to process all necessary documents and make the whole process legal you’ll need to pay the tax due.

Failure to pay the set stamp duty will result in penalties and charges. These late payment penalties are usually calculated by percentage. The government will determine how much you need to pay based on the unpaid tax.

How is Stamp Duty Calculated?

It is calculated based on the price paid on purchase and type of property sold. The more expensive a property is, the higher the stamp duty will be. There are discounts and deductions given by state based on the following criteria:

  • Whether you are purchasing the property as a residence or as an investment
  • Are you purchasing it as a first time buyer?

Disclaimer: Our stamp duty calculator does not include fees and charges. It only takes into account the property details. Any additional costs incurred such as hiring a real estate agent is not added into the computation.

The result of the computation is meant to be a guide. For more accurate calculation, please contact one of our mortgage brokers here at Excellence Finance. Our mortgage broker will be able to give you a more detailed analysis that takes into account all other additional costs. It will also consider your buying situation, loan options, and price changes due to the economy’s volatility.
