State Based Property Stamp Duty
Every state of Australia has its own rate of stamp duty it charges for the transfer of property. Stamp Duty rates will also vary within and between states for owner occupier, investor as individual or as interposed entity like a trust.
Please ensure the appropriate individual (s) or interposed entities are named on the purchase contract, as any change in ownership after settlement will incur extra stamp duty
