Everything you need to know about stamp duty in NSW
When you’re preparing finances to buy property, make sure you’ve calculated how much you’ll need to pay in stamp duty and know when it’s payable.
Transfer duty or stamp duty as it’s more commonly known, is a tax or duty that must be paid when you acquire a property – even if you receive that property as a gift or if it is obtained through a company or trust.
The amount of stamp duty payable is based on the valuation of the property. Stamp duty is calculated on the contract sale price or the property’s current market value, whichever is higher.
