 Recorded Webinar: Understanding Stamp Duty and Land Tax Liability on Common Property Transactions


Date: Wednesday 23rd September 2020
Approximate Length: 1 Hour

The imposition of stamp duty and land tax on a property transaction can result in a significant payment. Understanding what transactions are dutiable is the first step in determining the most beneficial form of transaction for your client. This session will look at the tax and duty liability arising from a number of more common transactions, including:

  • The conversion of holding from company share to strata title – what liability is triggered and how?
  • How to avoid double duty on changing the purchasing entity under “nominee” clauses
  • Optimal structuring of related party transactions, particularly when the same party is both transferor and transferee
  • Foreign purchasers’ stamp duty surcharge and absentee tax – when do they apply and are there any exemptions?
  • Land tax and stamp duty implications for property held in a discretionary trust, issues where a trust beneficiary is a foreign person
  • Intergenerational family farm transfers – structuring for optimal tax and stamp duty
