Stamp Duty Calculator FAQs

How much is Stamp duty? How is it calculated?
Stamp duty on real estate purchases, can also be known as Transfer of Land duty, and how much you pay is dependent on the state in which you buy the property, and of course, the value of the property. In Victoria, for property sales today, the rate of duty is charged on a sliding scale, from 1.4% of the purchase price for properties valued at $25,000 or less, to a capped rate of 5.5% for properties valued at more than $960,0001. Please note also that there may a range of exemptions and concessions you might be entitled depending on the nature of the transaction, the use of the property and/or your personal circumstances. These may alter the amount of stamp duty you are required to pay. These also vary from state to state so ensure you check with your state’s revenue office.
