3/9 Navigating Stamp Duty Concessions. Your Next Financial Move.
Welcome back to our ongoing series, “Understanding Your ADF Housing Entitlements.” We hope you’ve been finding our insights valuable as we navigate through the world of financial opportunities. Today, we’re excited to delve into a topic that’s both significant and often overlooked – Stamp Duty Concessions.
Demystifying Stamp Duty
Stamp duty, a state government tax, is levied upon property transactions on the day the title changes hands. The way it’s calculated depends on the nature of the property you’re purchasing. If you’re acquiring a house and land package, the stamp duty is applied to the land price – a smart way to keep costs in check. For existing homes or properties purchased off the plan, stamp duty is usually calculated as a percentage of the full purchase price.
