How much is Stamp Duty?
Stamp duty is a charge which is applied by state governments in Australia and is in relation to the transfer of land or property.
The State Government charges may vary depending on the purpose of the security purchased. For example the charges will differ if you buy an owner occupied property as a First Home Owner or as the one who has owned a property before.
Each state in Australia has its own unique scale of charges and we have all these available within our stamp duty calculator.

Stamp Duty for Investment Property
Government Duty Charges differ when purchasing an Investment Property compared to the Purchase of an Owner Occupied Home.
Some States have different scales that apply to the purchase of an Investment property, and generally may be more costly.
As an Australian Investor, particularly where you are looking at all States, the Duty payable may be a factor on where you purchase your Investment Property, and may influence your final decision.
Although there are tax deductions applicable to Duties paid over a period of time, paying less Stamp Duty may be of importance to you. Please consult with your Tax Accountant.
