Stamp Duty Calculator

How did we calculate stamp duty?

The Settle Easy stamp duty calculator calculates land transfer duty (stamp duty), based on where the property is located and what sort of purchaser you are. Different rates of duty and fees may apply for vacant land and you should contact the State Revenue Office in your state or territory for how those rates are calculated.

Budgeting for your property purchase

Almost as soon as you start looking closely at buying property, you’ll realise just how expensive home ownership is.

That’s why it’s so important to budget for all the different costs associated with your property purchase including:

  • Government (stamp duty)
  • Conveyancing
  • Bank costs.

Concessions and exemptions

Our conveyancing experts can answer all your conveyancing questions and we’ll ask about your individual circumstances to work out whether a stamp duty concession applies to your property purchase. Or, you might even catch a lucky break on stamp duty and receive a total exemption.
There’s no doubt that when it comes to understanding what conveyancing is all about there’s a lot to learn. And it pays to leave this to the experts who do this sort of work every day.
It’s our job to help you understand stamp duty concessions and exemptions and all conveyancing rules and regulations. We genuinely love nothing more than helping our customers understand how property law will affect them and streamlining the whole conveyancing process.
Your locally based property law professional will explain everything you need to know using simple language and we make ourselves available by phone and email 24/7 because we know our lives don’t fit neatly between the hours of nine to five.
