Duties

Please take our survey

Duty in the ACT is payable on the transfer, agreement for sale, declaration of trust over, or grant, of certain property. 

Documents submitted for stamp duty assessments in relation to these matters will be assessed for duty and a notice of assessment emailed to the lodging party within 5 working days of receiving a complete submission. 

Lodgements which include an application for a concession (Home Buyer, Pensioner Duty, Over 60s Home Bonus) or a Deferral of Duty, will be assessed for duty and a notice of assessment emailed to the lodging party within 10 working days of receiving a complete submission.

Once the duty liability has been paid, the documents can be collected from the Dickson Access Canberra Shopfront (see Contact us for opening hours). 

No advice can be given at this shopfront as it is only a drop off and pick up location for ACT Revenue submissions and related correspondence. 

For registered practitioners and/or their agents, information regarding eLodge and Easy Lodge is available at eLodge and Easy Lodge.

The rate of duty payable will depend on the type of property and its value.
