Stamp Duty Calculator
Stamp duty is a tax imposed on certain types of documents and acquisitions, such as title transfers that resume from the sale of real estate, automobiles or other personal property. Stamp duty is not levied by the Australian government, but by the states. The stamp duty is paid by either the purchaser or borrower. The money from stamp duty is used to pay for public safety, health and education.
Stamp duty varies from state to state and is charged at a concessional rate on residential or business property title transfers (if prerequisites such as property value, property type and occupancy requirements are met.) The stamp duty can increase the cost or purchasing a property. As such, it is imperative that borrowers calculate the cost of the stamp duty when they are looking for and determining how much they can spend on a new home.
The stamp duty calculator on this page will help you determine how much stamp duty will be owed for the purchase of your new house. To use the stamp duty calculator, first enter your details. Select your state or territory, the value of the property, and the loan amount. Then select whether the property is owner-occupied or an investment property. Finally, mark whether or not you are a first time homebuyer and click calculate stamp duty.
The calculator will then reveal the total cost of the stamp duty, broken down into categories. You will see the cost of the mortgage registration fee, the transfer fee, the stamp duty on the property, and the stamp duty on the loan.
Note: The results from this calculator should be used as an indication only. Results do not represent either quotes or pre-qualifications for a loan. It is advised that you consult your financial adviser before taking out a loan.
