The NSW government recently introduced vendor duty and changes to the land tax regime. This paper looks at the potential impact of these and other State taxes on investing in property directly or through investment vehicles. It looks at:
- the structural issues
- issues with property trusts
- investing through companies
- the stamp duty and land tax changes in the NSW mini budget
- how the taxes can affect the parties that are involved in common real property based investment structures.
