New land tax and stamp duty issues and planning techniques presentation


Following from the recent State and Territory Budgets, stamp duty is going... going... but definitely not gone. The abolition of a number of duties has lead to a sharper focus on real property. We can also see that the impact of CPT Custodian is becoming apparent in both a land tax and stamp duty context. Does it clear or muddy the waters? This presentation outlines:

  • signifi cant stamp duty/land tax outcomes from the 2006/7 State and Territory Budgets
  • practical application of the High Court decision in CPT Custodian and other recent changes
  • impact on the application of land rich and “look-through” duty
  • property and options: how options can be used in a development context
  • land tax - where to post the trust surcharge?
