This new guide provides a unique and comprehensive exposition of stamp duties law in each Australian state and territory.
The guide aims to be a “one-stop” shop for stamp duty and Australia’s most comprehensive guide on the subject.
Covering not only transfer and conveyance duty, the guide also provides detailed commentary about trusts and partnerships, landholder duty, insurance duty, motor vehicle duty, other miscellaneous duties, concessions and exemptions, corporate reconstruction and consolidation relief, tax avoidance, and tax administration.
“The author has a clear, concise and easy to read style which is most welcome... The clever use of tables and summary tips with practical examples rather than dense text is a highlight. This is a unique book in content and presentation… Highly recommended for general practitioners or practitioners with extensive stamp duties practices.” – Review in the Law Institute of Victoria’s Law Institute Journal
