Stamp duty issues for wholesale property funds paper


Wholesale property funds are a continuing growth area in Australia, targeted by both domestic and foreign investors. But fund managers are constrained in many ways by the different stamp duty treatment in various States. This paper considers relevant stamp duty issues for wholesale property funds, including:

  • who can invest, and who can’t
  • how can you solve the current problems for funds managers?
  • will the new ‘landholder’ model expand wholesale investment in Western Australia?
  • what is the Property Council of Australia’s uniform property trust model, and how would that help?
