Stamp duty - hot topics arising from the introduction of the Victorian landholder duty regime presentation

Topics covered include:

  • anti-avoidance or blatant revenue raising?
  • public company takeovers and listed landholder duty
  • IPOs and listings duty on conversion from private to public
  • the nature of land holdings and how the base has been broadened
  • development agreements imposing duty by economic entitlement
  • duty on leases and the lack of certainty law versus practice and tenants’ fixtures.
