The following rates apply:

  • 7% on or after 1 July 2018; and

Using the Smokeball Stamp Duty Calculator

Smokeball’s Stamp Duty Calculator will check the following information from your matter to calculate Transfer Duty, concessions, AFAD and grants:

  • if an Unconditional Date has been entered, and if so it will use this date;
  • if no Unconditional Date is entered, it will use the Contract Date;
  • if no dates are selected, it will assume today’s date;
  • the entered dutiable value;
  • the Concession Type selected;
  • the Foreign Interest Fraction and Value for the FPD entered; and
  • if the Grant Type selected is First Home Owner Grant.

    If the Dutiable Value for Foreign Purchaser Duty is different, this can be entered in the Value for FPD field, and the Foreign Purchaser Duty will be calculated using this amount instead.
