When do I have to pay for Stamp Duty or Capital Gains?

Stamp Duty - Buyers

In Queensland, stamp duty – or transfer duty – is charged on transfers of residential land and is payable by a purchaser.

There is a regulated “general rate” of stamp duty which is payable when purchasing particular properties.

There are exceptions to the general rule, including the first home concession, the home concession and the first home vacant land concession.

Should the concessions not apply to you, and stamp duty is payable, it will be included during the process and we will lodge it on your behalf. Click here to access a Stamp Duty calculator.

Capital Gains Tax - Sellers

If you sell a capital asset, such as real estate, you usually make a capital gain or a capital loss. This is the difference between what it cost you to acquire the asset and what you receive when you dispose of it.

Generally speaking, there are exceptions to CGT, for example, where a Seller is disposing of their primary place of residence.
