Do not rely solely on our information about transfer duty or other government concessions as it is always changing and this information cannot fit every situation or cover every bonus/concession scheme offered from time to time. Use these pages as a base and always contact the Revenue N.S.W. before paying stamp duty to ensure that you are paying the correct transfer duty, and your eligibility for any concessions, schemes or bonuses on offer (whether with Revenue N.S.W. or other departments).
