Many businesses are unaware of the significant expansion of the duty base in most States. We specialise in stamp duty management for mergers, acquisitions and restructures in all Australian jurisdictions. Furthermore, many restructures can attract exemptions from duty with appropriately drafted exemption applications and adherence to claw-back periods.
We offer strategies to best manage exposures and provide assistance in lodgement, reporting and payment of duties.
In particular, we specialise in:
• complex transaction advice;
• multi-jurisdictional acquisition management;
• corporate reconstruction exemption applications; and
• insurance duty.
The current general stamp duty rates for each Australian jurisdiction are available here.
