What is a stamp duty valuation report?
Stamp duty is the tax payable upon transfer of ownership of an asset between two or more parties. A stamp duty valuation is required when transferring ownership between related parties or where the property is being transferred into a superannuation fund or various other trusts and legal entities.
The stamp duty tax payable is based on the valuation report provided by a registered valuer. Often a property is sold between related parties and is significantly below market value in which case you will need to have a stamp duty valuation to determine market value. These reports contain information on the physical attributes of the property, current market sales evidence and valuation rationale.
Why do I need a Stamp Duty Valuation and is it compulsory?
When there is a transfer of ownership in a property between related parties/entities the Office of State Revenue (OSR) will require a stamp valuation, which must be conducted by a registered property valuer. The amount of stamp duty payable depends on which state the property is located in and the valuation amount reported by the valuer.
