Duties Fact Sheet - Business Acquisitions

Fact sheet
Transfer duty may be imposed when you acquire a business in Western Australia.

Under the Duties Act, transfer duty is imposed on dutiable transactions relating to dutiable property which includes a Western Australian business asset.

Certain transactions relating to business acquisitions may therefore give rise to a transfer duty liability if there is a dutiable transaction over business assets.

See information about dutiable transactions involving business licences.
