When to pay

Show more

Generally, you must pay duty within the later of:

  • one month after a duties assessment notice is issued
  • 12 months of the date that a transaction is entered into if it relates to land or mining tenements that will be registered at Landgate or the Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety
  • three years of the date of a transaction if it is a subdivision or issue of title agreement (e.g. settlement of the lot is conditional upon titles being issued).

Regardless of the due date for payment, duty must be paid for a certificate of duty to be issued. The certificate of duty is required to register certain documents at Landgate and the Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety, such as when transferring land.

Late payment penalty tax will apply if the required duty is not paid by the due date.
