Pay duty

Pay transfer duty or apply for a payment arrangement.
Last updated:

The person liable to duty is responsible for lodging and paying.  Estimate your duty liability.

See information about lodging duty transactions for assessment or reassessment.

Generally, you must pay duty within:

  • one month after a duties assessment notice is issued or
  • 12 months after the date a transaction is entered into if it relates to land or mining tenements or
  • three years after the date of a transaction if it is a subdivision or issue of title agreement.

A certificate of duty will only be issued after duty has been paid. The certificate of duty is required to register certain documents, such as the transfer of land.

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

How to pay

Payments by credit card or BPay may take up to 3 business days to process which will affect when the certificate of duty is available. Transactions will be endorsed up to one business day after the payment has cleared.
