Guys is there any benefit purchasing a vehicle outside of NSW?
NSW transfer= 3% QLD = ?
Is there any draw backs tranfering a QLD vehicle into NSW ?
(Just for the record I have already planed a trip to QLD so the travelling expenses are not considered as an extra cost to the vehicle.)
I plan to buy a 4x4 for around 40-45K so even if there was a 1% saving this would be a bonus for extra bolt on`s ( don`t tell the missis )

Would think that with reregistration to NSW from QLD costs would negate the savings in stamp.

3% is really obcene - I nearly fell out of my tree when I bought my Forester 2nd hand $23 000 (in NSW), so you must be really bleep ! Be carefull about registering/insuring or having your driving licence etc under a different address to where you actually live. Insurance Co can get funny and Police can charge you with driving an 'unregisted' vehicle or driving without a valid licence. Wouldn't it be great if all of this was a National scheme?Colin - Subaru Forester

Craig,
Went through this myself some 3yrs ago - picked up brand new vehicle in Vic and then registered it in NSW (was working in Vic at time and got best deal there).

You obtain a permit to drive vehicle from one state to the other (about $80 then - effectively a temporary green slip). When I got to NSW the fun started - need to get a blue slip and then had to present a brand new vehicle to an RTA inspection station ( to check for re-birthing ) even though I had a receipt for the vehicle straight from the dealer. All up basically cost about $ 140 plus a couple of days of hassle and chasing around. Did save the difference in stamp duty though.

From personal experience keeping a vehicle registed interstate is frought with difficulty as the authorities will not usually post renewals to an interstate address (certainly for Qld).

At the time there was a benefit to me as duty was less if registering in NSW compared to Vic. However, in your case I think you need to check the implications out carefully before proceeding. Legally you are only allowed a relatively short time to transfer rego address if you move interstate ( had to do a bit of quick talking a few times myself a couple of times). Also down the track getting pink slips for rego if registered interstate can be a bit of a hassle (NSW requires one every 12 mths for vehicles over 2.0t) - I am not sure about QLD these days.

Incidentally, if you are associated with the forces, you are able to maintain rego legally in another state.

Best of luck - keep us informed.

Regards

Pete G

Think you will find that time frame for change of regisrtation is 3mths,as for dept of defence vehicle rego laws are the same ,3 mths time frame,unless" on course ", drivers licence can be kept in state of enlistment ,tagged " interstate address acceptable member of defence forces"
System is so as can get pro rata refund on vehicle rego and 3rd party insurance paid yearly, no such refund on drivers licence paid upto 5yrs in advance.
