Its a big enough worry on your new purchase, no matter what it might be!!, on the second hand market, with out having to worry about what tax your up for!! Transfer Tax is just a revenue area and nothing else as far as i'm concerned.


Cheers Axle.

Axle, I quite agree. Wasnt Stamp Duty one of the taxes that the State Govt were supposed to phase out in return for GST?
Taking their time about it. The NSW mob are apparently just a bunch of crooks anyway judging by this weeks press....oldbaz.

Yeah well what else would or could it be? Revenue is what pays the bills, health, education, public transport, roads, water, electricity, sewereage, Police and so on. Where have you been for the past 107 years? As for the Govt. removing it or any other tax - dream on - it just isn't going to happen.

Hey DIO … pretty obvious you don’t live on Qld.

Health …. Ever heard of Bundaberg, Townsville or Emerald?
Education …. kids 20 years ago did better than those in 2006 survey!
Public transport …. you are kidding, aren’t you?
Roads …. should be vehicle registration (Qld has worst roads in Australia)
Water ….. that’s a separate bill on your rates (but we don’t have any anyway)
Electricity …. You pay for that separately (should be private sector)
Sewerage ….. same as water (rates)
Police …. do a GREAT job (then the court system kicks ‘em in the teeth)

In WA Stamp Duty on caravans and campers was abolished last year by Eric the Ripper.

A van salesman told me last week at a show that the only state charging stamp duty for new rego or transfer of ownership was NSW. Trailers that is (any type - vans incl.) ... and up to about 4500kg in SA - not sure of limits elsewhere.

To register a new$ 60000 caravan in NSW is $2200 approx. In Victoria it is 45 and $9 of that is for the plate. They class cavavans as trailers up to 4.5 tonnes.

I just had a second hand Landcruiser Troopy (camper conversion), that I bought in NSW, registered in ACT. Had to pay $402 duty (3 percent of the purchase price).

Saved $300 a year in rego costs by taking the bullbar/winch off, and taking it over a weigh bridge, to have the rego department drop the rego cost down into the next lower tare weight bracket (was 2587kg on the previous rego papers, they were going to charge rego at that weight, dropped it down below 2504kg to 2480kg for a cheaper annual rego cost).
