How to use our Stamp Duty Calculator

When buying a property, it’s important to factor other costs outside of saving for a deposit, and stamp duty is one of the biggest upfront costs you’ll come across.

Stamp Duty payments are also dependent on which state you live in and will change based on the factors you enter in the calculator. To calculate what stamp duty you’ll need to pay for the property or any grants you may be eligible for, you’ll need to know:

  • State / Territory of property
  • Value of property
  • Total income of all purchasers
  • Property type
  • First home buyer vs existing buyer
  • Established home vs new home vs land
  • How many children will occupy the property
  • If you are an eligible pensioner

Why use a stamp duty calculator?

Stamp duty is a charge home buyers must pay which is applied by each state government in Australia. It is simply for the transfer of land or property, and will vary depending on the purpose and location of the property, for example if it is an investment property or if you’ll be living in it.

This calculator is useful to calculate how much stamp duty you will need to pay, based on the value of your property, location and other factors.

The general rule is: the pricier the property, the higher the stamp duty is likely to be, so it’s good to have an understanding on what costs you’ll be up for to make sure you can afford it on top of your deposit and other potential fees and charges.
