Is land tax the new stamp duty? Implications for trusts, foreign or foreign controlled landowners, property investors and property developers

The landscape of land tax is continuing to develop, with further changes to the way land tax surcharges operate, particularly in Queensland, New South Wales, Tasmania and Victoria, which require landowners to consider whether changes need to be made now. Meanwhile, NSW Treasury released a draft paper indicating a desire to move from a transaction based land tax system (ie duties) to a broad based annual land tax system, which could well include taxing the sacred family home and the family farm.

This webinar will explore the recent changes relating to land tax and land tax surcharges, including Queensland’s recently commenced land tax surcharge (together with accompanying ex gratia relief measures), recent experience in Victoria, requirements for discretionary trust deeds to be amended, the NSW build-to-rent scheme as well as contemplate what a new land-based tax system might look like and how a transition might be achieved.

This session is intended for a wide audience, but specifically:

  • Foreign or foreign controlled landowners with land in Queensland or Victoria needing exemptions from surcharge
  • Investors using discretionary trusts to hold land in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria or Tasmania
  • Property developers seeking exemptions or reductions from land tax and surcharges, including build-to-rent schemes
  • Advisers seeking the ideal structure to invest in land into the future
