Colliers International - South Australia Stamp Duty Reforms

August 2017

South Australia is heading towards becoming the most competitive tax jurisdiction for business and commercial property investment in Australia. Stamp duty is a barrier to investment in property, and has become a more significant one when there is a rapid increase in capital values. Last year the SA Government announced changes to parts of the stamp duty legislation with the aim to increase business investment and make SA more competitive. This plan sees stamp duty for certain asset classes cut in three parts with the abolishment of stamp by July 1 2018. The first cut to stamp duty was effective on 5 December 2015 with the second cut effective on 1 July 2017. As we see a lead up to the second cut we are exploring the impact of this time line and the effects this is having on investment in on the commercial property market.
