where inspections are done. Please call Service Now on 13 77 88

Stamp duty charges:
Stamp duty is collected by Roads and Maritime on behalf of the
Office of State Revenue when registration is issued to a different
person or corporation. Stamp duty is based on the market value of
the vehicle or the price you paid, whichever is greater. Stamp duty
is calculated at $3 per $100, or part of the vehicle's value.
For passenger vehicles valued over $45,000 with seating for up to 9
occupants, including: a sedan, station wagon, coupe, convertible,
four wheel drive vehicle with seats and windows, two wheel drive
panel van with seats and windows, three wheel car, forward control
passenger vehicle, small bus, motor home, or snow vehicle the rate
of stamp duty is $1,350 plus $5 per $100, or part, of the vehicle's
value over $45,000.
You can use this method to calculate the amount of stamp duty
payable for your vehicle, or you can use the Office of State
Revenue's stamp duty calculator at osr.nsw.gov.au
Except for heavy trailers over 4.5 tonnes GVM, if the vehicle you
have is currently registered interstate, or has expired interstate
registration, you must provide evidence that you have paid stamp
duty in the State in which the vehicle was previously registered.
