You will need to go to a service centre or send an authorised

registered in the name of a corporation, the Representative's

Stamp duty charges:
Stamp duty is collected by Transport for NSW on behalf of Revenue
NSW 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 motor vehicle
registration duty calculator at revenue.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.
You must provide a current certificate of registration. If the
certificate of registration has been lost, a service centre can
