In transitioning to fully digital conveyancing, there is no longer a requirement to endorse instruments using a duty stamp.
Under Section 289A of the Duties Act 1997, the Chief Commissioner of State Revenue has approved the following procedures for endorsement of duty on an instrument processed through Electronic Duties Returns (EDR) and eDuties.
This page provides a general guide to our endorsement requirements.
An issued Duties Notice of Assessment will display a DAN.
The DAN must be written on the instrument or added to a fillable eDocument.
Enter the DAN in the ELNO workspace and verify the assessment with us.
The DAN will appear in the stamp duty field on the transfer.
Write the DAN on the first operative page of the document.
Any duplicates included in your assessment should be noted (keep a copy of the Duties Notice of Assessment with each duplicate)
Once all duty and interest (if applicable) has been paid, a Duties Notice of Assessment showing a Nil balance must be kept with each document including duplicate/s.
If processed by:
EDR - The Duties Notice of Assessment must be ordered using the re-issue option available through your Client Service Provider (CSP)
eDuties – we will issue a Duties Notice of Assessment displaying a Nil balance
Agent or settlement room - a Duties Notice of Assessment displaying a Nil balance must be requested from your agent
Yes. LRS will accept instruments endorsed by these methods.
The DAN must be clearly written on the instrument and lodged with the Duties Notice of Assessment.
