Circumstances/Transactions:

Exemption or concession for young farmers purchasing farmland up to $750,000.

For contracts entered into on or after 1 July 2011, a one-off duty exemption/concession is available for young farmers aged below 35 who are buying their first farmland with a value up to $750,000. The date of the transfer determines the exemption available.

  • A full exemption from duty is available on farmland valued at no more than $300,000.
  • A partial exemption from duty is available on farmland valued at no more than $600,000. This is calculated by subtracting the duty payable on $300,000 from the duty payable on the value of the farmland (of $600,0000 or less).
  • A concession from duty is available for farmland valued between $600,000 and $750,000.
