To avoid a tax default, penalty tax and interest, duty under the lease provisions must be paid within 30 days of a dutiable transaction.  

More about leases, grants and transfers

You can lodge a dutiable lease, transfer, assignment or surrender of lease by email or post. Do not lodge lease matters via Duties Online as all lease matters are dealt with by our Landholder Acquisition Branch.

Payments can be made by either EFT or cheque.
