Duty Stamping of Trust Deeds
Patricia Holdings can stamp most Victorian and NSW trust deeds
All types of trust deeds (with the exception of Superannuation Trust Deeds) established in either NSW or Victoria need to be duty stamped upon execution. This can be done either directly by the relevant state revenue office or by an agent.
Patricia Holdings is a registered agent of the NSW Office of State Revenue (OSR) and Victorian State Revenue Office (SRO), allowing us to duty stamp most of your Victorian and NSW trust deeds. Our service extends not only to documents created by us but any Discretionary or Unit Trust Deeds you have with a NSW or Victorian jurisdiction.
Simply send your signed trust deeds and the completed order form to us and we will stamp your trust deed(s) and send them back to you via trackable express post. If your NSW trust deed has individual Trustees (non-corporate) we will also require certified copies of the Trustees identification. Victorian trust deeds and related documentation can be scanned and emailed to us as it is not a requirement of the SRO that we see the original deed. NSW trust deeds will need to be sent to our office as OSR require we view and physically stamp the originals.
How long does it take to have my trust deeds duty stamped?
If your trust deed was set up in NSW we can process the stamping within 2 business days and have your stamped deed sent back to you via express post. If your trust was set up in Victoria however, the Victorian SRO will not issue a certificate of duty until payment has been cleared which usually takes 3-5 business days. If stamping of your deed is urgent, please call us to discuss options.
What is included when Patricia Holdings duty stamps my trust deeds?
Patricia Holdings makes duty stamping your trust deeds easy. With Patricia, for NSW deeds you will receive a delivery by express post containing your original signed trust deeds back, with an official OSR stamp on the first page of each trust deed. For Victorian Deeds you will receive an official SRO digital certificate – indicating that they have been duty stamped. If the Victorian Deed was received into our office, we will also send back your signed trust deed via express post.
How much does it cost?
Patricia’s fee for duty stamping your trust deeds is a nominal fee to cover our costs of only $77 (inc GST). We charge $88 (inc GST) if your trust deed was not prepared by Patricia.
