South Australian Stamp Duty Relief for Commercial Property Transactions

The State Government brought forward the stamp duty concession reductions. For all commercial property contracts signed after 7 December 2015 the stamp duty would be reduced by one third. Further reductions of one third will take effect on the 1 st July 2017 and 1 July 2018. Thereafter there will be no stamp duty on the transfer of eligible commercial property.

 

 

 

GST - The  going concern exemption.

 

Presently if you buy a business or an occupied commercial property, and both the vendor and purchaser agreed and were both registered, there would be no GST payable. This not only has  the cashflow advantage but also there is no (state) stamp duty levied on the GST.

Tax Facts - Medicare Levy

The Medicare Levy is a tax Australian residents pay to cover health care charges. It is payable on taxable income, in addition to income tax. Individuals and families on higher incomes who do not have an appropriate level of private hospital cover may have to pay the Medicare levy surcharge.

For the 2014-15 and later income years, Medicare Levy is usually calculated at 2% of taxable income. A reduction in the rate is available for people on low incomes and an exemption is available for people in certain categories.

Medicare Levy Calculator is available on the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) web site to help you work out your obligation.
