Important change from 1 July 2017
The digital duties form must be used for all contracts or agreements for land transfer duty in Victoria entered into on or after 1 July 2017.
This all-in-one digital form replaces the traditional, paper-based land transfer duty forms with a single, streamlined online process.
Our website contains comprehensive resources to help you complete a digital duties form for your transaction.
This paper-based PDF declaration is still available for a limited time if your contract or agreement was entered into before 1 July 2017. However, for your convenience we strongly encourage you to use to the digital duties form.
This declaration may be used to evidence the dutiable value of land for transfers involving associated persons (natural persons and companies), or gifts or fractional interests or nominal consideration. This form should be used only if you are unable to provide a letter of appraisal by a licensed real estate agent or a sworn valuation by a certified practising valuer who is a member of the Australian Property Institute (API) or from a member of the Real Estate Institute of Victoria (REIV) with sworn valuer accreditation.
Note: This form must be lodged electronically to the SRO. Paper-based submissions will be returned.
- Organisations must lodge this form via Duties Online
- Individuals must lodge this form via our public lodgement system
