Electronic conveyancing

The move to electronic conveyancing only, means:

Duties Online (DOL) allows registered users to electronically submit details of the most common types of property transfers and declarations of trust for assessment, all from the convenience of their office.

When the electronic transaction is finalised and paid or exempted, DOL will instantly transmit confirmation of the duty assessment to Land Use Victoria.

The confirmation details are stored in the Land Use Victoria database until the transfer of land is lodged for registration. The details are then used to confirm that the duty obligations have been met.

For declarations of trust, registered users can print a certificate directly from DOL as evidence that duty has been paid.

What is Duties Online?

Duties Online is a State Revenue Office system enabling registered users to:

  • calculate the duty payable for a land transfer or declaration of trust
  • complete a Digital Duties Form
  • apply for a refund of duty for an overpayment.

Register to use DOL

Any partners in a firm, corporation, company or society that is regularly engaged in property conveyancing can apply to use DOL.

You can apply for an account or you can have your transfers of land or trust declarations processed by one of our registered Duties Online users.
