From 1 August 2022, we’re making it quicker and easier to complete the signing process in the Digital Duties Form. 

Currently, if changes are made to a Digital Duties Form, any parties who have already signed are required to re-sign. 

From 1 August, a new process will reduce the need for forms to be re-signed.

Changes that do not require re-signing by all parties

The addition or deletion of a concession or exemption will no longer require all parties to re-sign the form – only the transferee. 

All other parties will not be required to re-sign the form if:

  • a transferor or transferee representative edits a form and only changes data pertaining to the party they represent, and
  • the data changed is not in one of the sections listed below.

Changes that still require all parties to re-sign

All parties will still need to re-sign the form if edits are made to certain data.

In the Transferor details and the Transferee details sections, this means changes to:

  • Individual/individual other 
    • Full name
    • Remaining on title
  • Corporations/Organisations/Associations  
    • Name
    • ACN/ARBN/ABN
    • Remaining on title

All parties will also need to re-sign the form if changes are made to the data in these sections:

  • Change in beneficial ownership
  • Property Details
  • Transaction Details
  • Sale of Business/Goods
  • Water Rights
  • Off the Plan
  • Sub-sale, nomination and options (purchaser name)

How changing a form affects its signed status

Once any parties affected by the data change have resigned their form, their forms are deemed to be signed as at the date they re-signed. All other parties remain as signed as at the date they originally signed. 

If a Digital Duties Form has been unsigned, but there is no change to the data previously entered, the form will automatically revert back to being signed.
