Certain educational, religious and benevolent organisations can be exempted from paying stamp duty under the Queensland Duties Act 2001.
It is important to make contact with the Office of State Revenue well before you become engaged in property transfer dealings.
Each request for exemption is considered on its merits and the Commissioner will want to gather information about the applicant organisation and the purpose of the property transfer, the type of people who are involved (including their afflictions), and the type and nature of any work carried out.
Information about payroll tax and land tax can also be obtained from the Office of State Revenue.
The Exempt institutions and exempt charitable institutions page contains information specific to not-for-profit organisations.
