Stamp your trust deeds. Electronic SRO Certificate of Duty
Want Abbots to organise stamping for your Victorian trust deeds? Abbots is registered to use the Duties Online portal of the Victorian State Revenue Office (SRO). Stamp duty is a one-off payment to the state government on starting a trust registered in Victoria. It applies to both Discretionary Trusts, Hybrid and Unit Trusts. Abbots can arrange assessment and payment of your duty with the SRO.
We offer complementary stamping on all trusts orders through Abbots. This means we do not charge a service fee to stamp your Victorian trust deeds like most other providers do. We only charge the statutory amount of $200 provided they are stamped within 30 days. The stamping service includes:
Most types of trust deeds (except for SMSF Trust Deeds) need to be assessed by the relevant state revenue office upon the execution of the trust deed. Before stamping a trust deed you must ensure the Declaration of Trust adheres to the following:
Once your deeds are executed, simply send us a copy of your trust deed(s) within 30 days from the date of execution. Abbots will electronically lodge your trust information with the SRO and be issued a certificate of duty within 3-4 business days. In Victoria, the duties office will not issue the certificate until payment has cleared which may sometimes cause delays.
