# How to calculate Stamp duty of North Territory in Australia?

Northern Territory Stamp Duty - General Rate Duty is calculated on the purchase price or unencumbered value of the dutiable property, whichever is the greater, as follows:

Where the dutiable value does not exceed \$525,000 in accordance with the follow formula:

D = (0.06571441 x V^2 ) + 15 * V

Where D = the duty payable in \$ and V = the dutiable value / 1000

• From 1 July 2017, where the dutiable value exceeds \$525,000, but is less than \$3 million - 4.95 per cent of that amount.
• From 1 July 2017, where the dutiable value is \$3 million or more - 5.75 per cent of that amount.
• From 1 July 2017, where the dutiable value is \$5 million or more - 5.95 per cent of that amount.

I want to know if I have \$500,001 amount then stamp duty is \$821 but how can I calculated stamp duty to get \$821?

I have take some reference from below site: http://www.homeloans.com.au/calculators/stamp-duty-calculator/

The formula is actually as follows:

(0.06571441 * V^2) + 15 * V, where V is the value divided by 1,000

which gives us AU\$ 23,929

You find the same value using the calculator you linked to if you select "Investment" instead of "Primary Residence" or uncheck "I am a first home buyer"

Edit:

I don't know how they determine the \$AU 821, it might be worth calling them. From looking up the First Home Owner Discount, it looks like no stamp duty may be due if you qualify for the discount:

From 1 September 2016, the Northern Territory Government introduced increased stamp duty assistance for first home buyers who purchase an established home in the Northern Territory up to the value of \$650 000.

The First Home Owner Discount (FHOD) is a full stamp duty concession on the initial \$500 000 value of the home, which equates to stamp duty savings of up to \$23 928.60.

For established homes valued at more than \$650 000, a stamp duty saving of \$10 000 is available until 31 December 2016.
