5. NSW Stamp Duty Exemption:
You may be asked to provide a declaration about your eligibility to claim the NSW Stamp Duty Exemption. The NSW Government amended the Duties Act 1997 (NSW) (the NSW Duties Act) to provide a stamp duty exemption for eligible small businesses on certain insurance products taken out on or after 1 January 2018.
If you are considered a small business, you will not be required to be stamp duty on:
- Commercial vehicle insurance – for a motor vehicle used primarily for business purposes;
- Commercial aviation insurance – for an aircraft that is used primarily for business purposes;
- Occupational indemnity insurance – insurance covering liability arising out of the provision by a person of professional services or other services (other than medical indemnity cover within the meaning of the Medical Indemnity Act 2002 (Cth)); and
- Product and public liability insurance – insurance covering liability for personal injury or property damage occurring in connection with a business or arising out of the products or services of a business.
The above list may be modified from time to time, you should check Revenue NSW’s website for an updated list of eligible insurance products.
To obtain the benefit of the exemption you must be an eligible small business. In summary, you are a small business if you are an individual, partnership, company or trust that:
- is carrying on a business, and
- the business has an aggregated turnover* of less than $2 million. * Aggregated turnover is your annual turnover plus the annual turnovers of any business entities that are your affiliates or are connected with you.
If you are unsure whether the definition of small business applies to you for the purposes of determining your eligibility for the stamp duty exemption or to view the most up to date listing of insurance products that are eligible for the tax relief, visit Revenue NSW’s website for more information or obtain qualified tax advice.
Aon is not able to provide tax advice, such as whether you are eligible for the stamp duty exemption.
If you believe you are eligible, you must provide an acceptable form of small business declaration to your insurer or your broker on behalf of the insurer by following the instructions provided to you from time to time.
It is your responsibility as the insured to determine your eligibility for the exemption.
Your insurer will rely on this declaration in applying the stamp duty exemption for small businesses on relevant insurance products in NSW. If you claim the small business exemption and are not entitled to it, you may be required by the insurer to pay an amount equal to the duty, together with any interest or penalty tax payable.
The insurer may recover this amount as a debt if the amount is not paid. You may also be liable to penalties under relevant laws. Neither Aon nor your insurer is responsible or liable for incorrect or dishonest declarations.
A new declaration is required at each renewal period to satisfy legislative requirements.
