$75,000 to $540,000 $1,050 plus $3.50 for each $100, or part of $100, over $75,000
$540,000 to $1,000,000 $17,325 plus $4.50 for each $100, or part of $100, over $540,000

You sign an agreement to buy a house with a dutiable value of $365,400. The house will be an investment property, so you don’t qualify for a home concession.

As the value is within the $75,000 to $540,000 range, duty is assessed at $1,050 plus $3.50 for each $100, or part of $100, over $75,000.

This is how the duty is calculated:

$1,050 (for the first $75,000)

+ $10,164 ($3.50 for every $100 in $290,400, the balance above $75,000)

= $11,214 (the transfer duty payable)

Mortgage transfers

Mortgage duty was abolished in Queensland on 1 July 2008. However, transfer duty still applies to transfers of a mortgage. You pay $5 duty if you transfer, or agree to transfer, a mortgage solely over land in Queensland.
