The Deal Advisory Tax (Stamp Duty) team is a national, market-leading, team that assists clients with all stamp duty aspects of transactions.

Whilst we are a team of tax professionals, we are part of the wider Deals, Tax and Legal (DTL) team and we work closely with our Deals colleagues in the Transaction Services and M&A teams in relation to our M&A transactional work. We also work closely with our colleagues in Corporate Tax and Law, also part of the wider DTL team.

The team regularly provides stamp duty assistance in relation to the biggest transactions in the Australian market. The team’s clients include large corporates, private equity investors, superannuation funds and infrastructure and property companies.
