Changes to Electric Vehicle (EV) stamp duty exemption


As part of the NSW Government’s Zero and Low Emissions Vehicle reform package customers purchasing an eligible electric vehicle sold for a value of $78,000 (inclusive of GST) or less from 1 September 2021 were able to claim back stamp duty fees via a portal accessible through Revenue NSW websites.

From 15 August 2022, the refund process has been automated. When the vehicle is registered or the ownership is transferred, the vehicle owner no longer has to pay stamp duty fees.

What if the EV vehicle I purchase is second-hand?

When a second-hand eligible EV is purchased, the stamp duty exemption will be automatically applied when the registration is transferred.
More information regarding these changes including EV eligibility can be found on the NSW Government website.
