MVR duty calculator
You can use this calculator to estimate how much stamp duty you need to pay when you buy a vehicle.
Stamp duty is calculated on the dutiable value of the vehicle.
In the case of an "arm's length" transaction, the dutiable value is the sale price of the vehicle including accessories.
An arm's length transaction is a deal between a buyer and a seller that have no business connections such as a dealer and a member of the public.
If the buyer has negotiated a discount such as a trade or fleet discount or the vehicle is not subject to GST, the dutiable value is the negotiated price.
In any other case, the dutiable value is whichever is greater:
- the vehicle's market value including accessories at the date of the transaction
- the vehicle's market value including accessories at the date of transfer.
For more information read the following guides:
