Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2008 Week 5 Hansard (6 May) . . Page.. 1460..
MR STANHOPE (continuing):
"nominal duty"assessments, for example, section 54—change in trustees, are also not within the scope of the bill as they involve a change of ownership of dutiable property.
The 2007-08 revenue forecast for the elimination of the minor taxes is $0.2 million. The relatively small amount of revenue forgone also involves the removal of administrative and compliance costs associated with the minor taxes. Furthermore, the removal of the requirement to lodge and pay duty on related instruments will reduce administrative costs for the professional community and general public. I commend the Duties Amendment Bill 2008 to the Assembly.
Debate (on motion by Mr Smyth) adjourned to the next sitting.
