Will there be any discussions with the Office of State Revenue to set up the payments for stamp duty to be programmed similar to that of the title registration fees? The current work around with inputting the Bpay details for the OSR is fine but it would be ideal knowing that the payment is automatic and can’t be missed. It is really important when choosing to pay via Bpay that you select the correct option in stamping to create the payment, namely, “Received by the self assessor before electronic lodgement network settlement” rather than “Committed to be paid as part of the electronic lodgement network settlement”. The wording causes confusion and can potentially lead to forgetting to pay the Transfer Duty which is why it would be much easier if the system automatically created the payment direct to OSR. I have been guilty of selecting the incorrect option and it took some time to understand why the workspace wasn’t balancing. A more streamline option would make the process much easier and more effective.
