Authority Updates - New South Wales - June 2016

Changes to NSW Office of State Revenue Conveyancing Document Lodgement Service

Conveyancing documents which are able to be processed via Electronic Duties Returns (EDR), will no longer be assessed at OSR (Office State Revenue).

Effective 1 July 2016, conveyancing documents which are able to be processed via Electronic Duties Returns (EDR), will no longer be assessed at OSR (Office State Revenue).

Refer to the EDR Document Matrix for details on processing options.

If your organisation has been processing any of these document types at OSR directly, you will be required to submit them online from 1 July 2016, by registering as a EDR Client. 

IMPORTANT TO NOTE: From 1 July 2016 OSR will not accept documents that can be processed on EDR, at the counter or through the mail. If OSR receives these documents, they will be returned unassessed.

To register to use EDR via SAI Global Property's Search Manager, please visit the EDR Registration page.

Once your application is complete, you will be contacted by OSR to progress your application. Upon approval of your application, system and procedural training will be arranged with you. You will also receive a Duties Notice of Assessment, booklet of remittance slips and accountable stamps.

Alternately, SAI Global also provides an over the counter stamping service open from 8:30am - 4:15pm daily, at our Sydney CBD Settlement Room located conveniently on Level 3, 60 Castlereagh St, Sydney. Documents are stamped immediately by our experienced staff, and any issues that prevent stamping can be explained in detail. 

For further enquiries, please call our Helpdesk on 1300 730 000.
