NSW Electronic Duties Return (EDR) - NSW

SAI Global Property is a Revenue NSW registered client service provider (CSP).
Via our Search Manager platform, we can provide EDR approved solicitors, conveyancers and finance companies with access to the NSW Revenue for processing duties’ transactions (such as agreement for sale of land, transfer of real estate, mortgages and marketable securities) online without having to entrust these documents to the care of third parties. 
Search Manager simplifies the process by clearly categorising processes i.e. ‘Conveyances’, ‘Mortgages’ and ‘Marketable Securities’.  All fields are logically laid out, and the duty payable automatically calculated. While our online system will handle all commonly stamped documents, occasional complicated stamping matters will be sent to the  Revenue NSW at Parramatta for detailed assessment.
Search Manager also has a specially designed facility which enables very high volume standard stamping transactions such as motor vehicle finance contracts to be bulk-loaded. However, use of this facility is subject to strict controls and will require a detailed analysis before access can be granted.
Changes to Revenue NSW Conveyancing Document Lodgement service

The Revenue NSW is committed to the Government’s target of having 70% of transactions conducted digitally by 2019. One of our digital services, Electronic Duties Returns (EDR), allows authorised agents to process a wide range of Duties transactions from their office. This service also allows solicitors and conveyancers to seamlessly integrate with e-Conveyancing platforms and services.
Currently, some legal firms continue to lodge documents for assessment that could be done via EDR, this is unsustainable.

Commencing 1 July 2016, conveyancing documents, which can be processed through the EDR system, will no longer be assessed by the Revenue NSW. This is the first step of our digital transformation for property with more to come in 2016 and through 2017.”

Electronic stamping:

Since the introduction of electronic conveyancing in New South Wales and the availability for certain documents types to be stamped using an ELNO, there has been some uncertainty on the process involved, what information is required by the conveyancer or legal practitioner and how Customer Service Providers, such as SAI Global can assist. To help you better understand we have created a list of frequently asked questions.
