Purchaser/transferee declaration (ODA 076)

Use this form when you are buying or acquiring property in NSW.

Information collected through the purchaser/transferee declaration is necessary to meet Commonwealth Reporting Requirements and our responsibilities to administer the Duties Act including the identification of foreigners for purchaser surcharge duty and land tax.

Simpler purchaser/transferee declaration forms

Since the declaration was introduced, feedback suggested making it shorter, less complex and able to be filled out electronically.

We have split the form into two types, one for individuals, who use the form in more than 90 per cent of cases, and one for non-individuals.

What you need to know

A declaration must be completed by every person or entity entering into a duties transaction that results in the acquisition of an interest in land in NSW.

Each purchaser/transferee will need to complete their own declaration and have it witnessed in accordance with the Oaths Act 1900.

Under the Taxation Administration Act 1996 you must provide all relevant information to enable duty to be assessed on a document or transaction. It is an offence to provide false or misleading information.

By signing the form, you declare that the required evidence will be presented to OSR upon request.

If the required evidence is not sighted and retained by the legal representative the declarant must be informed of their obligations under the Taxation Administration Act 1996 (Section 48, retention of records and Section 53, retaining records for a period of not less than 5 years).

Fill out the declaration

Read the explanatory notes and supporting evidence requirements (ODA 076 EN) before you fill out the declaration.

Transitioning to the new form

While the new, shorter forms should be used immediately, you may use the previous form if you have already completed it.
