Can an existing deed be amended to satisfy the criteria for later years of land tax assessment?


Yes. Unit trusts which were not established to satisfy the criteria of a fixed trust and wish to hold land in NSW should have their trust deeds reviewed and amended if necessary in order to benefit from the tax free threshold.

Prior to any amendment it is important to seek legal advice so as to make sure that there is not any stamp duty or tax consequences.
