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 to benefit from the tax-free threshold.

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