What to do if NowInfinity is Stamping your Deed
Below is a list of what we need to proceed with stamping the deed(s). Any missing information may cause delays in the stamping process. We recommend you read this carefully and thoroughly.
Step 1: Signing the Deed
- The unbound trust deed must be signed by all parties and dated.
- Deeds can be signed by Electronic signatures via secure methods. Please liaise with Revenue NSW or Victoria State Revenue if you have any queries regarding signing deeds electronically.
Step 2: Returning the signed and dated deed for stamping
- Email the signed and dated deed via the "Stamp Request" email you would have previously received from us and attach any relevant documents.
- If you requested extra copies of the deed to be stamped, only 1 deed is required to be returned via email, regardless of the number of copies initially requested. ($10 duty per stamped duplicate copy applies in NSW and there is no charge in VIC).
- Post the unbound signed and dated hard copy deed to us.
- If you require more copies to be stamped than were provided with your choice of presentation, you will need to print the required number of additional copies.
- If you requested more than 1 deed to be stamped, please ensure all hard copies of the deeds (including 1 unbound) are signed and dated the same date by all parties. ($10 duty per stamped duplicate copy applies in NSW and there is no charge in VIC).
- Our Postal Address is:
Reply Paid 88340
Locked Bag 9009
CASTLE HILL NSW 1765
Step 3: Ensuring the following supporting documents are provided to us
For NSW deeds – Certified Identification Requirements
- The Office of State Revenue in NSW requires certified ID for each Individual Trustee. eg: birth certificate, driver's licence, passport, foreign passport, visa to enter Australia, firearms licence, proof of age card or Australian citizenship certificate are acceptable.
- The certification must say, “I certify that I have sighted the original document, and this is a true copy of it.” It must be certified by one of the following:
- Legal practitioner
- Licensed conveyancer
- Justice of the Peace (JP)
- Certified practicing accountant
- Chartered accountant
- Officer of the Office of State Revenue (OSR)
- Public notary
- Commissioner of declarations
- Member of Parliament
- Police officer
- Minister of religion
- Medical practitioner
- Veterinary practitioner
- Email the certified ID via the "Stamp Request" email you would have previously received from us or post to NowInfinity.
- Certified ID is not required for corporate trustees.
For VIC deeds - Stamp Duty Declaration
- The Stamp Duty Declaration must be signed and dated by the Trustee and emailed via the "Stamp Request" email you would have previously received from us or post to NowInfinity.
STEP 4: Stamping of the deed(s)
On receipt of the deed(s) we will stamp with Revenue NSW or Victorian State Revenue Office (VIC SRO) as nominated by the Jurisdiction in your order.
For NSW deeds:
- There is no longer a requirement to endorse instruments using a duty stamp. An issued Duties Notice of Assessment will display a Duties Assessment Number (DAN). The DAN will be typed or written on the first operative page of the deed(s).
- VIC SRO requires funds to be cleared before they will issue the Certificate of Duty. This will delay the stamping process by 2-3 days.
Step 5: When Stamping is Completed
For NSW deeds:
- Once complete, the stamped deed will be emailed to you with the Duties Assessment Number (DAN) displayed on the first operative page of the deed. It will be returned to you via email with the Duties Assessment Statement.
- If you posted hard copy(s) for stamping, they will be returned by courier along with the Duties Assessment Statement.
For VIC deeds:
- Once complete, the Certificate of Duty will be emailed to you.
- If you posted hard copy(s) for stamping, they will be returned by courier along with the Certificate of Duty.
