The Mazda 2 is an excellent family car that is very reasonably priced for the features and the driving experience that it offers. However, like any car, it will be subject to certain additional fees before you can drive your new or used car off the lot. One fee that every car generates is stamp duty and if youíve never purchased a car or itís been a while since you upgraded this can be hard to understand. In this article, we will take a closer look at what stamp duty is and how much it will cost.

A Brief Primer on Stamp Duty

Whenever you buy a car, it will be necessary to pay stamp duty before you can drive it away. Stamp duty is a tax that is levied by your state government as an official document. Usually, this is paid whenever a new motor vehicle is purchased, and a good way to look at it is that itís a one off tax that is paid when ownership is transferred. This is equally applicable when you are buying a new or used car from a dealer or from a private seller, The rate of stamp duty can differ a great deal depending upon which Australian state or territory the transaction takes place in. In this particular article, we will focus on the sales in Western Australia, and the stamp duty costs there only.

Western Australia Stamp Duty Charges

In Western Australia, the stamp duty paid is based upon the dutiable value of the vehicle being purchased. This could be either the manufacturer list price for a new vehicle or the reasonable market value for a used car. Below we will look at an example to illustrate it in an easy to understand way with real dollar values.

The three ranges or bands of prices and the corresponding stamp duty payments are as follows:

1. Up to $25,000

On a new car, the stamp duty would be 2.75% of the listed price
On a second hand car, the stamp duty would also be 2.75% of the reasonable market value.

2. $25,001 - $50,000

This stamp duty is a little more complex, and the percentage of the stamp duty is based on the equation of 2.75 + (dutiable value -25000 / 6666.66). For example: on a new vehicle with a value of $30,000, the rate of stamp duty would be 2.75 - (30000-25000/6666.66), which works out at 3.5% or $1,050.

3. Over $50,000

On a new car, the stamp duty would be 6.5% of the listed price
On a second hand car, the stamp duty would also be 6.5% of the reasonable market value.
