Im new to this forum and have found it quite helpful. However, I have a question regarding double stamp duty, I hope someone can help. I have formed a new company with a unit trust deed to purchase a property. The deposit has been paid, however settlement is 6 months away, hence stamp duty has not been paid. I wish to issue shares to new shareholder before settlement (i do not intend to transfer shares, but instead issue new shares as equity raising for the company). Is there stamp duty applicable to these new shares? Thanks.
