Stamp duty is a tax that’s payable when you buy a property in Australia. The amount varies from state to state. Different states also have different rules about whether you can pay stamp duty with a credit card.

Some allow payments only from a savings or chequing account, whereas others allow payment through BPAY – and you may be able to do this through your credit card.

Check the payment options for stamp duty on your local state revenue office website. Also read the fine print to see if BPAY payments on your credit card are considered cash advances, as this could attract a higher interest rate.

Real Time RatingsTM looks at your individual home loan requirements and uses this information to rank every applicable home loan in our database out of five.

This score is based on two main factors – cost and flexibility.

Cost is calculated by looking at the interest rates and fees over the first five years of the loan.

Flexibility is based on whether a loan offers features such as an offset account, redraw facility and extra repayments.

Real Time RatingsTM also includes the following assumptions:

  • Costs are calculated on the current variable rate however they could change in the future.
  • Loans are assumed to be principal and interest
  • Fixed-rate loans with terms greater than five years are still assessed on a five-year basis, so 10-year fixed loans are assessed as being only five years’ long.
  • Break costs are not included.
