RevenueSA has launched new functionality in RevenueSA Online which allows approved clients to lodge and upload documents online that are Self Determined or submitted to the Commissioner of State Taxation for an assessment of stamp duty (Opinion).
This functionality is available to existing registered RevNet clients and accessed through RevenueSA Online at www.revenuesaonline.sa.gov.au
Most RevNet users are already accessing RevenueSA Online to provide property data to the Commonwealth.
RevenueSA has conducted a number of webinars in relation to these changes. You can access a recording of one of these webinars from RevenueSA’s webinar replays page on RevenueSA’s website.
During the transition period from RevNet to RevenueSA Online you will be able to finalise self-determined documents in RevNet. In the near future RevNet stamp duty functionality will be deactivated and you will be required to complete all transactions in RevenueSA Online.
No. All existing RevNet stamp duty clients have been transitioned to access both the Self Determination and Opinion functionality in RevenueSA Online.
While RevNet is still operational you will use your existing RevNet username and password to access both systems. Once RevNet is decommissioned you will be transitioned to use your email as your username for RevenueSA Online.
A review of client activity has shown that clients have generally stopped grouping documents in batches for stamp duty lodgement. Batches have not been available for eConveyancing since its introduction. Accordingly, based on client usage, the batch functionality concept has been discontinued.
You can still group documents for Section 67 assessment of duty. If you flag the document as a Section 67 document, you will be requested to add additional documents into the Section 67 group as you complete the data entry.
Following a review of the document types RevenueSA has used this opportunity to reduce the total number of documents available for selection. You can still self determine the same documents but we have simplified the process. For example, document types for consideration and no consideration have been consolidated to a single document type.
As a result of these changes the Stamp Duty Document Guides have been updated. You will be able to access the updated Stamp Duty Document Guides through RevenueSA Online and on RevenueSA’s website.
Slip printers will no longer be supported and are therefore unable to be used. Rubber stamps must be used to record stamp duty details on the document.
Once an Opinion document has been lodged through RevenueSA Online, and assessed duty has been paid, it can be processed as a valid document ID through eConveyancing.
Functionality is being developed to allow administrators to create new users for your organisation in RevenueSA Online. Existing RevNet user profiles have copied across to RevenueSA Online, although the user types have been simplified. We will notify you once this is available.
The online Opinion function is fully integrated and provides real time updates for clients and RevenueSA. In time, this will be the only method in which RevenueSA Online users will be able to lodge Opinions. If you are approved for this functionality you are discouraged from sending documents to RevenueSA through other channels during the transition period. Eventually the use of traditional channels (mail and counter lodgements) will cease and documents not lodged through RevenueSA Online will be returned to you.
Yes. Despite batches no longer being used, a Self Determination document will still have a 9 day life-cycle. From date of creation you have 9 calendar days to complete a document and authorise payment.
Each screen in RevenueSA Online has a Help link that will take you to a Help page specific to where you are in the process. You can also access the help from RevenueSA’s website on the Help & Process Guides Page.
You can also access a recording of one of our webinars RevenueSA Online: Stamp Duty System Changes from RevenueSA’s webinar replays page
