FCAI slams NSW stamp duty proposal

The Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries (FCAI) has slammed a proposal from the NSW state opposition to raise stamp duty on vehicles over $100k, describing it as a "tax on a tax". The NSW Labor party last week announced plans to make the state's stamp duty rate the nation's highest, to 7.0 per cent on vehicles prices above $100,000.

July 2017 VFACTS new vehicle sales

New vehicle sales in Australia grew 1.6 per cent in July over the same month in 2016, to a record 92,754 units - enough to keep the market on record year-to-date (YTD) pace. It was the fourth month of record sales for 2017, with July the third month in succession where the feat was achieved. July's market-wide figure was about 30 per cent lower than June's sales, which is common given huge EOFY incentives that always make the year's sixth month its biggest by volume.
