I have a potentially silly question that I can't get my head around, maybe I'm missing something basic. Why don't people put all property purchases under companies (e.g. one property per company)? So that when they resell it one day, they can simply transfer the company shares to the new owner, saving the new owner stamp duty. Also gives other advantages: 1) flexibility - e.g. transfer to children or if you set up a trust later into that trust, again no stamp duty because property is technically not changing ownership 2) new land tax threshold The only downside I can think of is the yearly $200-300 ASIC review fee. What am I missing? Why is this not widespread?
