“The Victorian government has swapped the sledgehammer it wielded when imposing significant tax surcharges on overseas buyers for a housing affordability scalpel, in a more targeted and policy-based tax reform.

But there are risks in reducing off-the-plan concessions for investors, as it could put the brakes on new residential development. That would run counter to the purpose of a ‘vacancy tax’ in driving rental availability.

Details of the anticipated exemptions for the vacancy tax will be critical in ensuring that revenue projections - and stock increases - are actually realised.”
