0comments

2014 is a significant year for real estates in Italy and it has brought a small revolution concerning indirect taxation on real estate sales. The news are mainly involving the registration and the land taxes, which are generally lower compared to past years, when taxes had a significant weight on the buyers. But let’s see in detail all the changes:

Main Home
 Purchase from a private seller

  • Registration Tax: 2%
  • Fixed Land Registry tax: €50.00
  • Fixed Cadastral tax: € 50,00

  Purchase from construction company (if works have been completed within 5 years)

  • VAT 4%
  • Fixed Land Registry tax: €200.00
  • Fixed Cadastral tax: € 200,00

   Purchase from a contruction company (if works have been completed for more than 5 years) or if you buy from a company different from a construction company

  • VAT – No need to pay for the VAT
  • Registration Tax: 2%
  • Fixed Land Registry tax: €200.00
  • Fixed Cadastral tax: € 200,00

Second Home
 Purchase from a private seller, from a company different from a construction company, from a construction company 5 years after the end of the works

  • Registration Tax: 9%
  • Fixed Land Registry tax: €50.00
  • Fixed Cadastral tax: € 50,00

Purchase from a contruction company (if works have been completed for more than 5 years)

  • Fixed Registration Tax: € 200,00
  • Fixed Land Registry tax: €200.00
  • Fixed Cadastral tax: € 200,00

This is an incentive from the Italian Government to give a boost to the real estate market and make it shine again. Buying a house in Italy has never been so affordable, indeed!
