New 2014 taxation scheme to purchase a property in Italy

Posted by on in Taxes in Italy
Taxes to purchase a house in Italy

 In January 2014 the Italian government has issued a new taxation scheme related to the purchase of real estates in Italy.

Firstly, let us see the taxes involved in this new scheme: Registration Tax (Imposta di Registro), Cadastral Tax (Imposta Catastale) and Mortgage Tax (Imposta Ipotecaria).

Now, let us see what the changes are:

- If the house is purchased from a private seller

The Cadastral Tax and the Mortgage Tax have been reduced from 168,00 euro in 2013 to 50,00 euro in 2014.

The Registration Tax for “first house” buyers* has been reduced from the 3% of the cadastral value in 2013 to the 2% of the cadastral value in 2014. Therefore, the new 2014 taxation scheme results advantageous for “first house” buyers.

In the other hand, “second house” buyers*, will have to face an increment of the 2% of the Registration Tax, that has increased from the 7% to the 9%.

If the house is purchased from a private seller, IVA is not due.

- If the house is purchased from a constructor or from a company

If the house is purchase from a developer, a constructor or a private company the Registration Tax, the Cadastral Tax and the Mortgage Tax will cost 200,00 euro each for either “first house” buyers or “second house” buyers. The difference is the amount of IVA that will have to be paid: “first house” buyers are required to pay the 4% of the purchase price of IVA. “Second house” buyers will pay the 10% of the purchase price of IVA.
