Sam Orgill ProACT Partnership Examines the validity of claims for additional payments to developers in exchange for title deeds

When you make a contract it sets on 3 things: 1. the buyer and seller 2. the goods sold and the price paid 3. what and when happens to fulfill the contract.

Normally a cyprus contract states the buyer pays the money and the seller delivers the property - with title deeds later. The conditions in the contract for buyer and seller determine what you are legally obliged to pay.

Sticking to the letter of the contract could save you thousands off the price.

Adding Up Immovable Property Tax Savings

Sam Orgill ProACT Partnership Expatriate Advice does the sums on the new IMPT regime for Overseas Property Owners in Cyprus

Immovable Property Tax (IMPT) in Cyprus is abolished in 2017. But it gets better if you do the math.  In a dramatic modernisation of the Cyprus Property Tax regime, expats owning overseas property in cyprus will have no taxes to pay for 2016 either.

Retrospectively 2015 IMPT is reduced giving a 25% tax saving.  Receipts are being issued with a 25% credit reduction against the 2015 IMPT tax paid. If anyone has not yet paid 2015, not only will there be no penalty for late payment, the 2015 IMPT tax can now be paid until 31/10/2015. After this time penalties will apply for 2015 rising to 25% from 1/1/2017.

That leaves 2016 where a 75% tax saving is introduced retrospectively from the start of 2016. (100% - 75% tax saving = 25% payable). Despite plans to use new, higher, 2013 rateable values, this has been abandoned to stick with the 1980 rateable values, as used in 2015. Meaning the new 2016 IMPT tax due is equal to the discount being credited to the 2015 IMPT already paid.

This can be paid in a number of different ways.

Sam Orgill of ProACT Partnership with Tax Saving Tips for Property Ownership 

New EU Succession laws enforce radical change for Expats living and working abroad in the EU, or with assets in these countries.  While the UK and Ireland have opted out of applying the EU Directive it still affects EU expats with tax residence or domicile in the EU.
