It is calculated by the higher value of either the value of the deeds (sales price) or on the VPT (Valor Patrimonial Tributário - rateable value of property attributed by the tax authorities to calculate property taxes). IMT rate is variable and depends on the type of property and the value of the property -according to a sliding scale, varying between 1% and 8%. For urban plots for construction, the tax rate is fixed at 6,5%. Stamp Duty, Notarial, registration fees and Legal fees The stamp duty is calculate at 0,8% of the declared value of the deal. In the event that the sales price is lower than the VPT, the tax is calculated based on the highest amount. Notarial and registration fees are generally circa €1.500.

The IMI rate is determined by the competent Municipality Assembly for the next year. The applicable rate ranges between 0,3% and 0,45% for urban property and 0,8% for non-urban properties.
Capital Gains Tax All acquisition costs can be offset against future capital gains tax liabilities (currently 28% for non-residents and 25% for companies (non-resident) as so are some refurbishments and improvements made to the property, providing they are properly documented, so it is important to keep and file records carefully.

The taxable value to which the AIMI relates is the sum of the Taxable Patrimonial Value (VPT) of the properties held by each taxpayer, as of January 1st of each year. The AIMI is applicable when the sum of the VPTs is over €600.000 for privately owned properties as follows: • Sum of VPTs from €600.000 to €1.000.000: rate of 0,7% applies on the difference. • Sum of VPTs above €1.000.000: rate of 0,7% on €400.000 + 1% on the value in excess of €1.000.000. • Company owned properties: rate of 0,4% on the total value

In other cases, a 10% stamp duty will be applied Mortgages in Portugal Mortgages for property in Portugal are normally available for up to 75 percent of the value of the bank valuation (loan to value LTV).
