Property Taxes & Costs There are a number of costs related to buying property in Portugal that you need to budget for. In order to help you make your decision, we have collated some important information which you should be aware of when buying and owning properties in Portugal. Property Purchase Tax (IMT) Purchase Transfer Tax is a property purchase tax which is to be paid by the buyer before completion. 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 6%. 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.

• After the 5 years investors may apply for permanent residency or citizenship

Taxes applicable to buying, selling and owning property in Portugal

Annual council tax on real estate property (IMI) The IMI tax is payable annually. The tax is calculated upon the taxable value (VPT) of the real estate property. 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.

Additional Municipal Property Tax (AIMI) The AIMI is applicable to apartments, houses and plots for construction, excluding non-urban properties and properties of commercial/ service nature. 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

Inheritance Tax There is no inheritance tax in Portugal for non-residents and for immediate family. On gifts a 0,8% stamp duty is calculated on the VPT. 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). This generally means you’ll need to find at least a 25 percent deposit and be able to prove your income. Mortgages in Portugal are available over periods of between 5-30 years. Lending criteria & rates vary between mortgage companies. Note: The above information is general. For specific advice you should contact a lawyer or tax advisor.
