Property tax

France

Frequent reforms dictate the way in which the tax regulations relating to the ownership of and transactions in property assets and property companies in France or abroad are shaped. At a time when the Government is keeping up the pressure in terms of audits, the tax implications of property investments, their structuring, financing and transfer, mean that a perfect understanding of the applicable tax rules is essential.
