Cyprus Property Transfer Fees and Stamp Duty Calculator

About the Cyprus Property Tax Calculator

This tax calculator aims to estimate your tax obligations when purchasing a freehold property in Cyprus.

For registering a property in the buyer’s name, transfer fees are required. These fees are determined by the property’s market value as assessed by the Land Registry on the purchase date. However, if VAT has been paid on the property, Property Transfer Fees are not applicable.

Stamp duties are taxes imposed on property buyers at the time of registering the property sales agreement with the land registry.

    Cyprus Stamp Duty And Transfer Fees Calculation Breakdown

    Cyprus Property Transfer Fees

    Transfer fees are a progressive tax paid by property purchasers to the land registry upon transferring the property title to their name. For newly built properties, no Property Transfer Fees are payable if VAT has been paid on the property. When a transaction is exempt from VAT, such as in the case of resale properties, the law allows for a 50% reduction in transfer fees. This discount is factored into the calculations made by the calculator.
