Please note that Caseineuropa.it does not provide tax, legal, financial services and therefore this section is intended to give an overview of the maximum and as such should be interpreted, albeit elaborated with the utmost caution and caution.
We will then deliberately use a colloquial language, not particularly technical and stuffed with legislative references, just to meet the needs of most of our readers, who will then be able to further deepen the topic with our experts.
The classic questions that are being asked are: how many taxes do I have to pay in England?And in Italy? And the IVIE? What should I say then in Italy?
Let’s do some sort of order.
Firstly, it depends on whether you are buying it in the residential or commercial market, as a natural person or as a company, and then there are different types of companies, so from a tax point of view there are several different positions that can not be all described in a synthetic guide.
Here we look at the most classic case with a concrete example:
Mario Rossi from Cantù (CO), an Italian citizen resident in Italy who buys one of our products (eg a Hotel Room) in the NON-RESIDENT MARKET from £ 80,000 at a guaranteed 10% per annum and a capital gain End of the 10th year of 25%, from which he will then receive an annuity of £ 8,000 / year.
In ENGLAND , on this product, Mario Rossi will only have to make a declaration of income (also through our Adviser if you like) and will not pay any tax (the rate is zero up to £ 11,500 / year, from April 2017); You will not pay property taxes, taxes, stamps, etc … so you will receive NETs of £ 8,000, except for the parcel payable to the tax return professional (£ 190 / year if made through us). You will not have to pay taxes / taxes on the final gain. On non-residential investments, on a rotting and therefore on a one-off basis, a duty (stamp duty) is only payable if the investment exceeds £ 125,000 (2% from £ 125,000 to 250,000; 5% from £ 250,000 to 925,000 Then there are other stakes for higher amounts).
And in ITALY how will things go? What will Mario have to do?
First, the year after your investment, you will have to declare this expense in your RW bill statement (you will not have to pay anything for that, but only declare your purchase). Then he will have to declare each year under the heading “different income” the perceived income abroad; A portion of that income will be added to the taxable amount and will be taxed at the taxpayer ‘s Irpef rate.
However, it should be remembered that in 2011, one of the most beloved and popular former Italian Council Presidents, Mario Monti, introduced the IVIE, ie the tax to be paid on real estate abroad (a sort of “IMU” to be applied to Italians Who buy a property abroad). IVIE corresponds to 0.76% of the value of the property and Mario Rossi will have to pay it in Italy.
There are international treaties between most major countries to avoid double taxation and of course these treaties are in effect also between Italy and the United Kingdom. The “ratio” is that if I pay taxes abroad, then I will not have to pay a second time in Italy (or I will have a tax credit if I have paid less abroad than I would have to pay in Italy); As in England our customer DOES NOT PAY ‘SOME TAX on the property, then he will have to pay in full in Italy to 0.76%.
What is the final PLUSVALENCE ? If the investment goes beyond the 5th year, even in Italy you will NOT have to pay any tax !
All this, it is evident that, if possible, it is advisable to place the property on the family member with a lower income to pay the minimum IRPEF rate provided for by our order.
By making a rough calculation, but not far from reality, we can close by saying that Mario will receive from our English product a net income of 10% annually in England + final gain, which will bring the net yield to 12.50% per annum.
Given the taxes that it will pay in Italy, it is presumed that about 1/3 of the 10% per annum (or about 3.50%) of its annual profit will be shared with our state while the gain will remain with Mario!
The yield on the NET INCOME TAX to be paid in Italy will therefore be around 9% and is considered to be an appreciable result.
WARNING: As an alternative, with our help, Mario can ALWAYS OPEN A SOCIETY IN ENGLAND ; The costs are modest and there are some advantages, such as the fact that as a company it would not pay the IVIE (but not only). However, for a serious cost / benefit analysis, every situation should be carefully evaluated from time to time.
We conclude with a joke we often use at the seminars: “Maybe it’s best to split our profits with a state that is sometimes fiscally disliked and have 9% net per annum rather than holding money in an Italian bank and receiving ZERO, but having The slimest satisfaction of not giving anything to the state … “.
