Taxand: Poland places light tax burden on sale of property


Poland charges one of the lowest taxes on the sale of real property, according to a report by Taxand, an international network of tax advisory firms.

Commercial-property owners in Poland pay an effective tax rate of 4.28% of the selling price, the third-lowest rate among the 23 countries covered by the study, only behind Romania (4.02%) and Cyprus (2.74%). This is thanks to a combination of a relatively low income tax and a neutral VAT.

Similarly, the effective tax paid by homeowners in Poland, at 11.04%, is lower than in all the other countries except two, i.e. Great Britain (6.39%) and Malaysia (5.34%). Again, this is thanks to a low income tax and a reduced VAT rate.
