The Cyprus Parliament announced the abolishment or reduction of the property transfer fees on the following cases:
  1. Total exemption from transfer fees, if the transfer relates to a transaction that is subject to VAT
  2. In case a transaction is not subject to VAT (e.g resale property), the legislation provides an exemption of 50% on the amount of transfer fees. This exemption is taken into account by the calculator.
  3. In case a property is registered as a sole property in a Company & the transaction involves the purchase of that company/property, then the buyer receives a total exemption from transfer fees.
