International accountancy network UHY releases its 2017 “Global real estate guide”.
As the world becomes more globalized real estate investors are looking for international opportunities and investors need to effectively navigate the rules and regulations of the country where the property is situated. Similar to other major investments, proper planning is needed to avoid pitfalls.
Readers can access information from over 70 countries featured in the UHY GLOBAL REAL ESTATE GUIDE 2017, covering areas such as tax regulations (e.g. deduction of expenses and interest), tax rates (e.g. VAT, wealth tax and inheritance tax) and also covers some tax planning techniques.
Given the scope and complexity of each individual country’s laws and regulations, this publication gives an overview of real estate investment considerations around the world.
‘This document provides a helpful guide to real estate investors who are interested in understanding the broad tax and other issues relating to international real estate investments,’ concludes Ken Shemie, partner at UHY Victor LLP, Montreal, Canada.
