Entrust your high-end real estate project to one of our appointed lawyers to receive experienced and knowledgeable advice, ensuring legal compliance and the planning and optimization of your taxation.

Here are some possible strategies for real estate tax planning in France:

Investing in rental properties: Rental investments offer advantageous tax schemes, such as the Pinel law or the Malraux law, providing tax reductions under certain conditions.

Utilizing tax deferral mechanisms: Mechanisms like SCPI (real estate investment trusts), FIP (venture capital investment funds), or FCPI (innovation investment funds) allow for tax advantages, particularly in income tax or wealth tax.

Opting for the actual regime: The actual regime enables the deduction of expenses and renovation works from income tax, resulting in a tax reduction.

Defiscalizing loan interest: Loan interest can be deducted from rental income, reducing income tax.

Choosing furnished rentals: Furnished rentals benefit from more advantageous tax treatment compared to unfurnished rentals.

Donating bare ownership: Donating bare ownership allows for the transmission of assets while reducing inheritance tax.

Leveraging tax incentives: Certain tax incentives provide tax reductions for renovation works or investments in historic monuments.

Using an REIT (Real Estate Investment Trust): Creating an REIT allows for a reduction in tax on rental income by opting for corporate tax regime.

Utilizing property splitting: Property splitting reduces inheritance tax and optimizes tax planning.

Anticipating asset transmission: Anticipating asset transmission allows for more advantageous tax treatment and optimal planning for the transmission of assets.
