selling a maison secondaire

Post by george » Fri Nov 02, 2018 3:35 pm


Can anyone give me a quick overview of the charges associated with selling a second home in France ?. My principal residence is also in France and I am selling the second home (a holiday apt) privately; no immobilier. Is it true that CGT (impôt sur les plus values) is the only tax payable and that it is calculated on the difference between how much I paid for the property and how much I'm selling it for ?

Having sold one earlier this year that's all there was but any one would be lucky to make a profit in these days.
