A LUMP-SUM TAX WHEN OBTAINING PROPERTY
If you obtain (buy) a property in Bulgaria you will be charged with a tax. The tax is responsibility of the buyer of the property. The base for calculation of the tax is the property estimation (the sum) written in the Notary deed.
A lump-sum tax when obtaining property will be assessed by the Municipality of the region at which the property is located. Obviously the normal range of additional expenses, which include all the necessary taxes is about 3.6%-4.0% of the property estimation (the sum) written in the Notary deed.
IMPORTANT!!! Except the taxes when the buyer obtains a property there are the necessary additional expenses for the lawyer fee and the translator fee.
