The tax levied on the average annual income on a rental apartment/property in the country. Assumptions: Gross rental income is /US$1,500/month The property is personally directly owned jointly by husband and wife Both owners are foreigners and non-residents They have no other local income There is no mortgage, i.e., no loan is taken for the purchase In arriving at the pre-tax profit figure, we calculate, and deduct: Depreciation / capital allowances if available. We assume a value for the apartment based on our valuation research, and depreciate on this basis. We deduct any other costs which a landlord normally pays - management charges, buildings insurance, realtor agency fees, etc. We either choose a standard percentage deduction (if available) or typical actually incurred costs. If real estate tax is normally payable by the landlord, we deduct that. Our rental income tax figures are provided by accountants (see list of contributors). For more details see the Data FAQ.
