In arriving at effective capital gains tax rates, the Global Property Guide makes the following assumptions: The property is directly and jointly owned by husband and wife; They have owned it for 10 years; It is their only source of capital gains in the country It has appreciated in value by 100% over the 10 years to sale The property was worth US$250,000 or 250,000 at purchase. It is not their sole or principal residence. These assumptions are critical. In many countries a holding period of less than 5 years results in capital gains being taxable. But a longer holding period often results in no capital gains tax being payable.
