Compared to other countries, the real estate tax situation in Vietnam looks very attractive. Find out what fees you should pay when buying a property in the primary market.
VAT (value added tax)
Vietnamese VAT is 10% when it comes to buying an apartment in the primary market.
Maintenance fee / depreciation fund
In any case, buyers will have to pay a service charge of 2% of the purchase price. These funds are used to maintain the building and infrastructure – swimming pools, elevators, security, gardeners and more.
Registration fee is 0.5% of the value of the property.
Rental income tax
It is believed that Vietnam, in comparison with other Asian countries, has a rather high income tax if you rent an apartment. You will have to pay not only 5% VAT, but also 5% personal income tax. To summarize, you will have to pay 10% of your rental income.
Capital gains tax
When selling your property you will have to pay an income tax of 2%.
Foreigners are unlikely to be able to acquire land, but for information, the tax will be from 0.03 to 0.15%.
