SELLING ADVISE

1. Selling your property in Bali can be very confusing. Choosing the right real estate agent is the most important things to remember. Even though you can list it with as many real estate agents you want we don’t recommend doing so. Choose 3-4 real estate agents who you have met and who you are confident will represent you in a professional manor.

2. Selling a property in Bali involves some costs besides the real estate agents fee. Especially tax. There are several types of taxes and fees incurred by the property seller.

3. The Indonesian government, like any other government, imposes taxation obligations on foreign investors and it is therefore essential to obtain qualified legal advice from a lawyer/legal advisor.

4. The taxation depends on which property you want to sell. Here is an overview of the taxes you must pay whether you are selling your villa or land as freehold or leasehold.

– Leasehold property or leasehold land                                   10% income tax (PPH)

– Land & Building tax has to be paid up to date when selling the property or land.

– Freehold property or freehold land                                        2,5% income tax (PPH)

– Land & Building tax has to be paid up to date when selling the property or land.
