Why invest in Pakistan?
Pakistan has been suffering from a number of economic difficulties for the past few years. However, with an improved financial situation and a stable government that is providing new opportunities for growth, it’s a good time to invest in the country.
Pakistan’s economy is still growing – albeit at a slower rate than anticipated – but it’s been a while since we’ve seen such stability in the country. Investors are now coming back into the market, leading to low-interest rates on loans and property prices being at all-time lows.
There are also numerous incentives available for investors who want to buy or sell property; these include tax exemptions that can help you save up to 60% of your profits if you reinvest them into another property within two years of purchase or sale.
The process of buying property in Pakistan
The process of buying property varies depending on whether you are a foreigner or local. Foreigners must have their own companies registered in Pakistan. Once they have done this, the company buys the property on behalf of the foreign investor. Foreign investors can purchase any property from the open market but will have to transfer it from their company’s name into their own personal name after five years. If you are a local citizen then you can buy land for agricultural use only through an auction where there is an established price list for different types of land.
The process of selling property in Pakistan
In the first step of the process, a person has a choice between registering their property with an estate agent or with the local revenue office. If they register with an estate agent, then they will have to pay them a commission fee for their services as well as an annual fee for maintenance of the land title on behalf of the state. On the other hand, if they register with the local revenue office then there is no commission but there is still an annual fee to maintain ownership of the property. Once registered, it takes about three months for a person’s name to be removed from the list at which point one can sell their house or any other property.
The process of transferring property in Pakistan
If you are looking for property in Pakistan, there are a few things you should know. First of all, there is no requirement for a notary public. Secondly, the process of purchasing property can be complex but this guide will make it easy. Thirdly, if you are transferring property from one individual to another then the process is relatively straightforward.
Taxes and fees associated with buying, selling and transferring real estate in Pakistan
Once the transaction has been completed, buyers will have to pay a stamp duty of 2% of the property’s value. They will also have to pay 1% of the property’s value as withholding tax on the purchase price. They may also be required to pay a Capital Gains Tax (CGT) if they sell the property within three years at a profit. CGT is calculated on the difference between what you originally paid for it (the ‘purchase cost’) and what you sold it for (the ‘sale price’), less any costs incurred in improving or maintaining your property.
For sellers, stamp duty varies depending on whether you own agricultural land or non-agricultural land.
