14% VAT refund on Land transferred from Parents

14% VAT refund on Land transferred from Parents

The Cyprus Tax Department informs that, by decision of the Council of Ministers (12/01/2022), there is now the possibility of requesting a 14% VAT refund on land purchased by a parent or guardian and transferred to an adult child, for the construction of a residence subject to a reduced VAT rate of 5%.


This amendment applies immediately and the necessary conditions are:

  • The Plan applies to plots defined in the Eighth Annex of the Law on Value Added Tax
  • The property (bought) must be subject to VAT.
  • The house that will be built must be used as a primary residence and be subject to a reduced VAT rate of 5%.

The form for VAT refund for the above cases is available on the Tax Department website and you can see it here >
