if you have sold your house - you are probably using a lawyer - i'd ask them for a definitive answer.........



one of the problems with a forum is that very often advice can be misleading.........

If you get 10 replies they will contain 11 opinions...None of which are likely to be correct.

Bob and NN, does that include me?

There is no Capital Gains Tax in TRNC, full stop.



However there is "Stopaj" which means "stopping at source" and this is something that professional vendors pay against their income tax in advance e.g. Suppose they paid 5000 TL in Stopaj that year and suppose your income tax liability for that year is 7000 TL. You simply pay another 2000 TL. If you sell more than three pieces of land in one year then you are classed as a professional vendor, otherwise not.

Barry Msg 1 & Dermici Msg 8 - I am just making an assumption that you are both talking about North Cyprus and not the UK am I correct?t Ismet's comment in msg 5 would only apply to the TRNC (Ismet would also be correct and is possibly the only source on Cyprus44 that might be accurate see msg's 2, 3 & 4).
