Property owners in Greece

Only 6% of property owners in Greece will pay more for their Single Property Tax (ENFIA) this year, according to a bill introducing the amended version of the tax, tabled on Tuesday in Parliament in Athens. The vast majority of owners – an estimated 5 million taxpayers – will pay less than they did in 2021.

The main rates of the new Single Property Tax are as follows: For zone rates from 751 to 1,500 euros per square meters, the tax will drop from €3.70/sq.m. to €2.80/sq.m. The €1,501-2,500/sq.m. zones will see their tax rate drop from €4.5-6 sq.m. to €3.70/sq.m. As for the €2,501-3,000/sq.m. zones, the tax rate there will fall from €7.60/sq.m. today to €4.50/sq.m.

Furthermore, the new system will expand the 30% ENFIA discount for properties up to €100,000 euros each (it had been up to €60,000 until 2021), and the 25% discount will expand to properties of €100,001-€150,000. The bill also provides for the payment of the Single Property Tax in up to 10 interest-free monthly installments, up from six tranches in 2021.
