Finland: Capital gains taxes (%).

In arriving at effective capital gains tax rates, the Global Property Guide makes the following assumptions:

  • The property is directly and jointly owned by husband and wife;
  • They have owned it for 10 years;
  • It is their only source of capital gains in the country
  • It has appreciated in value by 100% over the 10 years to sale
  • The property was worth US$250,000 or 250,000 at purchase.
  • It is not their sole or principal residence.

These assumptions are critical. In many countries a holding period of less than 5 years results in capital gains being taxable. But a longer holding period often results in no capital gains tax being payable. For more details see the Data FAQ

Finland publishes good house price and rent statistics. The best source is Statistics Finland, though some longer time-series are in Finnish (asuntojen hintakehitys = dwelling price changes).

The Institute for Real Estate Economics has The Finnish Property Monthly, Quarterly and Annual reports. The Bank of Finland is a third good source (see statistics | prices and costs | domestic asset prices).
