1 jan 2024: Home value limit starter exemption to €510,000
Legislative tax change per 01-01-2024
One of the conditions for using the starter's exemption is that the purchase price may not exceed a certain amount, known as the house value limit. Currently, the house value limit is €440,000. For the year 2024, a higher home value limit of €510,000 will apply. Homebuyers aged between 18 and 35 years do not pay transfer tax for a house up to this limit, subject to conditions.
The home value limit refers to the total value of the house or rights to which it is subject and the appurtenances belonging to that house. Is the purchase price including appurtenances higher than €510,000 in 2024? Then there is no right to the starter exemption.
