I wish I knew that too -- but I think you are right that completely new apartaments/new constructions are tax-free.
If you are a British citizen, nobody except for you has to know that, no? At least when you buy a property in Poland (then as a British citizen you'd have to pay taxes, but I don't think you'd have to pay taxes twice -- at least I hope :).
Can I ask you, how much is the cost of the new apartment?
It depends on location,size........My developer bought land but prices are not set up yet.
But it will be for about 6 000 pln for 1 square m. It is still srodmiescie in krakow but on the north edges.
So I suppose 40-45 square m will cost about 40-45 thousand pounds.
thanks Bolo, there is quite much information in this article.
What I still don't know is if I had to to sell this flat Would I have to pay tax in England.
They don't have anything like this 5 years period. You pay always tax. I don't know if there is communication between Polish and british Inland revenue?
