The deductions on mutual restructuring
Often a loan is used to support the renovation work, which exactly as for a mortgage whose purpose is the purchase of a home, will be entitled to tax deductions on interest expense. However, there are some limits to be taken into account.
First of all, the tax deduction is up to interest on the part of the loan actually used. It is therefore necessary to document the expenses incurred for the works, because the benefit will not be paid on the interest that relates to the part of the loan exceeding the amount of the restructuring costs.
The loan agreement must be stipulated by the person who will have ownership of the real estate unit by way of property or other real right. Furthermore, the Revenue Agency, with a document dated 28 April 2018, emphasizes that the building unit that is being built or renovated must be the one in which the tax payer or his family members intend to dwell habitually.
With regards to timing, the loan must be stipulated in the six months preceding or eighteen months following the date of commencement of the construction work.
In the event of a mixed-use mortgage, first home and renovation (or construction of a building), the double deduction will be due only in the duration of the works, from the beginning until the following six months.
