Real Property Gain Tax (RPGT) 2019

Real Property Gain Tax (RPGT)

Updated as at 4th January 2019

RPGT will come into picture when we dispose our property. Since the announcement of Budget 2019 there is an increment to the rate. The amount tax depends on the profit  of the property.

Here are the breakdowns of the new RPGT rate.

RPGT Rate Individuals & Permanent Residents Individual foreigners & Non Residents Companies
Disposal Year 1 30% 30% 30%
Disposal Year 2 30% 30% 30%
Disposal Year 3 30% 30% 30%
Disposal Year 4 20% 30% 20%
Disposal Year 5 15% 30% 15%
Disposal Year 6 onward 5% 10% 10%

As we can see from the above table, the rate increases on 6th years onwards. Now individual purchasers will also have to pay RPGT 6th years onwards.
