Is it possible to avoid a tax on the purchase of real estate in Germany?


Basically, the buyer must pay property tax after the purchase of the property. How could you avoid this?

One of the legal and most effective options is a share deal. The main advantage in favor of a share deal: transactions in equities (rather than asset deals: asset transactions) is a potential tax saving option when buying a property.
The tax won't be charged if the buyer does not acquire more than 94.5% of the shares of the company and the seller has a reserve of more than 5.5% of the shares of the company for a specified period. This time period should last 5 years. During the sixth year, the remaining 5.5% can be assigned to the buyer. This 5.5% must belong to either the seller or an external third party.
