acquistare proventil You may buy in your own name or set up a local company through which to buy the property, though this is not really necessary if you are simply intending the property to be your residence and not a business. There is a 4% stamp duty to be paid on the purchase of any property, however there is no capital gains tax payable on selling your property.
