In France, VAT (currently 20%) is added to the basic cost of off-plan properties. If you are looking to buy a new chalet or apartment and then rent it out furnished for a number of weeks a year, then you can reclaim the VAT upfront. To qualify, you must commit to renting out your holiday home for 20 years. If you decide to sell your new build chalet or apartment or take it off the rental market within the 20 year period, then you will need to pay back the VAT on a pro rata basis.
