Property Taxes in Greece: Do I Need an Accountant in Greece?

The Greek Tax system  seems very complicated to foreigners, so one  of the most popular questions is

“Do I need an accountant in Greece?”  The answer is, yes!

It is essential to hire an accountant early on to help you with tax returns and explain property taxation. It doesn’t matter if you will stay in Greece or liveaboard, you will still need an accountant.

In case you are buying a property for passive income purposes, it is also very important to have an accountant. Because any natural person or legal entity, earning income in Greece, is generally obliged to submit annual tax income statements and be taxed for such income. 

In our company, we provide our customers with the opportunity to get all they need in just “one-stop” and Tax Consulting is no exception.
