What are the benefits for building new residences? 

Those who develop new student residences will be able to choose between two possibilities.

  1. On the one hand, access to a benefit of up to 60% of the investment made as a tax credit applicable to the payment of the gross income tax. If the projects have certain characteristics such as the location in the Historic Center of the City, the status as a small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) and / or the investment in heritage-protected buildings.
  2. On the other hand, those who build new residences may also opt for exemption from the payment of gross income tax for a maximum period of 24 months. In this case, the law also benefits certain characteristics of the projects such as the status as a small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) and/or the location in the Historic Center of the City of Buenos Aires.

What are the benefits for remodeling existing residences?

  1. Those who reform, expand and improve the equipment of existing residences or make a total or partial conversion from an establishment to a residence, will be able to access a benefit of up to 60% as a tax credit on the investment made. Within this maximum benefit, the law also prioritizes certain characteristics of the project such as the location in the Historic Center of the City and the status as a small and medium-sized enterprise (SME).

Where is the Historic Center located?

It is the founding and oldest area of Buenos Aires, which treasures in its territory much of the history, memory and heritage of the City and the country. With an important role for the educational ecosystem, it comprises 5 universities and 62 educational facilities, being also a central area of access to transfer centers.
