Transfer tax form (6012e)

This form is for reporting the transfer tax in a transfer of shares, other securities or a building. The form should be filled in by the buyer or other beneficiary in the transfer.

You are required to use the paper form in the following situations:

  • purchase of shares other than those of a housing company or a real estate company (“corporate stock”, i.e. shares in a limited-liability company)
  • purchase of a first dwelling which will not entirely be used for permanent living
  • purchase of the building only
  • purchase of a part-ownership dwelling
  • exchange deal.

Submit the form online

Report the price of shares of a housing company or real estate company, as well as the amount of transfer tax paid on them, or report a first-time homebuyer’s purchase. The form can be submitted by the real estate agent or, if the sale was carried out without the assistance of an estate agent, by the buyer.

If the sale was conducted independently, pay the transfer tax first and submit the form afterwards.

You will need the following information to fill in the form:

  • the contract of purchase or other contract

Business ID of the housing company or real estate company

  • personal identity code or Business ID of each seller or buyer, because all of their information must be included in the same form
  • a letter from the builder-developer stating the construction’s completion date or a receipt of the payment of the final instalment, if the building in question is a new construction.

You may also need the building manager’s certificate to see details such as the amount of company loan.
