Description of Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka’s growth into one of the world’s favourite holiday destinations has been nothing if not impressive. From the stunning blue seas to the idyllic landscapes and those all-important low living costs, millions are flocking to Sri Lanka’s golden sands each year. From an investor’s perspective, this of course makes for an ideal buying opportunity – especially since the government’s scrapping off the 100 per cent land sale tax imposed on all foreigners buying in. However, a further update to national laws in 2013 rendered it impossible to buy land outright, bringing in a new restriction limiting foreign investors to 99-year leases. Taxes and fees vary between 5 per cent and 10 per cent, which isn’t bad considering the astonishing demand for holiday lets all year-round.
