In the event that a lease falls short of a full year, the rebate is reduced proportionately to the number of days for which the lease is carried out. The rebate for any year cannot exceed 15% of the rent derived for that same year.
The maximum amount of tax rebate is as follows:
The tax rebate is to be claimed through the online filing of the TA24.
