The new objective values of the properties are being implemented, as the relevant ministerial decision for their adjustment was signed.
According to an announcement issued by the Ministry of Finance, the ministerial decision stipulates that prices from 400.00 to 650.00 euros, as well as prices from 4,050.00 to 8,800.00 euros remain unchanged, while in all other band price groups the current prices are reduced from 5% to 19%. The decision will, in fact, have retroactive effect from 21/05/2015, thus implementing a relevant decision of the Council of State on the adjustment of objective values with retroactive effect from the specific date.
