GGI member firm Delovoy Profil Audit & Consulting Group experts have conducted a market analysis of the commercial real estate market for 2013. The figures for the market are evidence of the fact that the last year has proven to be very lucrative for Russian property developers. As a whole, investments in residential and commercial real estate have fallen by 7.5% in the past year since 2012, down to total USD 8.1 billion. Despite this, property developers nevertheless consider 2013 to have been successful, as all records had been broken with a great resurgence in demand in 2012, following the financial crisis of 2008 and 2009.

As the world’s economies continue to struggle making investments and seeking business opportunities internationally, a critical analysis of how to structure, finance, operate, grow and eventually liquidate the opportunity is imperative. Ambitious plans are often derailed or delayed and certainly made more costly, because at the outset the crucial aspects and phases in the life cycle of investments, whether real estate or business, have not been carefully considered.

According to the Bank of Italy, the value of real estate is represented by "the estimated amount for which the property should be exchanged on the date of valuation between a willing seller and a potential purchaser. This is in accordance with normal market conditions after adequate sales promotion, in which the parties have acted with knowledge of facts, prudently and with no constraint.

Canada is increasingly a destination of choice for investment, land development and emigration. However, it is vital to be aware that each Province regulates and controls foreign ownership of real property even if that ownership arises from the acquisition of control of an entity that owns the real property.

In the last article we provided an introduction to the consequences of buying a property in France. Here we continue our analysis of the consequences of buying a property in France by developing the topic of French inheritance tax: France offers several options as to how property can be held, as property does not simply have to be owned directly in the names of the purchasers. It is also possible to own property through a French civil or commercial company. However, ownership of a French property by a commercial company can lead to financial nightmares, the issues relating to which invariably require the ownership to be restructured1.

After two tough years in which the property tax paid by owners of Italian real estate dramatically increased, the Italian Parliament just passed a bill that will at last give breath to an exhausted real estate sector.

Ever more companies are trying to set themselves apart from their competitors through extraordinary commitments to sustainability in order to gain further market shares. For example, companies are using electric cars in their fleets, recycled paper and “save paper” messages in email correspondence. For a growing number of companies, this also includes concluding a green lease contract. In addition to the company’s external image, such a move is prompted by the desire to assume corporate social responsibility because there is a general feeling that we cannot rely solely on the state and non-profit organisations, but must also take responsibility ourselves.
