New fixed-interest home building bond from Bank Austria Wohnbaubank AG

Bank Austria Wohnbaubank AG has issued a new fixed-interest home building bond. 3.50 % WohnbauAnleihe 2010 – 2022/1 has a term of twelve years. The denomination of this continuous issue is EUR100, with a recommended minimum investment of EUR 1,000.

Investment in home building bonds is eligible for tax benefits. For private investors, interest from home building bonds is exempt from capital gains tax up to an annual amount of 4 per cent. There is no limit to the amount that can be purchased and there is no supplementary taxation upon sale. These benefits result in higher net earnings in comparison to bonds that are subject to full taxation.

Home building bonds are taxed at source; this means they are exempt from income tax. The expenses for the purchase of newly issued bonds can be claimed as special expenses by private investors within legal limits. This requires that the bonds be held for ten years. The effective yields are therefore dependent on each investor’s income, among other conditions.
