  • increase their comfort for the occupants.

Good to know The entry into force of the RE 2020 should lead to a 6 to 8% increase in construction costs!

Development tax adjustment

Local tax, the development tax applies to constructions, reconstructions and extensions as soon as the operation is subject to administrative authorization (building permit or prior request). It is collected for the benefit of the region, the department and the municipality. It is calculated according to the formula :

Taxable area of the construction x Standard value x Rate .

  • The taxable surface: sum of the closed and covered floor surfaces with a ceiling height higher than 1.80 meters. (Vacuums and openings of stairs or elevators are excluded).
  • The flat rate value: 929 €/m² in Île-de-France and 820 €/m² in the rest of France;
  • The rate: it is determined by the local authorities.
