In 2021

Transacted dwellings in the Autonomous Region of Madeira hit record highs

Introductory note

The Directorate of Statistics of Madeira (DREM) presents the quarterly and annual data of Transacted Dwellings series, revised and extended with new indicators after the Portuguese Tax and Customs Authority (AT) made available more detailed and additional information to Statistics Portugal (INE).

This additional information makes available new indicators for the Autonomous Region of Madeira (ARM): the number and value of dwelling transactions, broken down by the buyer's institutional sector (households and other sectors), on a quarterly basis (as of the 1st quarter of 2019) and the buyer's tax residence (National Territory, European Union, and Remaining Countries), on an annual basis (as of 2019).

It should also be noted that this additional information provided to INE by the AT has led to the suppression of redundant records of Property Transfer Tax (IMT) assessments and consequently in the downward revision of the number and total value of dwelling transactions.

It should also be recalled that this information is obtained from the administrative tax data on the IMT and the Municipal Property Tax (IMI), which are provided monthly to INE by AT, on the basis of a cooperation protocol signed between these two entities.
