What is the Lease Agreement with Cedolare Secca

The Lease Agreement with Cedolare Secca is an agreement by which one party (lessor) makes available to the other (tenant or “tenant”) by choosing to apply a subsidized tax regime, the dry coupon.

In fact, the dry coupon allows you to apply a substitute tax for personal income tax and additional income from the property. The taxation of the fee is set at 21% and the registration tax and stamp duty will not be paid for the registration, termination, and extensions of the contract.

In view of these advantages, the dry coupon regime implies the waiver of the right to ask for an update of the rent, including the variation on the basis of the I stat index.

When using the contract with coupon dry

The coupon dry option is applicable to any rental agreement between private individuals (natural persons) of properties belonging to the cadastral categories from A1 to A11 (excluding the A10 relating to private offices or studios) and related appurtenances (cellars, garages, etc.) rented together with the house.

This regime cannot be applied to lease agreements concluded with tenants acting in the exercise of a professional or business activity.

The choice to apply the coupon is up to the lessor who can exercise the option at the time of registration of the contract or even in subsequent years.

In tax terms, the income subject to a coupon has the following characteristics:

  • it is excluded from total income and is not relevant for the purposes of calculating the personal income tax rate
  • he cannot benefit from further tax deductions or allowances
  • it must be included in the total income for the purpose of recognizing other deductions, deductions or benefits of any title linked to the possession of particular income requirements.

In the event that you want to apply the dry coupon option to a lease contract for use other than residential (e.g. for a commercial operation, for a company, for professionals, etc.) this contract must be used: contract commercial lease.
