For professionals and institutions

Rental of works of art and leasing (LOA)

The company pays monthly rent for renting works of art, similar to real estate rent. This charge is deductible from the company's taxable income, in accordance with tax regulations (art 39-1 of the CGI). At the end of the rental, it is possible to acquire a work if desired.

Acquisition of works of art

French companies, including liberal professions, have the possibility of benefiting from tax advantages by investing in works of art created by a living artist (Article 238bis AB of the CGI). When a deduction is made extra-accounting, the corresponding part of the accounting result must be allocated to a special reserve recorded on the liability side of the balance sheet. To benefit from this deduction, it is necessary for the company to exhibit the work of art in a place accessible free of charge to the public or to employees, with the exception of their offices, for a period of 5 years. The amounts are deductible up to 10,000 euros or 5% of turnover excluding tax above 10,000 euros.

For individuals

Transfer of work of art

Transfers of works of art worth less than 5,000 euros are exempt from tax (exception for precious metals). In the event of a transfer of works of art for an amount exceeding 5,000 euros, a flat-rate tax is applied in proportion to the transfer price (article 150 VI of the CGI). The applicable levy rate is 6.5% on the sale price.

Succession of work of art

In the context of an inheritance, works of art can be considered as specific assets or assimilated to furniture, which results in the application of a flat rate of 5% for transfer or inheritance taxes.
