Overview of LMNP and LMP

Investment in rental property allows you to generate additional revenue. In large cities where the rental market is tight, such as Paris and many municipalities in Ile de France, it makes sense to opt for furnished accommodation.

It remains the question to know whether you are under the status of LMNP or LMP.

Renting furnished can be a really attractive investment and an interesting way of both generating an additional income and optimizing one’s tax pressure. However, this status is not as simple as you might think.

As tax options are multiple and so are the administrative procedures, furnished rental business is not an easy way. Yet, when it comes to developing your wealth, it can be a very useful tool when well mastered.
