Did you know that Buenos Aires is the best city to study in Latin America? With the aim of increasing the supply of beds for students who intend to study in Buenos Aires, through investBA and Study BA, the City launched a Promotion Regime that grants tax incentives for the remodeling and construction of student residences.
In addition, within the framework of this initiative, the City seeks to strengthen and enhance the Historic Center as a tourist and cultural reference point, promoting the local ecosystem and improving public space.

Those who develop new student residences will be able to choose between two possibilities:
On one hand, access to a benefit of up to 60% of the investment made as a tax credit applicable to the payment of gross income tax, if the projects have certain characteristics such as location in the Historic Centre of the City, the condition as small and medium-sized companies (SMEs) and / or investment in heritage-protected buildings.
On the other hand, those who build new residences may also opt for the exemption from paying the gross income tax for a maximum period of 24 months. In this case, the law also benefits certain characteristics of the projects, such as their status as a small and medium-sized company (SME) and / or their location in the Historic Centre of the City of Buenos Aires.
What are the benefits for remodeling existing residences?
Those who reform, expand and improve the equipment of existing residences or carry out a total or partial conversion of an establishment to a residence, will be able to access a benefit of up to 60% as a tax credit on the investment made. Within this maximum benefit, the law also prioritizes certain characteristics of the project, such as its location in the Historic Centre of the City and its status as a small and medium-sized company (SME).
