Abstract: This article discusses the tax implications of choosing a property acquisition method for real estate funds. As part of the analysis of real estate investment methods, data from 49 real estate funds registered with the Czech National Bank were processed. An analysis of the assets held and the type of returns of individual funds revealed that the most common method of investing in real estate is lending to a subsidiary real estate company. This method of real estate acquisition is based on the accounting effects of revaluation of assets in mergers of an acquisition company established by the fund and an acquired real estate company. At the same time, it is a method that maximizes the tax optimization of the participants and its choice could be assessed as purposeful in order to obtain a tax advantage.
