What is a ltd company buy-to-let?
A limited company buy-to-let mortgage is a loan from a lender to your limited company. This means that the company will own the property. If you incorporate your buy-to-let business as a limited company, you won’t pay income tax on the profits, you’ll pay corporation tax instead which is lower (currently 19 – 25 % depending on profits). This should significantly offset the halving of tax relief for higher band taxpayers.
Benefits of a ltd company buy-to-let
- Tax: Can be seen as more tax efficient than personal income, especially for higher rate or additional earners.
- Limited liability: If the company dissolves it is not forced to sell other personal assets.
- Increased potential borrowing: Other lenders for new personal mortgages may not take these into account as commitments and therefore may allow increased personal borrowing.
- Multiple shareholders on title deeds: Can make it easier to manage proportions of ownership and share of profits etc.
