  • Main home mortgage interest deducible against commercial investment income?

    Hi all,
    If I own my main residence outright and obtain a mortgage on it to finance a commercial investment property is the mortgage interest an allowable cost against the commercial rental income?

    If the draw down of the mortgage loan is on the same date as the purchase date of the commercial property, the mortgage interest should be allowed as expenses against rental income.. But you should check with your accountant before you proceed.

    For any owner occupied property ( and never rented out ) , there is no tax to pay on the capital gain.

    Hi All

    Both myself and my wife each have a number of BTL props in our sole names.

    If you buy a new home before you have sold the present home, you should expect to pay the extra 3% sdlt.

    But current rules, you are given 36 months grace period to sell the old home and claim back the extra 3% paid on the new home

    I will be a brand new landlord soon and wasn't sure if what I'm doing is correct (best for tax reasons)

    You have just bought a BTL in May 2019 ( this month) so you will be reporting the rental profit ( 2019-2020 ) some time during April - Oct next year . Submit a tax return your self or...

    Thanks for the info guys. I guess speaking with an accountant is the next step. Have any of you used anyone from Manchester that you would recommend?
