    Capital Gains Tax Change April 2020

    As from April 6th 2020 any capital gains tax due on property sales has to be paid within 30 days of the sale of the property, only found this out yesterday on the news section on landlord zone.

    This has been in the news for sometime so should not really come as a shock. It is our duty as LLs to remain abreast of the changes in law so make sure you read articles on sites such as this, regularly, to keep up to date.

    If you missed this piece of legislation are you aware of the changes to EPC regulations, electric safety checks, mortgage relief, licensing regulations in your area? The PRS is no longer a place to make easy money with no knowledge of the law!

      £5 says almost all landlords will be somewhere not complying with some aspect of the well over 100 laws & regulations governing LL/T matters: Probably minor infringement, unintentional: I'm certain it's true for me & my esteemed lettings agents!
      I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

        I started my limited company a year before buying the first property, then bought a second 2 months later, a third 3 months after that, a fourth 5 months after that and so on to where I am now. Our lenders have never said they want a separate company per property. Ive never heard of that, if it were...

        I don't think we disagree.

        The OP has one property and is looking to buy a second.
        At that point in that business, lenders will want a company per property.

        There's a point where that ceases to be the case, when the portfolio gets big enough, or, presumably when someone...

        i concur with this, once you get over 4 properties, they consider you to be a portfolio landlord and want to start seeing cashflow forecasts before lending to make sure the company is buoyant. Directors guarantees each time but no limits on number of properties or number of dofferent lenders....

        This is not true in my experience. I currently have eight properties in the same company, across a number of different mainstream BTL lenders, and none of them have batted an eyelid at the number.

        Where I have known lenders worry about the company is it doesn't have the correct SIC code...

        Depends to a great degree on tax regulations over the coming years. We only know what the rules are today, not what they'll be in future e.g. when you retire

        I expect chancellors to cut back on the advantages of people owning property through companies (well, wouldn't you if you were chancellor)...

        1. No. You have not sold the property yet

        2. 19% on profit by company.

        3. Seek advice from accountant.
