    Will I have tp pay tax?


    Can anyone help me with this question?

    I am going to university in September and renting my house out to a couple of friends of mine while I am away for three years.

    Will I have to pay any sort of tax? I am not renting my house out for profit, I am just renting it out to cover the mortgage.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Many Thanks

    Is this house your only home? Is it being used as your residence? Will you be renting a property for yourself to live in when you go to the Uni? Will you be using your current home during vacations etc?

    If the answer to all the above is YES:

    (1) You should nominate your current home as your MAIN residence (as against the uni residence) for CGT purposes. Such a nomination needs to be made within 2 years of moving into your Uni residence. This preserves the PPR exemption for your home for if and when you come to sell it in due course even if you don't live there fulltime.

    (2) You are allowed upto £4,500 (could be £4,250) 'rent a room relief' pae tax year. If your rental income is more than this, you could calculate the profit in the normal way, ie rents less mortgage interest and other allowable expenses etc. Any excess is redused by your annual personal allowances if you don't have any other income. All in all, it seems that you will not have any income tax liability.

      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.
