    new stamp duty rules and ltd company

    Im not even sure the answer is known but quick question:

    as a Ltd company, if a first property is bought as an BTL, is this liable to the new added stamp duty changes?
    as far as I was reading it, SDLT was incurred on the second property. However as the Ltd company is in theory its own person, would that apply?

    Watch out for any announcements in the 2016 budget on 16 March.

      The simple answer is YES Stamp Duty WILL APPLY. Please read 2.20 of the consultation document. This loophole should be plugged.

        If you do not inform the Tax Office and just move back to live in the BTL property, the "rental business with tax losses" , can remain in existence for three years.

        So I’ve been listening to some property investment seminars where the suggestion is to buy ‘good’ properties, regularly put the rent up and never sell them.
        The advice is to keep them forever so you do not pay CGT; re-finance regularly and either enjoy the money or re-invest it; pay minimal...

        But there's £750,000 mortgage lending to pay off when you die, so the "giving away" is more like a loan.

        I'm not expecting anyone to pay 1p more tax than they should, but I find it's sometimes interesting to replace "the taxman" and "HMRC" with "we/us"...

        Yes but people who do maths in your example could give the £750,000 away before death so beneficiaries get £400,000 extra and tax man loses ....

        It might be popular, but only to people who can't do maths.

        It's only a tax effective policy in the same way that having no money when you die means you don't pay that much inheritance tax.

        Ignoring the reliefs and personal thresholds for simplicity, if you die with a portfolio...

        Surely the business continued (the rent was still owed, even if not paid) and the business continued until the disposal of the property (assuming it was the only property in the business).

        Your interpretation is more appealing if it can be justified....

        Whoever gave you that advice doesn't understand how CGT works.
        You straight line the increase between purchase and disposal and you can deduct any time the property was your main residence (plus some additional months) as that period's gain is tax free.

        Any valuation when you start...
