    Should I purchase my next buy to let via company?

    Afternoon,

    I want to purchase another buy to let. I currently own one outright personally. Reading different websites about the new 3% buy to let charge on new purchases and how to get around the issues i'm still slightly confused.

    If i set up a ltd company and purchase one buy to let with cash (my loan to the company) do i have to pay the new 3% buy to let tax on top of the standard SDLT?

    Many thanks in advance

    Yes you will have to pay the extra 3% SDLT. Ltd companies are NOT excluded.

      Yes, company buying residential property pays the extra 3%

      You have to bargain harder with the seller and offer 3% less .

        Just joined PMC as Director and CS and on checking the documents handed to me for storage, there is a massive gap from 2010 to now! I have managed to find through other directors the meetings minutes for the past 9 years, however I am struggling to be given the full accounts. When I ask, I am told I...

        No you can't do that. If the tenant actually broke stuff and you sort it before the tenancy ends, then maybe. At the start of putting a property out to rent you can make tax related expense claims - you can't have a double bite, fixing it for yourself at the other end....

        Hi.

        I was wondering if anyone can provide me with advice.

        I used to live in my own house. I moved for work a few years ago and let my house (with consent to let).

        I'm planning to move back into my house which is currently still let. I've given the tenant three...

        The wear and tear allowance has been removed so you could expense the actual costs of the items as an expense, on a like for like basis, only if you are then renting it out, if it is returning back to a residential property then you couldn't.

        Hi Folks,

        I think its better for Ltd companies to have their annual accounts done by chartered accountant. Very difficult to get any bank loan without showing certified accounts.
