    Buy to Let on Property Company or my personal name?

    I'm in two minds whether to buy a property on my name or my company
    After i develop it, i will make a £250,000 equity uplift - i plan to add a large loft and large rear extension
    It would be a big property, so i could also rent it out as rooms, generating a healthy yield
    So i'm in two minds
    Here are the details
    Acquisition Price: £700,000
    Borrowing: £500,000
    Deposit: £200,000
    Monthly interest free mortgage: £1000pm
    Rentals as rooms: £5000pm

    What tax would i be paying on my name? I know for the company its corporation tax

    I know i'd pay more tax in my name, but with the equity uplift i could re mortgage and acquire another property
    But is it worth the extra tax i'll be paying?
    Thoughts please, thank you v much...

    Your post doesn't provide enough info.

    You need to say how many rooms you are looking at renting out. Is the room rate £500pm? You've posted £5k per month.
    You haven't given figures for your conversion/developing costs.


      You need also to indicate if you hold any other BtL properties, whether you are a higher rate tax payer, have you established whether the local authority will grant a potential HMO license.

      I agree with Claymore that there is a notable lack of information to enable a more qualified response to be given.

        Evening all,

        I am currently looking to move house and also have a rental property that has around £200k equity in it.

        The rental house had consent to let and on a repayment mortgage and has 3 years to go until I can switch deals.

        I have spoken to a mortgage broker...

        The taxman's method of calculating :

        Capital gain is the Sale Price ( say £200K ) minus Purchase Price ( say £130K ) = £70K capital gain.

        But buying and selling expenses are allowable and include the conveyancing cost : say £1K plus estate agent'...

        Thank you for your kind words JP and the tips re using an accountant. Having been taxed at source all my working life this is very useful information. I will look round for an accountant. A friend of mine who is also a landlord as well as having a day job has one, so maybe a personal recommendation...

        Thank you for your work in the NHS!

        I've found that the first sessions were the most valuable in terms of what could be saved, and the value has diminished slightly and the costs of the returns being done has stayed the same/slightly increased, so it feels like it's less worth it.

        I use one page of a spreadsheet for all the income and expenses and have other pages which automatically summarise the data property by property.

        I been looking at spreadsheets to list my expenses and every template I find seems to allocate expenses per house ie 5 houses = 5 separate sheets whereas I just put everything down on one sheet.
        I would like to know if I have been doing it wrong all these years.
        ​​​​​​Any help...

        When you sell the property, you can't retain any of the equity, so that doesn't really make any sense to me.
        On disposal, the mortgage will end and have to be repaid.

        The value of the rental property when first let is also a limit to the amount of the loan against which interest can...

        Gordon999 thanks for your reply. In regards to CGT so if I was due to sell a house I could request to remove all the equity before the sale and wouldn’t be subject to CGT... that doesn’t seem right.

        In regards to switching my mortgage from repayment to and interest only... would I incur...

        Its good to keep a separate sheet for each property because when you come to sell one house , you may want to show the rental and expenses records for one house to prospective buyers.
