    Rental losses and S24

    Hi All

    I have large rental losses brought forward and just wondered how they interact with the new S24 legislation.

    I am concerned that the way the calculation will work means that I effectively do not get any relief for this years mortgage interest.

    if anyone is in the know and would care to share that would be very much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    Carried forward losses, if applied, reduce income (the loss is a cost).
    I don't really see how that interacts with the changes in interest relief, though.
    When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
    Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

      I agree with jpkeates. Have you filed self-assessment before? Losses as you describe are entered separately and deducted from income.

        Previously, taxable profit = rental income- property repairs - mortgage interest = Remainder charged at 20% or 40%

        New taxable profit =rental income - property repairs = Remainder charged at 20% or 40% minus Loan Interest x 35% ( reducing 5% to 2020).

        If you have rental loss from last year , then taxable profit = rental income- property repairs - last year loss = Remainder.

          So for myself if I have 20k loss brought forward. 10k rental income - 1k repairs and 7k mortgage interest then I will have 20 - (10-1) = 11 c/f.

          Is this correct?

            The latest tax return will ask for rental income details for year ending 5 April 2017.

            Rental Income = 10K , repairs 1K and b/f 20K ( from April 2016)

            Profit/Loss = 10K-1K = 9K - (20K) = (11K) c/f

              How did you manage to get a £20k loss against £10k income?

                I used to have a 5 bedroom property that used to cost me £1,700 per month if it was empty for a month. I have now sold this property and still have the losses remaining.

                  Blimey, that's a lot of interest.

                  It's an interesting point (and one that I am not qualified to answer).

                  The restriction on the tax relief available for interest is quite specific - and doesn't seem to accommodate a situation where the costs of the tax cause a loss that has been carried forward.

                  The loss being carried forward is separated from the cause of the loss, on your return it's just a loss, so it would be very hard for HMRC to see where the loss arose without doing a lot of cross checking.
                  And a carried forward loss isn't addressed in the new restriction rules, so it might be legitimate to treat the loss as simply any other loss.

                  It means people would end up paying less tax, so I imagine that HMRC wouldn't see it that way if they noticed it, though.

                    Thanks for your reply I am comfortable that the loss brought forward will not be affected by the new legislation.

                    I think what I was hoping was that I would somehow get some relief for the interest that I have paid in the current year.

                      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...

                      Hi,

                      I currently have a property rented out in my own name with a fair bit of equity around 50% LTV this is actually a repayment mortgage which i'm looking to switchover to a interest only. When i do this i'm also taking money out of the property to put towards another which i'm looking...

                      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.
