If you have a buy to let portfolio and intend to use this as a long term investment plan it’s worth considering moving your properties into a limited company scenario.

What are limited company buy to let mortgages?

They occur when you purchase an investment property in the name of your limited company, usually via a special purpose vehicle. The main reason for doing this is the tax advantages over holding property in your personal name.

Don't get caught out

It is important to note that transferring your properties is not a legal option; the properties must be sold at the market value which means some or all of the following additional costs:

  • stamp duty land tax at the higher rate will be payable on the purchase by the limited company, this is because you will be selling the property and your limited company will be purchasing i.e. change of legal ownership
  • capital gains tax owed by you personally when you sell the property
  • early repayment charges if you are still tied into your existing buy to let mortgage.
