Our 5 Strategies
Designed to accommodate your current property tax situation and future needs
2 Main Issues
Additional 3% Stamp Duty on Buy-To-Let
Reduction in Interest Relief
The Solution: Our Strategies
1:HOW TO AVOID THE ADDITIONAL 3% STAMP DUTY
– Purchase of mixed residential and non-residential use
– Purchase of property but under adult child’s name
– Securing main residence exemption
1. Purchaser is buying property which they intend to adopt as their main residence and is replacing main residence that is sold within the previous three years.
2. Purchaser’s former main residence is sold within three years after the new main residence is purchased. Higher charges are applied on this situation and a refund will have to be claimed later.
2:HOW TO RECEIVE FULL MORTGAGE INTEREST RELIEF AT 40%
Restrictions do not apply to commercial properties, acquisitions of mixed residential and non-residential and properties that qualify as furnished holiday lets. Limited companies also receive full loan interest deduction. The interest relief restrictions only apply to individuals and residential property.
3:HOW TO PAY NO TAX ON £2,000 AND MORE
If you decide to incorporate your business, you can take out £2,000 profits as dividends for each shareholder. Anything above this amount is subject to the additional dividend tax rate of 7.5%.
4:HOW TO SUBSTANTIALLY REDUCE YOUR CAPITAL GAINS TAX
The new policy of Capital Gains Tax reduces the standard rate from 18% to 10% and the higher rate from 28% to 20%.
If you have a limited company, corporation tax of 20% will fall to 17% in 2020.
5:HOW TO SUBSTANTIALLY REDUCE YOUR INHERITANCE TAX
Establish an employer trust – a discretionary trust for the benefit of employees and their family. The shares would then be transferred from the company to the trust.
In effect, the value would be held in a trust with the full value being immediately outside of the estate of any person. This can be achieved without causing any tax charges.
