Checklist: Investing via a limited company

 

 

I first met RITA4Rent when chairing a lettings conference and they were first people to actual explain in a way I understood the impact of the mortgage interest relief changes for landlords. They give their time generously to us so we can answer your questions for free, thanks to their support for our checklists, our new Buy to Let Show and help me answer Q&As on LBC.

Anyone investing now or planning to invest in the future should speak to a company like RITA4Rent beforehand to be clear of the impact of adding property to current wealth.

Top three tips

  1. It is always tempting to complete your own tax affairs and save paying an adviser. However, your adviser is not just there to fill in forms. They should be advising you how to be as efficient as possible, and confirming whether there are any further claims which could be applicable to you. They should be minimising the chance of error and ensuring deadlines are not missed. They will ensure you navigate your way through the jargon and will be staying on top of the ever-changing tax rules through their CPD commitments. They should also be dealing with HMRC on your behalf, which will also minimise your stress levels! DIY may seem cost-effective in the short term, but obtaining strategic advice from a property tax expert can be more effective in the long term.

  2. It is always important to consider your overall tax position. You may be tempted to claim everything you are allowed to do, to decrease your personal tax liability. However this tends to focus on your short-term position. A property tax adviser should look at your overall long term position. For instance, if you plan to expand your portfolio, your mortgage lender may wish to see a certain level of reported income, so it may be more beneficial not to claim all the allowances available and ascertain the most efficient route forward.

  3. There is an old adage: “Don't let the tax tail wag the investment dog.” This is crucial and, as part of RITA4Rent’s ethos, it is about making the right decisions for the right reasons. No two taxpayers’ circumstances are the same, and there is no one-size-fits-all solution for you. It is important to review your position now, ascertain your future goals, and then map the way there in the most strategic manner. There will be tax changes along the way, and it is therefore important to work with your adviser to learn, change and adapt, to ensure your goals are achieved.
