Limited Company Mortgages

Limited Company Mortgages

Taking out a buy to let mortgage as a limited company is very different to taking one out as an individual as it’s a commercial deal.

Though it may be slightly more complicated to set up, it does come with advantages.

  • You pay corporation tax on rental income, not income tax. There is no upper threshold as opposed to personal income tax and it stands at 19%.
  • You can offset many expenses that you can’t with a privately-owned rental property.
  • Limited liability if the company dissolves it’s not forced to sell personal assets.
  • Retaining any profits within your business protects tax liabilities. This helps if and when you want to expand your portfolio.

More people are choosing to buy to let through limited companies for these advantages.

This in turn has seen an increased demand for lenders in this market.
