Moore Thompson: Offering a helping hand to landlords

In March we will be holding a free seminar to help landlords with the latest developments in the buy-to-let market.

Last year saw a major government shake-up of the booming buy-to-let property industry and there are a number of issues that landlords need to be aware of in the coming months.

During the Autumn Statement, the Chancellor announced a number of measures that could affect property investors.

Chief among these proposals is the introduction of a three per cent surcharge on stamp duty land tax (SDLT) for buy-to-let properties and second homes.

Alongside this new measure, George Osborne also announced that from April 2019 capital gains tax (CGT) on sold property will now be due within 30 days of the transaction; a significant departure from the current rules.

These new proposals follow on from further changes made earlier in the year during the Summer Budget that will see mortgage interest tax relief for buy-to-let investors decrease over the next five years.

Moore Thompson’s seminar will focus on the tax implications of buy-to-let properties, including:

  • Changes to relief for repairs
  • Changes to loan interest relief
  • Capital Gains Tax Implications
  • Furnished Holiday Letting Regime
  • Overseas non-resident landlords
