Limited Company to buy new Buy to Let

Postby paulr101 » Tue Mar 24, 2020 10:07 am

I am buying my 3rd buy to let.
My total income will go above £50K (salary from job + rental income).

Is buying through a limited company a better option than buying in my personal name?

Are there any other option to avoid higher tax?

A limited company pays the extra 3% SDLT on a purchase. Look out if the value is over £500k with a 15% flat rate of SDLT and Annual Tax on Enveloped Dwellings to consider.
