Buy to Let / Commercial Mortgages

Buy to Let (BTL) landlords are those buying a residential property with a view of letting (renting) it to someone else as a form of investment. BTL mortgages are very similar to regular mortgages, but with some differences as higher fees or usually higher interest-only mortgage rates. In Charles Crown Financial you will find advice and resources, being explained all the options from start to finish. We will consider carefully issues as rental cover ratios, yield and monthly rental income to determine the profitability of your investment and find the maximum loan available for you. If you have a portfolio of properties, we provide a professional review to improve the overall performance of your investments.

SPV - special purpose vehicle

A SPV is a way of holding business property through a limited company rather than the individual holding the property in their own name.  Experts predict that changes to the taxation of BTL property  are likely to lead to an increase in the number of property-letting SPVs. An SPV can claim the same running expenses as an individual landlord, but in addition, an SPV can claim mortgage interest in full as a business expense.

Corporation tax – as companies, SPVs pay corporation tax on rental income received (after expenses) at 19 per cent. Income tax on salary and dividends – it is up to the board of directors to decide whether to distribute some or all of the income to shareholders as salary and / or dividends. The company is not obliged to pay a salary or a dividend to directors; it can retain the income (less corporation tax) in its bank account. This means that the directors can decide if and when to pay dividends, allowing them to control the amount of tax they pay. Changing ownership is relatively simple, as SPV shares can be sold to a new owner without the property being transferred. Companies are able to claim expenses not available to individual owners.
