Through a limited company wrapper, landlords can offset 100% of their interest payments against their tax bill, a benefit that is no longer accessible with personal buy-to-let mortgages.
Incorporating is especially attractive for higher and top-rate taxpayers. Instead of being taxed at a personal tax rate, the rental income for a limited company buy-to-let is taxed at a static corporation rate between 19% and 25%, depending on company profits.
Please be aware, Private Finance is not a tax advisor and this page does not constitute tax advice. Should you like us to introduce you to a specialist in this area, please let us know. Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage. The Financial Conduct Authority does not regulate commercial finance and some forms of buy-to-let mortgages.
The rise in demand for Limited Company Buy-to-Let
Since changes to mortgage interest rate relief in 2017 (known as Section 24), landlords have faced a continual reduction in tax relief through investments held in personal names.
Demand for limited company buy-to-let has shown significant growth, transforming this once niche lending type for large property investors into a mainstream specialist lending option.
High mortgage rates have stimulated further demand from personal to company owned buy-to-lets. The number of registered limited companies doubled between 2017 to 2022 to over 300,000 for the first time, based of research by Hamptons.
You will need to set up an SPV limited company with Companies House before arranging your limited company mortgage. It is also a good idea to organise a bank account for the SPV at the same time as this will be required when applying for a mortgage.
Consult a Tax Advisor
First, we recommend speaking with an expert tax advisor or accountant. They will explain how everything works so you can make an informed decision whether this is the right option for you. They will also ensure that the company is set up properly.

An SPV refers to companies specifically created for the sole purpose of holding and managing property assets, commonly used by landlords and property investors.
The companies are structured in a way that makes them distinct entities from their owners or directors.
By using an SPV, a limited company buy-to-let mortgage is required rather than a standard buy-to-let mortgage.
It is important to consider all aspects of this option compared to other types of buy-to-let mortgages.
Below we explain the pros and cons of limited company mortgages.

The lender criteria are fairly similar to standard buy-to-let mortgages however, there are a few differences. A few important points to consider are:
