An investment in property involves complex financial issues. One of these is certainly tax. You will be liable to pay tax on any profits that you make from your investments whether you sell your property or rent it out. You will also pay Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) on property purchases over £125,000. It is important that you pay the correct amount of tax. It is equally crucial that you claim all of the allowances that you are entitled to in order to minimise your tax liability. It is essential that you fully understand the taxation system in the UK.
You will also have to decide whether it is most beneficial for you to proceed with your investments as an individual (or couple) or as a limited company. Modus Accountants can help you make the right decision, call 01993 225030 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
