UK Limited Company Buy-to-Let Mortgages

Until 2015, there were fewer advantages to owning a property in a company as opposed to owning it in your own name. However, changes to the treatment of mortgage interest introduced after the 2015 budget made the Limited Company route far more appealing for any UK Expat or Foreign National looking to invest in Buy-to-Let property.

In the last 7 years over 30,000 UK Limited Companies have been established exclusively for Buy-to-Let purposes, mainly driven by legislation reducing mortgage interest relief for landlords holding property in a personal name. As a top-rate taxpayer, the tax payable via a Limited Company will be lower than the tax on individual income.

UK Limited Company Mortgages – Frequently Asked Questions

The simple answer is yes. To understand the options available to you, speak with a specialist broker who can help with your UK Limited Company.

As of 6 April 2020 landlords can no longer deduct mortgage interest and other allowable costs from their rental income before calculating their tax liability. It will be restricted to the basic rate of income tax which is currently 20%.

Relief will be given as a reduction in tax liability instead of a reduction to taxable rental income. This means that your taxable income will rise, especially if you’re a higher or additional rate tax payer.

Hence many expats and overseas investors are now looking to UK Limited Companies and purchasing property with a UK Limited Company Mortgage.

Whatever your overall plan is, our mortgage advisers can help you understand the options available to you.

Buying a property to rent out in a limited company requires a UK Limited Company mortgage for which the company registers the correct business activity known as Standard industry Classifications or SIC Codes.

Most lenders require the company to be defined using the following Standard industry Classifications (SICs}:
: Buying and selling own real estate
68209: Other letting and operating of owned or leased real estate
68320: Management of real estate on a fee or contract basis

The company also requires a current bank account for the mortgage direct debit. A new SPV Company with no assets or income can be set up within 24 hours and is an ideal vehicle for your BTL mortgage. You can also lend money to the SPV for the deposit from your personal assets.

Mortgage Lenders prefer to lend to Limited companies (sometimes referred to as SPV’S) which only own and rent out a property. Whilst you can obtain BTL Mortgages in a Trading Company, the product options are limited as lenders see other activities as a potential liability.

Applications from Limited companies/ SPV’s tend to be quicker and more straightforward as underwriters find it easier to understand that the company has one sole business income stream. Trading companies can be complex because of the various income streams and as such, there are many more mortgage options available for Limited companies/ SPV’s than for trading companies.

Whatever your overall plan is, our mortgage managers can help you understand the options available to you.

We were very happy with Liquid Expat Mortgages. After living in Spain and hoping to buy a U.K. property we were advised by most that we wouldn’t qualify for a U.K. mortgage. Never the less LEM said they could help and we were supported from start to finish with a good mortgage offer on the table. Liam and Claire were fantastic throughout the whole experience and never hesitated to offer advice and support as we needed. We can’t thank them enough for all their help and time spent with us even to the end where Claire was helping our solicitor to ensure all would go through on completion day with the lender. Our solicitor was also recommended by LEM and was also fantastic. Our sale completed smoothly on the day and with no issues. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend. Thank you again for everything.

We have been using the services of Liquid Expat for over six years and cannot recommend them enough. The level of broker professionalism, expat mortgage knowledge, and, most of all--transparent communication--is exceptional. As expats, it's even more challenging trying to maneuver the requirements and products in the UK market; additionally, the current climate has made it even more difficult. Liquid Expat will help you with this! To give some shoutouts--John Squires is always our first point of contact, helping to identify the best products available, and his knowledge speaks for itself. Then there's the incredible duo of Claire Aspin and Liam Saul--they are absolutely brilliant. So patient, thorough, and attentive to all of the details that any non-trained eye might miss. Claire and Liam were invaluable to our recent remortgage. We have, and will continue to, recommend Liquid Expat to anyone seeking the highest level of expat mortgage advice. Thank you!

Nicole Gallagher of Liquid Mortgages was very professional and knowledgeable in sourcing a lender for me to re-finance my flat in London. she got me the offer letter from the bank by coordinating to obtain all the required documents in a very efficient manner. I was happy with the offer & how Nicole dealt wit my case and would recommend her to my friends and family. Nicole went above and beyond to assist me as a client, when we hit a road block due to solicitors not being in a position to complete in time before the finance offer expired. but Nicole worked tirelessly to obtain an extension on the finance offer to make the completion successful. this was impressive considering the interest rates were going up and a new offer would have costed me thousands of pounds more. Nicole is an asset to any organisation and highly recommend her ability and excellent customer service.

Hi. My mortgage application was handled by Ms Nicole Gallagher, and she was absolutely brilliant. Any questions I had were answered straight away with a full explanation. Throughout the process, I was kept in the loop and advised on the best course of action. Even my solicitor has praised Nicole for her efficency and super quick responses. On two occasions, the solicitor of the seller questioned my intention to buy the property. Nicole replied and defended me and set him straight. The email was so well written that I couldn't have said it any better myself. Professional but straight the point! Nicole is excellent at what she does and did a brilliant job in handling my application. She was very efficient and always replied to my emails straight away. I will definitely be recommending Liquid Expats to my friends and suggest they ask for Nicole to handle their application. If in the future we decide to buy another property, I will definitely be asking for Nicole and only to handle my application. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Nicole for all her guidance and support. Her attention to detail and her professional advice. I feel she went above and beyond in making me feel part of the process by keeping me informed at each stage. She is a credit to your company and has set the bar very high! Thank you Nicole. Wishing you all the best for the future. Mr Wahid Fazil 5 Fountain Park Westhoughton Bolton BL5
