Welcome to our latest edition of LT4L news, where you’ll find information on optimism for the UK housing market, views on what 2019 looks like for landlords and much more.

Olympia Government Panel: Watch the whole debate


On the 21st March at the National Landlord Investment Show, the Rt Hon Iain Duncan Smith MP joined a panel of experts, including Less Tax 4 Landlords founding director Tony Gimple, to discuss Government policy, intervention and the future of the Buy to Let market.

Chaired by BBC politics presenter Andrew Neil, the panel also featured Paul Mahoney (Nova Financial Group) and Sarah Davidson (Knowledge and Product Editor at the MailOnline’s money section, This is Money).

The debate ranged over a wide variety of pertinent topics, such as Brexit and housebuilding, as well as the obstacles homeowners and landlords currently face.

The panel’s three expert panellists were unanimous in voicing optimism for the UK housing market over the next five years, with some of them believing market fundamentals to be strong and supportive, despite apparent political uncertainty in the present.

Mr Duncan Smith, former leader of the Conservative party, used the debate as an opportunity to voice his concern about housing policies implemented in recent years. He believed former Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne’s economic policies “had led to landlords scaling back or even leaving the sector entirely”.

If you missed the debate, you can now watch the full 86 minutes here.

Less Tax 4 Landlords also exhibited at the event, and we were thrilled to meet so many landlords and aspiring property investors on the day. If you connected with us at the event, either at our stand or at one of our Tax Talks, we’ve put together a short article explaining what to expect next.

Questions for Tony in this episode include:

1) My accountant says that by 2020/21 my tax bill will be higher than my profit. Could this be true?

2) Is it true that because of Section 24 and the new Prudential Regulation Authority buy-to-let rules, lenders now want to see business plans and mortgages for all properties? Is it easier if I am a Ltd company?

Questions for Tony in this episode include:

1) Where do I stand on Capital Gains Tax if I try to buy a Buy To Let property with cash, put it in my children’s names (all under 18) and use their annual tax free income allowance?

What our clients say…

“I first encountered Less Tax 4 Landlords at a Property Conference along with other rival companies. During their presentation I quickly realised that their eye-catching slogan (Less Tax 4 Landlords) was part of a much bigger and extensive organisation, supported by three professional companies including The Bailey Group Chartered Accountants which made them stand out from the competition as they provided a comprehensive range of professional Landlord services that others did not.

Over several meetings with LT4L I learned to understand the importance of a business plan, business model and business structure through to succession planning. When they had opened my eyes to the bigger picture I decided to invest time and money to be part of their community.
