So what exactly is a "hybrid corporate arrangement"? The following bullets (mailing from Tax for landlords ltd) describe the author's view of benefits. Other companies offer similar.
4. indicates mortgage is kept in landlord's name, 2. Either assumes less that £43k taxable income and no NI or hints at a ltd company (20% corporation tax rate), but (excluding first £5k dividend) extracted money is taxed, 3. IMHO might need a caveat saying "assuming you don't sell or transfer ownership"! If a ltd co. owned the property/ies (appears not to be the case), transferring shares can help minimise those taxes. 7. Does "insured solution" suggest insurance is available in case the scheme fails? Tax avoidance scheme* providers are required to register schemes with HMRC and we need declare whether one has been used in out tax returns.
If any Property Tribes members are considering such a scheme, could I suggest after you've had the "sell" that you share the full details here so we can help you critique the advantages and drawbacks of the scheme being proposed?

HMRC tax avoidance scheme guidance
* This may or may not be such a scheme.
I noticed this promotion as well. Thank you for posting it for community scrutiny.
Update from original author:
Seems by the lack of comments that this approach is not proving popular! I came across some HMRC anti-avoidance legislation that gives examples of "hybrids" used for avoidance of taxation and might be interesting for anyone considering this strategy. Be prepared, these are lengthy documents!
In summary it appears the schemes seek to exploit the differences between the way different entities (you as a taxpayer, a ltd. co., partnership, etc) are taxed. A single transaction (loan or property purchase?) resulting in two entities (both owned by the same person) making separate claims for tax relief whereas HMRC ideally intends just a single relief. This appears more common between different countries but it appears it might also be possible just within the UK.
Google "hybrid 13 March 2005 " to find anti-avoidance measures introduced in that budget.
And if that does not cure your insomnia, this definitely will:

Thanks for this up-date GG.However the link does not work so I replaced it with what I think to be the correct page. Please check and confirm.
Read between the lines in this video:
I reckon the only way for Southern LL to avoid S24 is to sell up and then buy back into the market.
If I had London property I would be selling up
Then keep my cash available to buy fewer properties via corporate set up.
Possibly buying in the South but outside London.
Or pay the S24 tax by increasing rents
There is no other realistic alternative for a Southern LL!
I reckon prices will reduce when the full horrors of S24 cause LL throw in the towel.
Do it now while prices are fairly stable.
I'm curious about the mailing from Tax for landlords ltd as mentioned by the OP.
I've Googled that name and can't find anything.
Anotherjohn, Checking my old emails, it appears the company was"lesstaxforlandlords"....here is the original email (I am not endorsing this company BTW)
Thinking of Transferring Your Properties to a Limited Company?
Whilst incorporation (either directly or via a temporary LLP) might be the answer for some, for most it is absolutely the WRONG thing to do.Here's why incorporation is wrong...There are several reasons including (but not limited to):
Other solutions such as hybrids, often offer a more favourable (and tried and tested) solution, without any of the associated costs you get with incorporation.So if you are thinking about incorporating, then please read this short article on Landlord Incorporation.

Thank you Goodguy.
Has anyone signed-up for a hybrid structure?
