    Is BTL still worth it for our circumstances?

    Hi all, my partner and I jointly own 5 btl's which generate around £30k income pa. The mortgages are around £9k pa. We hold the properties jointly and both earn about £25k each from our jobs. Will we be greatly affected by s24? Advice greatly appreciated.

    It depends what your longer terms goals are and what latent gains your portfolio has.

    i would very strongl6 suggest you get some tax structuring advice but pick an accountant who does not specialise in compliance. You want someone who think creatively about your situation and goals and not be biased towards or against one option.

    Hi Neil,

    Where does the £50k come from as I just read on the .gov site and it says the bracket for 19/20 and 20/21 lower rate limit is estimated to be at  £37.5k with £12.5k allowance. If I assume the OP's case at £25+£15k = £40k - £12.5k = £27.5k as income before mortgage and other expenditure.

    Correct me if this is incorrect.

    Hi SW1,

    From what I have read, listened to and talking to others this is what I have deduced. I assume your properties are not incorporated. That is another topic to go through.

    You probably have already worked out the interest you pay out of the total mortgage.

    On Basic rate payer

    You should be ok.  As after 2020 it will be 20% tax saving form Mortgage interest for all.

    On Higher rate payer

    You might loose 20% as After 2020 it will all of the interest will be 20%.

    It looks like you and partner are basic rate payer as suggested prior


    TALK TO A PROPERTY TAX ACCOUNTANT specialist.

    Assuming your pseudo name SW1 you are based in SW London. If you are go to the National Landlord Investment show in Olympia on 21st March and get advice from a Tax man. You will get the right advice as these guys deal with properties and will be more personal to you and your partners situation.

    This is never easy but I will give you my view

    if you stay a basic rate tax payer BTL can be good

    you both have a 50k limit from April

    so you can earn 100k

    if you bridge the 100k I am not sure BTL is wise

    my advice would be borrow as little as you can other wise s24 will hit you hard

    Hi, thanks for the advice. We are based in the north east - SW are my initials. We both work pt hence the salaries, but get by OK given that life is much cheaper up here. Our plan is to stay within the basic rate whilst increasing net assets. Thanks again.

    .... and of course another way to ensure your cashflow is maximised is to constantly review your mortgage rates with a specialist BTL Broker.
