If they were shareholder there would be zero IHT because they own the shares in the company
if the Mother and Father owned the share there shares would be liable for IHT
This is the good thing from the company point of view shares can be passed to children to avoid IHT
without touching Mortgages ect

So everyone should make their children shareholders in their SPVs and LTDs before they die? Does it make any difference how the shares are apportioned?
If you live 7 years the shares are outside IHT but you have to take advice and think hard about it
let’s say you give your children the shares and they marry and then they devorce the spouse would be in titled to have there shares so you could be running your company with someone you don’t really know and then the ex marries a new hubby or wife
succession needs a lot of thought
I know one family company who did pass there shares to there son and he was killed in an air crash so his estate had to pay IHT
its so long term this is why I prefer a family trust even if there is an IHT bill
From a lending point of view, I have to disagree with most of what you have put except I agree they do not like BICT and action is being taken by lenders on this.
"Whilst not in themselves direct transactional costs, being a commercial borrower impacts you in the following ways"-
There are more lenders now and if you are portfolio landlord with 10+ then very little difference
No different than owning personally
Very few lenders do - as the guarantee is enough - if there is no guarantee they will as that is their security
Disagree I have clients with one company and multiple lenders
Same as in personal name although if covenanted then agree but plenty don't
Same as in personal name

When schemes go wrong:
Just because the person promoting a structure has implemented the structure it doesn’t make it technically robust.
And by the way, whilst incorporation “used to get clearance it dosent now” is TRUE but the thing you should take away from that is that there is a track record of acceptance to correct incorporation.
Even today there is no fear in writing to HMRC, explaining the incorporation planning to obtain clearance (even if they refuse) But I challenge anyone to write to HMRC to obtain clearance for hybrid planning.
HMRC are aware of the “Hybrid structure” and because it has not been disclosed they have many years to open an enquiry in the future.
Incorpration planning is a well trodden path and in my opinion the safest option if done correctly.
If you’re still convinced on hybrid planning I would advise taking your own independent counsel opinion.
The words your useing were the same words my tax advisor used
i am useing a ltd co and I am selling property I own into it with all the costs involved
it’s costly but it’s all above board
if I was going any other way I would worry HMRC would be knocking at my door in the years to come
Utter tosh. HMRC are made aware at outset that a mixed partnership exists, as is everyone else involved in this legitimate business structure.
Unlike some advisers, we do not hide behind anonymous screen names, and base everything we say and do on legal fact, HMRC guidelines and practice, and real time experience; and not unfounded factual wrong statements from those who should know better.
Moreover, everything we do for our clients is already in the public domain; the difference being is that we taken the time to research what is actually possible rather than taking things at face value.
As to writing to HMRC for advance clearance on mixed partnerships, what part of 'HMRC will not give advice/clearance if a) you’re asking HMRC to give tax planning advice, or to ‘approve’ tax planning products or arrangements, or b) clearance on matters of fact, such as if certain activities constitute a business, don't you understand?
