The Big Landlord Tax Increase

How to Beat the Cut in Mortgage Tax Relief

By Carl Bayley BSc FCA and Nick Braun PhD

The Tax Change in a Nutshell

Starting in April 2017 tax relief on interest and other finance costs paid by residential landlords is being reduced over a period of four years.

This tax change is known as “Clause 24” or “Section 24” because it is contained in Section 24 of the 2015 Finance Act (No.2). 

Eventually landlords will not enjoy 40% or 45% tax relief on any of their interest payments. Instead tax relief will be capped at 20%.

The way the change has been designed means that many landlords who are currently basic-rate taxpayers will end up as higher-rate taxpayers, paying tax at 40%.

Many landlords will face additional tax "penalties" including losing their child benefit, losing their income tax personal allowance and paying tax at the 45% additional rate. In some cases the result will be a significant drop in income (50% in one of our examples).

The good news is there are lots of things you can do to reduce the tax sting!
