In the last few years residential property deals in the UK have come under an unprecedented attack from the government, as it seeks to redress what it says as imbalances within the UK tax regime in regards to second homes.
Investors have had to deal with an additional three per cent Stamp Duty Land Tax charge, Capital Gains Tax increases on the sale of any properties where a person isn’t resident and a reduction in tax relief on mortgage interest.
To help, Mercury Homesearch, Wilson Wright Chartered Accountants and John Lamb Insurance Broking have come together to host an event to help landlords and property investors make sense of the changes and plan ahead to minimise potential liabilities.
- Jeremy Mcgivern from Mercury Homesearch will be talking about the impact on the residential property market, in terms of property prices, and likely activity going forward
- Craig Nicholson from Wilson Wright will be talking about what George Osbourne has done to the taxation of residential property and possible approaches for managing this
- Paula Steele from John Lamb Insurance Broking will be talking about the trust issues around using life insurance as a solution
The event, due to take place later this month at the Royal Institution in Albermarle Street, London W1 on Wednesday 27th April 2016 at 5.30, has already attracted significant interest, with more than 100 people registering for the series of short talks.
The event will be followed by a longer reception with drinks where guests will be able to speak with our team and network with fellow investors.
If you would like to attend the event or would like assistance with your property investments, please contact us.
