Why use an Accountant?

Using a buy-to-let accountant has big benefits. There are three main ways to purchase a buy-to-let property, either through personal ownership, through a standard Limited Company or through a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) which is a simple type of company that can be set up to hold a property. Due to recent changes in legislation, many are considering the incorporation/SPV route; there are a number of benefits in this, including being able to fully deduct mortgage and finance charges.

Purchasing and managing your property through a limited company brings with it the responsibilities of being a company Director which include producing accounts and submitting returns to Companies House and HMRC. Retaining a specialist buy-to-let accountant experienced in handling buy-to-let businesses can ensure that you get the right advice from the outset and take this admin off your plate.
