The client wanted to purchase a new house for his family valued at £2.1 million. He owned a trading company which had £700,000 retained profit in cash which he wanted to use as a deposit, however to remove the cash from the company would have meant paying a significant amount of income tax on the dividends. To avoid this, our client considered purchasing the property in the business’ name but recent changes to legislation mean those who own a residential property in the name of a non-natural person face possible annual charges and potential capital gains tax liabilities in the future.
As a solution, were able to arrange a mortgage of £1.47 million with a private bank, the client depositing £700,000 in an interest-bearing account in the company name. He then pledged this cash by signing a personal guarantee for a £700,000 loan in his own name against the commercial cash deposit. This loan will form the £630,000 deposit for the house purchase and will help fund the stamp duty of £105,000.
This solution was able to save the client significant amounts in income tax and removed him from the uncertainties surrounding the government’s plans to change ownership of residential property in corporate structures.
