Interest rates are in line with residential mortgage deals.

    Anyone have any experience of this?
    Sorry, no personal experience of this.
    However, if the company is regarded as owning the property, wouldn't any profit made if/when the property is sold be taxable as a company profit?

    Yes - with no CGT allowance to play with.

    Id thought about doing this. Not least because if your paying 1300 or so a month in rent that's 15k your business is handing over to another person for the privilege of using their flat. So if your company owns the flat, yes you'll ultimately pay CGT on the sale of the flat but it's got to be be better than handing 15k a year to another person. So your 15k a year pays off the mortgage and your business ends up with a very expensive asset.
    Rule Number 1 - Assuming that you have a valid contract in place always try to get your poo onto your timesheet, provided that the timesheet is valid for your current contract and covers the period of time that you are billing for.

    I preferred version 1!

    I don't see how they can do that. Ultimately the mortgage is the mortgage, "owned" by whoever arranged it. "putting it in the company name" makes no sense to me.

    edit: i.e if the mortgage is in the company name then it is their mortgage (at whatever rates etc are available). An exisiting lender could potentially agree to transit the product of course. But it is in their gift.

If I am allowed to do this, would this require a specific buy to let mortgage?

    Thanks in advance

    There is a lot of red tape around what you are looking to do. This would not fit a standard buy to let mortgage, the property could be bought by your limited company but would still have its limits, its more a second residence by the sounds of things. I would suggest a specialist broker to discuss the situation fully. Upfront advice is generally free and can at least point you in the right direction even if you choose not to proceed with the purchase

    Couldn't you just set up a BTL company. Then the contracting company rents the property from the BTL company.

    You could, I couldn't tell you how or if it would be worth doing, that's not my expertise I'm afraid, worth a discussion with your accountant
