Landbay adds service for landlords transferring to limited company SPVs

Specialist buy-to-let lender Landbay plans to launch a comprehensive accounting, reporting and tax compliance service for professional landlords looking to hold properties in limited company special purpose vehicles.

The service will come with a £750 fixed annual fee and in return, Landbay will offer customers access to tax advice on transferring properties from an individual name into a company, income extraction, transfer of shares, and liquidating an SPV.

Landbay managing director Paul Brett (pictured) says: “Landlords have been hit by a wave of tax and regulatory changes through 2016/17, and brokers have had to upskill quickly to keep up. As a specialist lender, we want to make this transition as straightforward as possible for brokers and their customers, which is why this service is such an important one for us as a lender.

“From discussions I’ve had with intermediaries it is clear that tax and compliance is an area where specialist advice is urgently needed, so we’re connecting the dots to offer access to competitively-priced professional expertise.”

Finance is only one hurdle for small developers

The housebuilding market in its current form simply isn’t working. We are completely over-reliant on the biggest players in the industry – the largest nine are responsible for more than 50 per cent of the new homes built in the UK. But there is a reluctance to do more, particularly in this uncertain post-Brexit world. And with […]

A tailored approach to protection

By Ian Smart, Product Architect, Royal London In an ideal world, clients would be able to afford as much protection cover as they wanted, but few would describe current times as anything approaching ideal.
