Setting up a limited company for buy-to-let property investment

Overview of this guide

Are you thinking about setting up a limited company to invest in property but not sure if it’s right for you? Or are you ready to purchase your first buy-to-let and need to get a company set up pronto?

More and more investors are deciding to buy properties through a limited company. Running a company won’t be for everyone, but if you’re planning on building a property portfolio, such as buy-to-lets, HMOs and holiday lets, you’ll want to consider buying through a limited company.

Getting your company structure right from day one is really important. Depending on your long-term goals and portfolio growth plans, a limited company could make a big difference in the amount of tax you’ll pay and the speed at which you can grow your business.

We’ve created this guide to cover key things landlords need to consider before setting up a limited company for buy-to-let.

You’ll learn about:

  • The differences between owning property via a limited company and personally

  • The advantages and disadvantages of limited companies

  • How to set up a property investment company

  • Property company FAQs

We’ll also cover what you need to do after your company is set up to get you ready to buy when you find that perfect investment opportunity. And we’ll answer some common property company questions.
