Hi Mark

Can I please ask you to elaborate on your comment that "if you plan to reinvest...then it makes a lot of sense to pay the lower tax on retained profits".

I am thinking of reinvesting through my Limited Company in a second property. This company has already made an unrealised gain of 100k on its 1st investment property. An opportunity now exists to sell that property and reinvest in a new property.

I understand that if I sell but don't reinvest then the company will need to pay Corporation tax this year on the realised gain,but I am wondering whether this dan be deferred if I reinvest? Is this what you mean?

Hi Tom

I was referring to the reinvestment of profits from income. In a company these are currently taxes at 20% which will reduce to 18% by 2020, whereas you could pay as much as 45% tax on profits from income in your own name.

Always consult a qualified and insured accountant for tax advice.
