This is a great post and demonstrates one size doesnt fit all. I would also suggest you take a big picture look at what you are doing / being advised.

By all means sell of non performing properties and restructure gearing if it is the optimal thing to do for your business

My advice is take take a wholistic look at all taxes and work several calculations out to find the optimal solution. Mark will do that as part of the process.

Examples of what I mean are
1> Continue as you are until all personal IT losses used up
2> Would you pay less total tax IT CT CGT SDLT by incorporating before all losses used up?
3> What is the optimal timing to begin the process so as IT are used up it switches within a very small timeframe so you arent clobbered with Section 24
4> What possible changes could impact your decisions
5> Depending on age / family circumstances how does this sit with your IHT planning a tax often over looked when worrying about today we forget the whole of life tax cost

Hope thats useful food for thought... Read More
