Tax efficient property ownership outside a Ltd company?

I am keen to make use of my personal CGT allowances and maintain the flexibility of owning property outside a ltd company.

Is there a way for me to own the majority of a property, even though I am dependent on my wife’s salary to gain lending?

Many thanks

Richard

Editors note:

From our main Tax Planning tab >> https://www.property118.com/tax/

If you are married, the first level of tax planning to consider is a restructure of your income to optimise all available basic rate tax allowances with your spouse (currently £45,000 each) and then to purchase any further properties in a company. The tax changes to mortgage interest relief will only affect you if your total taxable income (including mortgage interest) exceeds £45,000 a year. The Chancellor of the Exchequer confirmed in the 2017 Spring Budget Statement that this figure will increase to £50,000 by the year 2020. Restructuring income between spouses is achieved by changing the percentage of beneficial ownership of your rental properties.”

I am curious as to the point of CGT annual allowance. Would you explain this. little more to help my understanding?

Hi Simon

I cannot see any reference to annual CGT allowance, hence I cannot understand you question. Are you able to make your question clearer please?

Could Simon be referring to the first sentence of the readers question? "I am keen to make use of my personal CGT allowances"
