    Default Personal BTL equity to LtdCo

    Person X has amount A loanable equity in BTL1 held personally. X now wants to release equity A, add cash B and buy BTL2 via a newly setup sole director Ltd Company.

    LtdCo can claim the interest on amount A (and B) as it is a business. So far so good.

    Now, this interest will be earnings for X. This income from A will however take X to higher rate tax, defeating the original purpose.
    Is there a way to handle this?
    e.g. can LtdCo pay interest on A directly to the bank, therefore X not touching it, and therefore not taxable on self-assessment?

    As a side question: amount A is much higher than the original loan with which BTL1 was bought(now paid back). Does this mean that the interest on amount A cannot be claimed as expense in self assessment anyway?

    Person X ( or You ) needs to seek expert advice from a professional tax accountant , and not rely on comments from forumers about complex tax issues. The cost of tax advice can be charged to rental income.
