For those of you who may be looking to invest in property before you have bought your main home, you might want to consider investing via a Limited Company to protect your first time buyer status for Stamp Duty Land Tax purposes and to avoid paying the extra 3% rates when buying your first home. The exemption from the extra 3% rates only applies for replacing your main residence, not buying the first one!

Whilst you will pay the extra 3% rate on the first purchase by a company, in our experience such investment properties tend to be much lower value than the purchase on your first home.
