Buy-to-Let Landlord Tax Challenge Rejected

Authored on November 25th, 2016

The legal challenge to changes in the tax regime relating to buy-to-let properties has failed, despite the backing of a £180,000 'crowd fund' and the pleadings of barrister Cherie Blair.

The case was pursued on the basis that the changes, which limit the expenses that buy-to-let landlords can set against their income for tax purposes, are unfair. In particular, the change which limits deductions for loan interest, which would be allowable in any normal business context, was considered by the challengers to be contrary to established principles of UK taxation.
