Mortgage Interest Restriction

Term

A restriction on the tax relief landlords can claim for finance costs on residential properties at the basic rate of income tax.

Finance costs included:

The restriction was introduced to make the system fairer ensuring landlords with higher incomes could no longer receive the generous tax treatment, therefore it has been replaced with the 20% tax credit, so it’s restricted to the basic 20% tax rate.

It only affects you if you’re a higher rate taxpayer as you used to be able to claim back 40%.
