Buy-to-let investors can claim tax relief on energy efficiency measures – but only until April. Below we explain what to do.
Buy-to-let landlords are being warned to act now before a tax perk on home improvements that could help them meet new green targets is abolished.
There are just a few weeks to apply for £1,500 tax relief, per property, on works to boost energy efficiency such as insulation or a new boiler.
A further £5,600 of Green Deal cashback is available, but the application process can be chaotic, so landlords should apply as soon as possible if they want to claim.
