    Buy To Let Mortgage (Interest Only) - Overpaying and Tax Implications? 15th Mar 10 at 10:47 AM
    Dear all,
    I'm after some advice please.

    I have a property that has just been rented out (12 month tenancy started Feb 2010) on an interest only mortgage. I am now looking to overpay this mortgage and I have confirmed with the mortgage lender that they are happy to accept overpayments.

    However I understand I will need pay tax on any profits from the letting (I'm new to this!) - would me overpaying the mortgage mean I earn less profit and therefore have to pay less tax?

    Thanks in advance,

  • Overall I do enjoy #newszoids though, good populist pre election satire. I think andy Murray best voice. U?

  • I think #newszoids seriously struggling with the @Schofe voice. I wouldn't come close to recognising it. Others far better
