Tax relief changes
Historically (pre April 2017), any interest you paid towards the mortgage payments could be deducted from your rental income before you paid tax on it.
Since April 2017 the new tax system has been phased in, each tax year from 2017 to 2020 the percentage of mortgage interest payments that can deducted from rental income will decrease by 25% and the portion of interest payments that qualify for a new tax credit will increase by 25%.
This means that from April 2020 you will not be able to deduct any interest payments from rental income. However, 100% of the interest payments will qualify for the new 20% tax credit.
