Limited liability Partnership for existing properties owned
Summary of strategy
Assuming you want to create a family business / portfolio of properties whilst having your eye on the tax efficiency of the transactions, this is a solution to consider.
Your likely position is that at present you have several properties that you own personally, and the aim is to involve your family in the management of them, hence a revised approach.
You may therefore consider forming an LLP to house the assets and add someone as partner to the new entity.
Assuming we can satisfy HMRC that this transaction is for business reasons, the transfer of assets most likely be free of SDLT and CGT. However under the anti-avoidance rules HMRC may still challenge the approach. You would therefore need to understand and confirm that such a challenge does not concern you.
