Landlords used to be able to deduct 100% of their mortgage interest when calculating taxable profit. In April 2017 this was reduced to 75%.
From 6 April 2018, landlords will only be able to offset 50% of their mortgage interest against profits.
This will continue to decrease until the relief is phased out entirely by 2020.
Instead, landlords will be able to claim a 20% tax credit on their mortgage interest.
