Section 24 Tax Reforms The “Tenant Tax”
This is the official website of the Section 24 billboards campaign
The Section 24 Tax Reforms (also known as the “Tenant Tax”) will result in:-
- Massive rent hikes (as proven when a softer version was introduced in Ireland and is now being reversed)
- Landlords selling their rental properties (causing homelessness for tenants)
- Less private sector investment into building more homes
Section 24 Tax Reforms increase the tax payable on providing your home. Just like when fuel duty, tobacco duty, and alcohol duty are increased by the Government, so does the prices you pay.
It’s clear that availability of rental property has decreased and rents have risen markedly since these measures were announced in 2015. We call for this disastrous tax policy, which is already causing such profound suffering, to be reversed.
This Government Tax Grab isn’t fair on anybody and needs to be challenged, especially by people who cannot afford to pay higher rents and those for whom taking on a mortgage to buy a home isn’t realistic. We all need to be working together to persuade the Government of its poor judgment and to repeal this ludicrous piece of legislation.

How about putting it in your car window?
Maybe you could send a copy to your local MP or Councillor?

Let’s get creative!
Alongside our campaigning, our lead sponsors at Property118 Limited and their Hon. Legal counsel at Cotswold Barristers have been helping as many private housing providers as possible to minimise the effects of the Section 24 Tax Reforms. By optimising the structure of their businesses, to minimise and in some cases to mitigate the extra tax, the impact on tenants is also reduced. You can learn more about these structures via PowerPoint Show below.
