What is property flipping?

Property flipping is a well-established investment strategy which involves purchasing a property and selling it for a profit. It’s also known as property trading, fix and flip, or buy to sell. The majority of flipping involves some refurbishment, but this isn’t always the case; value can also be created by buying at a below-market price (perhaps at auction) or by resolving ongoing legal issues.

Property flipping tax considerations

Property flipping is predominantly considered to be a trading activity, rather than an investment activity. This means that profits that you realise through flipping will be subject to either income tax or, more commonly, corporation tax for properties bought and sold via a limited company. The mindset and operating model of a property flipper is closer to that of a ‘conventional’ business, than that of a landlord.

Property flippers generally retain a portion of their sale profits to fund the purchase of their next property. Using a limited company for this has advantages, including flexibility and access to the business tax regime. In addition, depending on your long-term strategy, it may be beneficial to retain profits inside a limited company and claim entrepreneurs' relief on the retained profit when closing the company down.
