Big changes to taxation of furnished holiday lets

25 June 2024

The Chancellor also announced the abolition of the Furnished Holiday Lettings (FHL) tax regime – the significant tax advantages over standard long-term lets have now gone.

This is because, from a taxation point of view, you are no longer running a business. From April 2025, in the eyes of HM Revenue & Customs, despite the work involved, furnished holiday lets are treated as passive investments and taxed as such. The regime is being brought into line with standard buy-to-lets, which themselves have suffered from tax increases recently.

The new rules will not be finalized until they appear in the Finance Act, but it looks likely they will be approved.
