Hi guys, im going to purchase a shop free hold and plan on running a business from it, i want my girlfriend to run it while i continue to do my current line of work. since i own the shop i wont have to pay rent just the outgoings each year ie. water,rates etc. i was thinking if i set up the business as a company or trust that has its (own idenity) would it be possible for me as the landlord to charge my campany rent each week that way it would came as an expense for the campany and it would have a lower net profit and thus less tax payable for the campany, while the campany would not really be losing money because it goes to me anyway. I was thinking of putting the business in my girlfriends name and charging her rent each week as the landlord but then i wouldent be able to reap the profits of the business as she would own it i would just get the rent. is what im thinking worthwhile or to much trouble and i should just keep the business in my name and pay no rent. But maybe pay more tax, any suggestions would be great thanks.
