Moving a property from a company

Dividends from a company do not always have to be in cash form. They can be in specie. Provided the correct paperwork is drawn up there will be no stamp duty land tax on the transfer unless there is a loan attached to the property which is taken over by the person to whom the property is transferred.

This is a cheaper option than treating the transfer of the asset as a benefit in kind which will also incur class 1A NIC for the company.
