A year has passed since landlords Steve Bolton and Chris Cooper launched their campaign to fight against Section 24 of The Finance Act. To celebrate this achievement they have announced the formalization of an industry wide “Tenant Tax Coalition”.
The campaign to date has had more than 1,000 articles published and substantial national media coverage. Supporters have met with scores of politicians and a number of MPs have started to use the term ‘Tenant Tax' or the ‘Axe the Tenant Tax' (ATT) in their communications. There are now a growing list of MPs who are supportive of the cause.
In particular, a growing range of organisations have supported the ATT Campaign. Support has been received from almost all landlord and letting agent representative bodies, property related media channels and more than 3,000 individuals. This industry wide collaboration has now been formalized as the Tenant Tax Coalition.
Amongst those organisations who are the core Tenant Tax Coalition Stakeholders are the National Landlords Association (NLA), the Residential Landlords Association (RLA), the Scottish Association of Landlords (SAL), the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA) and the UK Association of Letting Agents (UKALA).
The Core Coalition Stakeholders above have agreed to support the campaign in the ways that are best suited to each organization’s desires and circumstances. Individual and independent activities will continue but the Core Stakeholders will now also work together on some or all of the campaign proposals.
Every landlord can help in one or more of the following ways:
