    Offsetting costs/loses across portfolio

    Hello everyone,

    i am in the process of calculating my tax bill across my portfolio of 4 properties. 3 of which were in profit for the year 2016/17 however 1 in particular made a significant loss of around £3,500 as I was forced to replace the windows and boiler.

    When calculating my profit and loss can I apply this loss of £3,500 across my entire portfolio (which would mean I didn't make a profit last year and therefore my tax bill is zero) or does each property need to be treated separately?

    thanks

    Across the portfolio.

    Losses can be carried forward to future years.

          OK. Did you notice how Box 1 asks you how many properties you rent out? In other words, the form is intended to be used for the combined income and expenses, etc. for all the properties you have an interest, not one form per property.

          • transferring part of ownership to wife for tax reasons

            hello. at the moment i am sole owner of a rental property, mortgage free.
            I would like to transfer some of the ownership to my wife in order for us to split the rental income 50/50.
            I have done some research, but would like confirmation - is what I need to do a 'declaration of trust' to...

            Yes I think you have got that right, as in indicated in my posts. Plus a stated on the HMRC site. there are special rules for married couples (or civil partnership) - good luck...

            I originally posted in the finance section - but I now think this is more of a tax question. Some questions arose during a discussion yesterday and I just wondered if anyone has any thoughts/ answers on the below?

            Thank you JP this helps me. It's good to know the property value / duty payable is separate from the debt....

            I don't think the changes in allowances or rules over time will have too much effect.
            You can probably work it out in Excel - but, if it were me I'd let an expert do it for me, just for the peace of mind.

            Yes, I think you are right jpkeates. What started out as a fairly simple purchase and investment all those years ago has a life of its own now and has become complicated. I didn't for instance know if I might be able to claim PRR for the 3 years I was there when we first purchased it but just having...

            You're probably going to need a tax specialist.
            When you are tenants in common with a percentage ownership, who lived where and when becomes critical and fiddly.

            For example, your third is subject to PPR for periods you were living there, but not when you weren't - family home or...

            Hi JPKeates, we were tenants in common and what happened was my father left his share to my mother so she had 67% and I had 33%, which changes the figures Gordon 999 came up with.

            Re your response Gordon999 - thank you so much, you made me realize the obvious - that I hadn't actually owned...

            Transactions are "connected" based on the facts of the transactions.

            You don't buy a property and its debt separately.

            In the example you give, the property is worth £3.5m, anyone buying it at £1.5m would be taxed as though the transaction was £3.5m - unless they...
