    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.

            Hi,

            Are the following costs allowable (tax deductible) expenses on property income?

            1. Accountant fees for compiling and submitting my self assessment every year.

            2. Legal fees for transferring the ownership of the property from my sole name to joint names (with...

            I don't see that.

            A fee paid to a solicitor for legal advice or for conveyancing is not a "fee paid for ...registration of title on property purchase".
            That's something that would be paid to the land registry.

            It's an anomalous exception in any case, because...

            Correct. And not legal fees relating to this aspect either....

            Hi,

            I have read up on this subject but I am unclear re the following scenario.

            I own my own home in Glasgow. This is my only home.

            I have been made redundant, and my work is offering relocation to London.

            I would like to retain my home in Glasgow -...

            Gordon spot on, but in Scotland a lodger is does not have a licence but a "common law tenancy" (paperwork suggestions Gordon makes I'd agree with...) and if he doesn't go when asked you need a Sheriff Court decree - see...

            There is nothing to prevent OP keeping his home in Glasgow and taking on a lodger.

            But the lodger must be covered by a licence stating the payment of rent ( weekly or fortnightly or monthly ) and what notice period must be served to quit by each side .

            • management fees paid to an agent for rent collection, advertising and administration

            I am not sure I agree on the legal fees for transferral jp.

            Take spouse part out of it as that complicates it. If I were to transfer part of a property to my friend, that cost of transfer would be capital and offset against later capital gains. Not really different from selling the whole...

            If the property is let or about to be let, 2 is definitely allowable.

            1 is debatable.
            It's something that everyone does (including me), but it probably fails the solely and exclusively test, so it probably shouldn't be allowed.
            For many people, the need for it arises as a direct...

            There's a significant difference between a main residence for tax purposes and a main residence for a property licence.
            You can nominate your principle residence for tax purposes (as many MPs do) which is fine for tax purposes.

            It doesn't have the same effect when it comes to determining...
