    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.

            If you receive cashback when taking out a buy to let mortgage do you have to declare this as income and will it incur tax?

            Great so no need to declare it on my tax return?

            Most lenders who offer a modest cash back do so to enable the borrower to use , if they wish, as a payment towards the basic legal costs instead of offering Free Basic Legal Fees or towards the cost of a valuation, so no it doesn’t have to be declared to HMRC as income , and remember such freebies...

            Hello,

            I purchased a property in 2009 for £115k (and spent around £20k on improvements) and I’m thinking about selling it early 2019 for £300k.
            I’d expected an approx. £40k CGT bill, but now I’m not so sure and could really do with some high level pointers or peace of mind either way....

            Don't ever ask HMRC for tax advice.

            A) they're not qualified to give it, b) you may have to give them information to get advice that they can use against you, c) it may cause them to mark your returns for attention and d) they're hardly unbiased.

            Thank you very much. I'll speak to an accountant. I also found a HMRC CGT helpline....

            Trying to do some calculations before I think about putting a house on the market, first time I've sold a property. It's only in my name and it was my main residence before letting it out and buying another place.

            Purchase Price £175,000
            Market Value £415,000 (est)

            In Post 2, The total period owned = 180 months .

            Exemption claimed for PPR = 36 months + 18 month after moving out = 54 months

            Period under letting = 180 -54 = 126 months .

            So the capital gain during letting period = £ 240k x 126/180 = £168K.

            Hi, I've tried to follow the calculations above to apply it to my situation but get lost at the CG part - "126 /180", not knowing where these figures come from. I can follow it up to that point.

            However, I will post my figures. I likewise am trying to figure the implications...

            Hi All

            My wife has a property which we re-mortgaged on a buy-to-let mortgage to buy our home. This will be our first year doing the self-assessment, whilst I am certain on some things I have a few questions about others which I hope you all can assist with:
            1. Can we claim the mortgage product
