    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.

      Are you doing self assessment property form?

          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.

            I'm going to make an overnight trip to another city wholly and exclusively for the purpose of doing some work in relation to my rental properties, which are owned in a limited company.

            I am already treating my train fare and hotel cost as a business expense, paid for by the company, but...

            HMRC don't allow landlords to claim for their own labour against income for tax.
            Landlords are expected to do work on their investment as part of their business activity.

            That may be different in Scotland.

            Hi,
            I read a lot about changing to a ltd company, at which point or why should this be done. I currently have 2 BTL and in the process of buying my third with a fourth on the cards for end of year or early next year. What is the best advice for this.

            I am a tax free resident so...

            You can't offset the repayment element of a mortgage against income (as an individual) - at least not in England, Scottish rules might be different.
            The position as a limited company would be slightly different, but not that much.

            Well if it’s tax deductible then say I pay £1k for a boiler then my profit at end of year would be £1k less so wouldn’t pay tax on that amount....

            I’m talking about profit after mortgage and other payments are made., ie insurance, boiler contract etc. They are both on repayment mortgages so less monthly profit than interest only....

            Fed-up of all the attacks on the BTL sector by the government and the ever-increasing red tape and hassles of managing tenants, so I'm looking to sell my portfolio of UK BTL properties and invest a fairly large sum into equities etc. from which to receive an annual 'retirement' income.

            Hi,
            The ex-wife and I had a couple of rental properties which we've rented out for the past 2.5 years. The initial intention was to use the properties as an investment for the future, but we divorced after a year and never put our tax affairs in order. After the divorce, I wanted to declare the...

            I expect both you and ex-wife have to submit tax return for rental profit for 2016/2017 and 2017/2018 ( since you started letting 2.5 years ago and current year end profit cannot yet be computed ) .
            So from the letting records of each property and for each year , you calculate the...
