    Scottish BTL

    Myself and wife have a joint mortgage on a BTL property in Inverness Scotland, we also live in Scotland. I am a 40% tax payer my wife is 20%. Is it possible to have the rent all payed to her for tax reasons or would we have to go 50-50 due to both our names on the BTL mortgage contract. I have looked in to tenants in common but this only applies in England.

    This situation was raised in 2012 :

    I suggest that you consult the Inverness tax office to ascertain their latest rules and if Form 17 is acceptable to their office.

    • When to claim accountant expense, same year or can it be added to previous year?
      by cuttingman
      Doing tax return for 2020-2021, paid accountant at the beginning of this month to check it. I gave them all my expenses including their fees and they put it in the tax return. But now that I thought about it because I paid in the 2021-2022 tax year I should add this expense to the next tax return....

      The accountant has to start work after 6 April 2021 in order to cover the whole tax year of 2020-2021..

      So accountant's bill is correctly entered as an expense in current year.

      Expenses should be claimed when they're committed or paid, so it looks like a mistake to me.

      OK. Your capital gain =£22,242 less £12, 300 = £9942 x 18% = £ 1790 tax bill to pay.

      Thanks for reply, much appreciated.
      I asked my solicitor about the 30 day rule and he emailed me back saying I didn't need to do this as no cgt to pay but, as I do a yearly self assessment, to include it my self assessment. I'll be sending it off this week. There's a website called 'xxxx' which...

      I have never claimed CGT allowance but may need to after selling an inherited property. The property gained in value during probate. The sold price was £153k and the valuation at death for 'capital gains purposes' was £130000. There are 3 shares. My share of selling price is £51k and share of gain...

      - You have to submit the CGT calculations within 30 days regardless of whether there is CGT to pay (else you get large and increasing fines)

      No it is not added to your income for this purpose

      Thank you for replies. Re how it was valued, this is where my head spins. Our mum passed away around 8 years ago. We got probate in 2019. Property was transferred into 3 siblings names in 2020, so that we could benefit from personal CGT allowance. The solicitor sent us a document 'for hmrc cgt purposes'...

      I'd imagine it would be payable as CGT by the individuals. Certainly that would apply to interest earned on savings during probate so don't think CGT would be different. It is definitely not payable by the estate (that would be grossly unfair to some beneficiaries who had not used various allowances)....
