    That time of year ,,,,

    its that time of year that I submit our tax returns (yes I know I should do it sooner !!) our profits aren't massive but since my wife has stopped working we can at least claim her full allowance due to a 99/1% split, properly notified etc a couple of years ago.

    t still leaves us with a tax bill (this year around 1k) but next year probably closer to 4 or 5k, unless we invest in more property and renovations (required works not improvements ...) can anyone recommend any good guides to utilising a private pension scheme that would reduce the tax burden, she is 57 and doesn't have a company or private pension.

    I don't think pensions can invest in residential property, but commercial or agricultural is OK.
    When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
    Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).


      thanks but I was thinking more along the lines of her investing in a private pension scheme to bring the burden down and to gain some additional benefit in doing so (in later years if necessary)


        Have you seen this stuff on website :?

        May be a magazine from WH Smiths can help you ?


          ive just ordered a couple of tax café books, thanks

          • Self Assessment
            I’m just wondering how difficult it is to actually do my own self assessment. Does anyone have a quick explanation of what it actually entails?

            I have two properties, no mortgages, and 2017-18 will be my second tax year in having them.

            I hired an accountant for 2016-17 on...

            I don’t, but thank you for bringing up.
            I’m just your average chap. Nothing extravagant to put through the books or claim. Pretty straight forward....

            If you had taxable earned income, they would still collect it close to when the income arose, as they would adjust your tax code to make you pay more tax on your salary.

            The general policy with tax has always been to try and collect it in a way that makes you approximately up to date all...

          • Additional 3% Stamp Duty with Inherited Home in the Equation?
            My client is about to buy a property on his name
            I manage one of his properties (a house that he inherited from his parents - he owns 25% share of it, his three other siblings own 25% each)
            Will he have to pay the additional 3% stamp duty tax in this situation?...

            If the share is greater than £40000 then the premium does unfortunately become payable on the new acquisition irrespective of whether it is for his own occupation or another BtL.

            It might be worth mentioning that if the share of the rental income is to be used towards the affordability...

            Yes of course (presuming the value of the share is over the value threshold). This is a tax that punishes the less-wealthy, punishes those without the financial stability of owing their own home, punishes those who are not geographically settled, punishes marriage, and punishes people for unknowingly...

            The taxman is trying to speed up collection of tax in current year by assessing your rental income for this year is roughly same as last year and making the BTL landlords pay tax sooner.

            It is rule based. It depends how much tax you owe, and the proportion of your total tax that is collected via PAYE
            (typically if you owe less than 1000 in tax, or more than 80% is via PAYE the rule will not trigger I think).

            Many thanks for your reply.

            I’ve never had this on previous tax returns for property (I’ve filled around 7 years worth).
