    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)

            I feel I have messed up my life. Despite working hard, I have landed on a banana skin.

            I bought a 3 bedroom house many years ago. It seemed like a nice area. Little did I know, nearby the local housing associations had housed the thugs like the Kray twins and their chums. It was a "problem...

            You will also get Letting Relief and Private Residence Relief and your personal Annual Allowance for CGT. Your bill maybe a lot less than you think.

            I think your assessed Tax Band is the key, not your Income, which can vary. eg Benefit in Kind, net profit from property etc
            Govt can easily alter qualifying Income.

            Hi there. I live in a Victorian property which has been divided into 5 flats.
            Several years ago, three of the flat owners (including myself) purchased the freehold. The two remaining flat owners decided that they would not participate in the freehold purchase.
            A company was formed for the...

            Normally the freehold company will report the income received from lease extension as "annual profit" in its annual acounts which are produced after the year end.

            The profit will be reported in the tax return and about 13 months later the company get a tax bill of around 20%....

            CGT is only 18% (28 If you earn a lot). You still get 82% of any increase in value.
            Plus the rental income.

            If you quote some details : we can work out roughly the cgt.

            When you bought the property and the price paid
            Dates when you lived in the property.
            Market value now .

            Thank you very much for your response - I appreciate any assistance.
            The only trouble is that there are two companies involved (I should have mentioned this previously!)
            One company is the freehold company (representing the interests of the freeholders - collecting ground rent, leasehold...

            I'd leave the money in the company, and relieve the directors of paying service charge until such time as the cash is depleted.
