    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.

    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 don't think pensions can invest in residential property, but commercial or agricultural is OK.

  • Will I pay stamp duty?

    So i was hoping for some good advice.

    Me and my girlfriend are looking to buy a house together, the problem is i already have a house of my own which i am renting out on a BTL mortgage. So if i buy a house with my girlfriend that will be my second home, but her only home.

    There are a minority of lenders who will accept one person being on the Title but with two persons on the mortgage in order support the affordability , otherwise You cannot circumvent the SDLT premium in the second property is in joint names.

  • Tax implications of extending a lease at no cost
    LondonLiz
    Hi there

    i am one of four directors of a company that owns the freehold of the four flats in our house.

    one of the owners is selling and wants to extend the lease as its dropped to 67 years. I realise now we should have done 999 leases as soon as we bought the freehold but...

    Thanks - it would be our preference to renew them all at the same but unfortunately the seller is pushing us as their buyer is threatening to pull out.

    We now have differing advice over whether we will be liable to pay tax on the assumed financial benefit of the extended lease at no cost....

    Hi all, I am completely new to this so wanted to get some informal advice. I currently jointly own a freehold property in London (with my sister that lives in the US) that I inherited from my mother many years ago. I do not live in the house, not does my sister; until now, the entire property was let...

    It's permitted, but is obviously designed to evade tax. You need to declare the income you receive from your son - and pay tax on it. What is he going to pay over to you - the full rent or more than he has actually received? For £1500 this is a lot of complications and your son becomes a landlord with...

    Your son is basically renting the property from you, so he can deduct the rent he pays you from his income, so you don’t end up paying tax twice.

    If the freehold title is owned by external party, then the external "freeholder" would charge each leaseholder for lease extension.

    If the freehold company is owned by the 4 leaseholders, the members of the freehold company can agree to extend all flats together to 999...
