    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.

    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...

    First of all, I'd give your wife a heads up that she's about to get "done" if she doesn't already know.
    I'd guess she's received the same letter, but you never know.

    I'd use an accountant. Find one that's done this kind of thing before.
    They'll know what the standard...

  • Becoming self employed to become your tenant's gardener?
    Juliaabc
    Hi everyone. Never posted before because had nothing to add, but I was wondering if I could get some suggestions or pointers before I start having to pay costs to set this up.


    My query is this: I have a mortgaged property which has a consent to let agreed upon it. The property...

    Some landlords pay tax via PAYE with HMRC approval.

    Most landlords aren't "self employed", even if they complete a self assessment annually....

    Hi again

    I overlooked the fact that your profit was £20k per year so the tax and fine may be bigger. Was there a mortgage on these properties?

    however, there may still be time register for self assessment for the 2017/18 tax year meaning there would be no fine for that year....

    g373,
    Thanks for the information. I'm a basic rate tax payer and there were a few months of the property being empty, so will see on the fine.

    Did you process the tax documents and submit yourself or use an accountant? From what I've see so far, it's mostly a matter of diligent record...

    Artful -- in casual conversation when most folk talk about benefits they are not talking about your "old age" pension "earned" mostly via paying national insurance contributions and tax (albeit not related to the quantity of that tax). Nor are they talking about the NHS, child benefit,...

    Hmmmnnnn About half of the benefit spend goes on old people, like me. And, btw, the state pension keeps increasing very nicely thank you unlike, say, UC or JSA or ESA..

    I start by cutting farming subsidies (did no harm in NZ..) and the sovereign grant....

    Cheers!
