    How much do I earn?

    Ok so it's a dumb sounding question.

    I receive income as a director of my company £8060.04 PAYE, £19298.35 Dividends + Rental income £29383.33 (Gross figure, no interest or expenses deducted). I am confused as to what my total income is for the purposes of things like child benefit and calculating my overall tax burden. Am currently using a tax calculator provided by mortgage works in order to see the effect of landlord tax changes and I'm not sure whether dividends count as "employment income". If I earn dividends + PAYE do I treat the whole lot as I would treat a regular salary and then add the rental income on top of that?

    My interest + expenses for the rental property total £17763.97. When it comes to things like child benefit I'm not sure whether I'm breaching the £50k barrier or not!

    Dividends are NOT employment income as far as HMRC are concerned, however they are taken into consideration for Child Benefit purposes. Same goes for property income.

    Use the gov. calc. to check your eligibility:

      What you earn and what you are paid have always seemed often different. Many footballers get paid millions but imho only earn a couple of £100ks
      I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

        Dividends are taxed under a different tax regime to income tax, but they're still taxed.
        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).

          Your "rental income" should be the gross rent ( £29383) minus property expenses ( £17763 ) = £ 11,620 income from rental property.

          I estimate your annual income = £8,060 ( dir. pay ) + £19,298( divi ) + £11,620 ( rent income) = £38,949

          • Transfer to Ltd Company & SDLT
            AJ1
            Afternoon All,

            After much help from reading this forum I finally have question.

            I am just in the process of completing the transfer of my BTL into a ltd company.

            My solicitor has settled my personal mortgage and then taken out the new mortgage in the name of the...

            No CGT as I lived in the property for a fair amount of time myself. Thanks, SDLT paid. Now in a Ltd company. Thanks for all advice.

            This is not a transfer but a sale and purchase , On a personal basis there is the issue of CGT and for the Ltd co it is unfortunately a case where SDLT becomes payable . .

            I assume you have good reasons for transfer to a ltd company that far outweigh other issues? have you considered establishing a partnership and THEN moving to a ltd company? the reason I ask is because I am also considering it and will be booking an appointment with a recommended advisor in the near...

            As far as I know the accountant is right. This is a sale to a separate party (the company) of the whole. It is NOT a gift of the whole to the company (as in a gift to another party) in which case the solicitor advice would apply. A gift without a mortgage to a person would have no SDLT. I doubt you...

            Thank you, solicitors just confirmed its market value... damm. Never mind. Although I budgeted the SDLT anyway. Thank you again.

            Whichever you go with, make sure they both have adequate professional indemnity insurance in place.

            Evening all,

            We have recently submitted a planning application to convert a small commercial unit in a couple of new apartments. As I understand it the building work will be zero-rated for VAT as we are creating dwellings were none were previously.

            The planners have requested...

          • Short tax return
            samsam
            I have one letting property. I have always used a short tax return which has been fine for giving totals of rent and costs inc mortgage interest. Now that the allowance for mortgage interest is reducing by 25% every year how do I show the figures? Whichever tax return I use, do I do the calculations...
