    Short tax return

    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 and show the 75% of interest or do I show the total interest and leave it to HMRC to adjust?
    Apologies if this has been asked before.

    When you checked against Theresa's document here, what did you conclude? What total profit & what total rental income please?

      Sorry artful, I don't understand why you are asking me that. I haven't checked against Thersa's document (what is that?). I just want to know how I show the reduced mortgage interest claim against profit.
      Thanks

        • Allowable expenses on property income
          Landlord123!
          Hi,

          Are the following costs allowable (tax deductible) expenses on property income?

          1. Accountant fees for compiling and submitting my self assessment every year.

          2. Legal fees for transferring the ownership of the property from my sole name to joint names (with...

          I don't see that.

          A fee paid to a solicitor for legal advice or for conveyancing is not a "fee paid for ...registration of title on property purchase".
          That's something that would be paid to the land registry.

          It's an anomalous exception in any case, because...

          Correct. And not legal fees relating to this aspect either....

          Hi,

          I have read up on this subject but I am unclear re the following scenario.

          I own my own home in Glasgow. This is my only home.

          I have been made redundant, and my work is offering relocation to London.

          I would like to retain my home in Glasgow -...

          Gordon spot on, but in Scotland a lodger is does not have a licence but a "common law tenancy" (paperwork suggestions Gordon makes I'd agree with...) and if he doesn't go when asked you need a Sheriff Court decree - see...

          There is nothing to prevent OP keeping his home in Glasgow and taking on a lodger.

          But the lodger must be covered by a licence stating the payment of rent ( weekly or fortnightly or monthly ) and what notice period must be served to quit by each side .

          • management fees paid to an agent for rent collection, advertising and administration

          I am not sure I agree on the legal fees for transferral jp.

          Take spouse part out of it as that complicates it. If I were to transfer part of a property to my friend, that cost of transfer would be capital and offset against later capital gains. Not really different from selling the whole...

          If the property is let or about to be let, 2 is definitely allowable.

          1 is debatable.
          It's something that everyone does (including me), but it probably fails the solely and exclusively test, so it probably shouldn't be allowed.
          For many people, the need for it arises as a direct...

          There's a significant difference between a main residence for tax purposes and a main residence for a property licence.
          You can nominate your principle residence for tax purposes (as many MPs do) which is fine for tax purposes.

          It doesn't have the same effect when it comes to determining...
