    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

        • Lease Extension Subject to Taxation?

          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%....

          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...

          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.

          Be thankful there is an increase to pay CGT on.

          I bought a flat in Torquay in 2005 for £185k. Someone turned the bungalow next door into a house, wiping out my sea views and about £60k of value. It has now been for sale for £175k for a month without a sniff.

          Presumably your...

          Thanks. We acted as a limited company in order to process the lease extension. The limited company comprises the three freeholders..

          Was the lease bought in your personal names or in a limited company?
