    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.

    Apologies, I failed to include Theresa's link:

    Just done my draft submission: In a state of shock regarding estimated payment required 31/01/2018.

    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

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

    Hello, wondering if anyone can help.

    Firstly, my husband and I are joint owners of our rental property but I heard that we can change things so the tax is based on my income alone. Is this true? If so how can I go about arranging this. I earn alot less than my husband.

    Secondly,...

    Q1. if you are given tax return SA211 2019 to complete , then read the section 6.1 ( property let jointly ) ,

    Q2. No, its too late. It only allowable if you had use the money raised from house to buy the property.

    If you are the landlord and your husband isn't, the income would be yours.
    It becomes a little more complex if it's paid into a joint account.

    Essentially, tax is paid on beneficial income, so if your husband enjoys the results of the income, it's really his income as well.

    I’m considering selling my primary residence and moving into my buy to let. I then will want to sell the buy to let in a couple of years time and then buy a new primary residence outright. Reason for this is to consolidate my assets and buy my next family home outright.
    My question is will...

    The gain achieved during "primary residence period" is exempt for cgt. .

    The gain achieved during the BTL period is liable to cgt at 18% or 28%

    Primary residence can be claimed for the period in residence plus up to 9 months after moving out

    By taking full advantage of the tax relief for private residences and selling before they need to pay tax. You used to be able to designate whichever property you wanted as your main residence. The last 18 months of occupation is currently tax free - that is dropping to 9 months in 2020. It used to...

    They don't actually avoid it, they do what anyone can do if they live in more than one place.
    You can nominate one of them to HMRC as your primary residence - because you're only allowed one property as your "primary" residence.

    While that costs you CGT on the other one,...

    How do politicians get away with paying no CGT on their second residences?

    jpkeates is correct however your lender might give consent to you occupying the property but place a bar on any release of equity from the property until either you have vacated the property again and can demonstrate this having been done or you have sold the property: much will depend on who your Buy...

    The CGT is adjusted to allow for the period of residence (under current rules at least).

    Do you have a mortgage on the BTL property, because that would not allow you to live their without breaking the terms of the loan?
