    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

          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...

          If each person has £25K capital gain, approx £12K annual allowance can be deducted .

          So taxable gain is on £13K, charged at 18% or 28%. ( = £2300 or £3640 )

          If you moved in to live for 2 years , your capital gain is reduced from £25K to £20K

          and your...

        • CGT on Primary Residence that is being split
          splitdreams
          We bought our home 20 years ago.
          7 Years ago we developed an outbuilding and have been renting that out.
          We have continued to live in the main house.

          We are trying to understand our CGT liability should we wish to formally split the property and sell the main house.

          The capital again from sale of your house ( owner occupied for 20 years ) is exempt for capital gains tax.

          After sale of your outbuilding , the capital gain is apportioned between letting period and main residence period.

          The gain under the letting period is liable...

          Ok hadn't realised that it's split in this way. Hardly worth doing then... In my instance anyway.
          £50k gain spread over two people's CGT allowance. It would be quite a pain to temporarily move!

          If you move into the BTL property and it becomes your primary residence, and you sell after 2 years , your situation is

          Property owned for 10 years and if your total capital gain is say £100K .

          The total gain is apportioned £80K ( 8 Years as BTL) and £20K ( 2 years...

          Politicians (and everyone else) can only have one primary residence, and they don't get to have a different one at weekends.

          CGT isn't applicable for a primary residence, but it simply transfers to the other property you're not living in.

          If you were to move in part time, you...

          This might interest you guys if anyone has a problem with the higher tax rules.



          If you actively work in your property business for over 20 hours per week, you can transfer your properties to a company, without paying CGT....

          In theory.

          There are a number of problems with that and I'd not want to be the first person to interest HMRC and have a test case....
