    Capital gains are declared for the tax year in which they are made. So no to that one. You declare later.

    I would have thought it reasonable to say income has ceased if (to clarify artful's point) you did declare the 3rd April rent in your tax return for the year ending that April. The main reason they ask that is that they may decide to take you out of self assessment (depending on the rest of your tax affairs).

    Forgive me I'm not sure what that means - cash I guess. I reported the actual rent that was paid, minus mortgage interest and costs. I did this each Jan 31st for the previous tax year.

    So on the date it landed or left the accounts I guess.

    Did you account on a cash or accural basis please?

    Was rented our since around 2014. Income was reported via self assessment "income from property in UK" section.

    How long was it rented out for?

    On what basis have you been accounting for HMRC in previous years?

    Did all property income cease....

    Just looking at the tax return for for 2016-17:

    Our tenants left the rented property (our only one) around end of April 2017, and we sold the house much later that year.

    The last rent payment (I'll need to double check the dates) I think may have been April 4th 2017. There was a dispute over the deposit that resulted in that being delayed, and we had many repairs and replacing carpets etc in the months after.

    On the tax return form it asks "Did all property income cease in 2016-17 and do you not expect to receive such income in 2017-2018".

    If I tick this box, does it mean HMRC are expecting a Capital Gains calculation on this form, even though it was the next tax year we sold it?
    Should I tick this box, or not?

    In case its relevant, our calculations show that there is no capital gains tax to pay as we lived in the house for a period of time.

  • Is changing carpets to laminate flooring tax deductible?
    by anqi_z
    Hello,

    Carpets in a let property has worn out and I am considering to replace it with laminate flooring.
    Could anyone advise if this will be tax deductible (assume this won't be considered as improvement)?


    Thank you....

    If your lease says that the floors need to be carpeted then you got no choice. If it does not then you can and the noise problem is not your issue it depends on what is in your lease. Yes

    Carpets are better for sound insulation between ground floor flat and first floor flat in old house conversions.

    I find that using expensive and long lasting underlay under cheaper carpet works best.
    It feels nice and luxurious and insulates well, and replacing the carpet is less traumatic on the bank balance.

    It's not strictly true that a company must be used where there are more than four owners. Where there are more than four parties with an interest in a property, the first named four are treated as holding the land on Trust for the remaining beneficial owners; good documentation is essential to avoid...

    My son and I are thinking of buying a property together and renovating it. We were intending to rent it out but now are thinking about just selling it again once work is finished. If we purchase property in three names (our’s and his partner’s), we would get three capital gains allowances is that...

    Yeah I prefer carpet too, but the rate at which tenants seem to be able to destroy carpet compared to laminate.....

    Funny how fashions change. Fifty years ago having fitted carpet had a social cachet, now everyone wants laminate flooring. I know it looks nice, but so do carperts. It is fine in a conservatory with cane furniture, but it makes a lounge look clinical. It also increases your central heating costs.

    Land Registry only allows 4 names maximum on the property title.

    If more than 4 names , you would need to register under company name and the members in the group become shareholders.

    The members can be shareholders with one £1 share each and the company borrows the funds...

    If the property title was a joint tenancy, anyone not contributing to the purchase would have received the ownership as a gift and would be an owner as a matter of fact.
