    extension - not allowable as captial expenses?

    Was going through a hmrc guide https://www.gov.uk/guidance/income-t...income#history. Under "Capital Expenditure" they mention some of the expenses which might not be covered:

    "These are examples of capital expenses that wouldn’t normally be allowable:
    • adding an extension
    • installing a security system if there wasn’t one before
    • replacing a kitchen with one of a higher specification"
    I thought doing an extension would be covered as capital expense since its an upgrade. And if not what is it? OR am i not understanding it correctly.

    Interested in knowing your thoughts on it.

    Thanks

    The article says that the items listed aren't allowable against income, because they are capital in nature.
    When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
    Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

      okay, makes sense now...I was thinking of "allowable" as an adjective instead for capital expenses. Thanks

        I am currently looking at surveyors but i just wanted to know where i stand in terms of stamp duty, costs etc.

        I have phoned 5 different solicitors

        Thank you, so am i right in saying Because I already own a property it would be 3% which is the higher rate band?
        As the
        SDLT relief for multiple dwellings would still apply but at the higher rate bracket?...

        As you already own a residential dwelling which is presumably worth over £40,000 the higher rate of SDLT will apply to your multiple dwelling SDLT calculation.

        I don't know the answer, but if true this would be an absolute outrage.

        Some little kid buying their own home where granny left them a quarter of a house that is rented out pays 3% additional tax

        Someone who buys 8 properties pays 1%

        Pity us all

        I'm about to make a will and would like to check my assumptions are correct. Beneficiaries are OH (we're married) and DD. Some BTLs are in my sole ownership, others are joint tenants with OH. There is a large CGT liability on all of them if I were to sell. DD is an adult but IMO a bit too young for...

        The IHT threshold would be £650k.
        The other £350k applies for the disposal of the main residence only.

        Just been dealing with exactly all this.

        Not sure I agree with this.

        As a married person on the first death the estate can pass to the surviving partner meaning the IHT threshold on their death will be £1 million, then on their death ........

        1 - yes you can and will pay duplicate tax (assuming both types are due)
        2- Yes
        3- Yes
        4-regard as effectively two items -- 50% with base value as per your probate value (need a formal assessment), other 50% with initial purchase value (whether by you or spouse. For the first half...
