    Self assessment

    Hi, I have been renting out a property for nearly 12months and I have to complete a self assessment for my earnings. I was told on the phone my HMRC to register online and I’d get a login code UTR. I’ve tried to login and I now need to wait for an activation code. What do I need to complete? I work full time and have received my P60. Once I’m on the self assessment site do I just complete an SA105 or does it just ask for my extra earnings from my property. I’m a complete newbie at self assessments so any help would be much appreciated.

    When you complete the self assessment form you'll be asked for details of tax already deducted which you take from the P60.
    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).

        You declare ALL income from ALL(**) sources and complete the SA online..

        ** All sources: Property, job, other work, boot sales, ebay, bank interest, share dividends, the lot. (No offense ,,,) but the the name of the tax is "income tax".
        I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

          Go online and search for the self assessment notes and paper form if you want to know what you’ll be doing when you get your log in details. That’ll give you a good idea.

            Not necessarily - if you just have a clear out at home and sell at a boot sale or on Ebay then you don't have to declare that.

            • Adding wife to BTL property
              ringzer
              In 2005 I bought a BTL property in London with an outstanding mortgage of ~£150,000 and a current market value of ~ £500,000. The apartment has never been lived in by me and my name alone is on the title deeds and mortgage.

              I would like to add my wife to the property, either 1) title...

              I always believed that a DOT was used because normal ownership of tenant in common property was automatically registered as 50/50 split when the true ownership may have been different i.e wife has put more money in or such. Surely to transfer a percentage to your wife and then use a DOT to claim that...

              Where property is owned as tenancy in common, the default presumption is that each tenant owns the property in equal proportions.
              But that doesn't have to be the case, the ownership can be shared in specified proportions, so 1% and 99%, or 60%:40% are possible.

              That split would normally...

              I think the solicitor may arrange a sale contract of 25% share in property from H ( seller ) to W ( Buyer ) at Nil price . but the Tax Office will say the consideration is 25% of mortgage loan for calculation the sdlt to pay.

              After the property is registered under the names of H&W (...

              Is this possible (genuine question)? I understand the tenants in common bit but I thought you then needed a declaration of trust in order to change the proportions....

              Option 2 is not available because you have a mortgage loan ( in sole name ) secured by the mortgage lender taking a charge on the property title. This means any change to the property title requires consent by the mortgage lender.

              You can transfer by gifting a 25% share in the property...

              Tenants in common - which allows each person to own a defined share of a property.
              You can transfer 1% of a property to someone (at the value of 1% of the total property value at the time).

              Totally agree about the mortgage lender....

              This intrigues me, how do you transfer a small part of title? I know you can split beneficial ownership of jointly held property but how do you transfer a small part of title prior to changing beneficial ownership.

              I'm not sure your mortgage company will allow a transfer of title only,...

              You can transfer a small part of the property to your wife, not necessarily half.
              That can minimise the SDLT (or remove it altogether).

              Then you use a deed of trust to adjust the beneficial ownership to the desired percentage (notified to HMRC using Form 17).

              It's something...

            • Trying to move away from using an accountant, and handle my own tax return.
              BobbosHandle
              Dear all,
              I'm a landlord with one property.

              I'm paying an accountant about £600 p/a to take care of my self-assessment tax return. I would like to do it myself and save some cash.

              I'm sure I could get most of it right, but I'm anxious not to draw the gaze of inland revenue...
