    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.

              Fed-up of all the attacks on the BTL sector by the government and the ever-increasing red tape and hassles of managing tenants, so I'm looking to sell my portfolio of UK BTL properties and invest a fairly large sum into equities etc. from which to receive an annual 'retirement' income.

              Hi,
              The ex-wife and I had a couple of rental properties which we've rented out for the past 2.5 years. The initial intention was to use the properties as an investment for the future, but we divorced after a year and never put our tax affairs in order. After the divorce, I wanted to declare the...

              I expect both you and ex-wife have to submit tax return for rental profit for 2016/2017 and 2017/2018 ( since you started letting 2.5 years ago and current year end profit cannot yet be computed ) .
              So from the letting records of each property and for each year , you calculate the...

              First of all, I'd give your wife a heads up that she's about to get "done" if she doesn't already know.
              I'd guess she's received the same letter, but you never know.

              I'd use an accountant. Find one that's done this kind of thing before.
              They'll know what the standard...

              Hi everyone. Never posted before because had nothing to add, but I was wondering if I could get some suggestions or pointers before I start having to pay costs to set this up.


              My query is this: I have a mortgaged property which has a consent to let agreed upon it. The property...

              Some landlords pay tax via PAYE with HMRC approval.

              Most landlords aren't "self employed", even if they complete a self assessment annually....

              Hi again

              I overlooked the fact that your profit was £20k per year so the tax and fine may be bigger. Was there a mortgage on these properties?

              however, there may still be time register for self assessment for the 2017/18 tax year meaning there would be no fine for that year....

              g373,
              Thanks for the information. I'm a basic rate tax payer and there were a few months of the property being empty, so will see on the fine.

              Did you process the tax documents and submit yourself or use an accountant? From what I've see so far, it's mostly a matter of diligent record...

              Artful -- in casual conversation when most folk talk about benefits they are not talking about your "old age" pension "earned" mostly via paying national insurance contributions and tax (albeit not related to the quantity of that tax). Nor are they talking about the NHS, child benefit,...
