    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.

            • Confused over multiple dwellings relief!
              fandango
              Hello all

              I'm interested in buying a single block of self-contained units/flats (i.e. own kitchen and bathroom, no shared amenities or rooms). However if I am buying the lot on one single freehold title, would multiple dwellings relief still apply for the stamp duty?

              Thank...

              Better to ask the experts ( Tax Office for sdlt) or get a quote from a conveyancing firm. .

              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...

              Okay I can see the image now, however that is just asking how ownership is changing, it doesn't say they will allow it!

              I don't seem to be able to view the image re option 1. I'm keen to know if it is possible to split ownership with wife without adding her to the mortgage.

              Option 2
              If your wife isn't on the mortgage, the transfer is a gift and there's no consideration and no SDLT.
              The gain from the point of transfer would be split.

              If there's no saving of income tax, there's no saving other than the CGT allowance (assuming there aren't any changes...

              You're right, I remember that post. I agree that it's possible to do it but I feel if HMRC did take the time to view it then it could be classed as fraudulent, evading stamp duty and income tax.

              Beneficial ownership is a can of worms and HMRC aren't in any position to dispute what a married couple assert to be how they want to split the beneficial ownership, regardless of title.

              Someone posted on here a while back, and I made pretty much the same point (which was that the deed...

              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...
