    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.

              I’m considering selling my primary residence and moving into my buy to let. I then will want to sell the buy to let in a couple of years time and then buy a new primary residence outright. Reason for this is to consolidate my assets and buy my next family home outright.
              My question is will...

              I bet changing these CGT rules is going to be the next government anti landlord move!

              Agreed, thanks! Looks like I'm as optimal as possible, just a small tweak to share split required to make the most of wife in 18% bracket and me in 28%.

              If each person has £25K capital gain, approx £12K annual allowance can be deducted .

              So taxable gain is on £13K, charged at 18% or 28%. ( = £2300 or £3640 )

              If you moved in to live for 2 years , your capital gain is reduced from £25K to £20K

              and your...

            • CGT on Primary Residence that is being split
              splitdreams
              We bought our home 20 years ago.
              7 Years ago we developed an outbuilding and have been renting that out.
              We have continued to live in the main house.

              We are trying to understand our CGT liability should we wish to formally split the property and sell the main house.

              The capital again from sale of your house ( owner occupied for 20 years ) is exempt for capital gains tax.

              After sale of your outbuilding , the capital gain is apportioned between letting period and main residence period.

              The gain under the letting period is liable...

              Ok hadn't realised that it's split in this way. Hardly worth doing then... In my instance anyway.
              £50k gain spread over two people's CGT allowance. It would be quite a pain to temporarily move!

              If you move into the BTL property and it becomes your primary residence, and you sell after 2 years , your situation is

              Property owned for 10 years and if your total capital gain is say £100K .

              The total gain is apportioned £80K ( 8 Years as BTL) and £20K ( 2 years...

              Politicians (and everyone else) can only have one primary residence, and they don't get to have a different one at weekends.

              CGT isn't applicable for a primary residence, but it simply transfers to the other property you're not living in.

              If you were to move in part time, you...
