    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.

            • Could we be more tax efficient!
              by bobcat
              Hi all,

              We are currently completing the annual tax return for my wife and just wondering whether we could be more tax efficient! We no longer have any loans on the properties or major replacements planned so our tax payable is more than previous years. I don't mind paying tax but am wondering...

              It's only if you have an agent running the place, the flat is assumed to be managed from there, so your trips to the agent are deemed to be you 'travelling to work'. (Sounds nonsense to me, but there we are.)

              If there is no agent. or you are between lettings, I'd say you can claim mile...

              An employer can pay an employee £4 a week without it being taxable to cover the additional costs if the employee works from home.

              So I make the claim on the same basis and have done for years.
              No one's ever queried it.
              It's not consistent with the HMRC advice for small businesses,...

              Hi everyone, thanks for all the advice and apologise for the delay in responding.

              I think of all the possible things mentioned the only things I don't claim for at the moment are mileage, home office and apportioning a phone bill so will look at those in more detail.

              In terms...

              For calculation of capital gain after sale, the gain (= "sale proceeds" minus "acquisition costs" ) and you want to include the cost of 6 additional buildings and not kept the receipts, you still show the calculation in the tax return but you declare the acquisition cost is based...
