    SDLT Query

    I purchased a property via auction. I completed the transaction within the allotted 28 day time frame

    However I wanted to know when exactly does the SDLT have to be paid/submitted by the conveyancer

    Is it 30 days after the transaction completed? i.e. after the allotted 20 days)

    Within 14 days from the sale completion date:

      Landlords are easy to tax, no one likes us.

      It is anti-marriage though, which is usually a bad look in politics.

      That's just mean! He may get stung twice then. He's going to get hit with 3% buying a new family home and then get hit again if he goes half on the BTL.

    • Help me understand my tax bill please

      To give a quick background summary:
      I have a rental property. It is my old house that I rented out when I moved to another area due to my work.
      I was working as a sole trader so did my income and rental taxes together which probably disguised what I'm seeing now.

      As above - your profit is £5400 - so you are not paying more tax than your profit.

      No tax paid is not an allowable expense! For CGT or anything else .....

      We presume you are a higher rate tax payer in your main job -- or the rental income of £5400 is making you higher ra...

      Thanks Leaseholder, I understand that capital payments have never been allowable. I know it sounds naive, but when I was paying my sole trader tax I never really saw the impact of the rental income tax. I guess I'm just looking for some confirmation of what I am seeing, does it seem right - Paying more...

      The mortgage capital repayments have never been allowable against income tax. they are represent part of the acquisition cost,which is allowable against capital gains tax.

    • Trading allowance and my tax bill
      My two sons look after my properties whilst I am on holiday.
      If I make a payement to each of them of £1000 each for this service can I declare this as an expense on my tax return?
      In addition can they take the money and not declare it under the trader's allowance.............

      The trading allowance applies only to self-employed persons :
