    Tax Deductible?

    I have a flat that I rent out that I have found out is subject to a doubling ground rent clause. I have the chance to get a deed variation but it's going to cost me double the amount of someone who lives in their property to get the variation (£4k!!) Is this something that is tax deductible?

    What is the actual wording on "starting ground rent" and "frequency of increase" and "permitted increase" in your lease ?

      Some very interesting and views on this from both ends of the spectrum. Also, legally I am not getting much of a clearer answer to be honest. I think the safest bet at this point is 99% to 1% as majority here are for familiar with this including my agent.

      For the record I am doing the deed...

      I have two properties with an income of £9,000. HMRC does not allow web filing accounts if income is over £5,250+. The options seem to be a) buy and use software acceptable to HMRC or b) use an accountant who has such software and charges £250 + VAT pa. As I file accounts directly with HMRC for...

      I suggest you ask the tax office to send you a paper version tax return for first year submission ( before 31 st Oct ) .

      Next year if you understand the system, change to online tax return .

      Thank you Gordon999 and JKO, both very interesting. I do the book-keeping and use a spreadsheet with all income and outgoings, plus bank account, so when I hand it over to the person who submits they literally enter the info provided and submit. They offered to submit our CS01 for £40 plus VAT, which...

      I use something I've put together which calculates exactly what I need to put in each box on the SA forms. We've got the same number of properties and it works for us, but I find I have to be on top of it (sometimes on a daily basis) with expenses and paperwork so it's not for everyone. The good thing...

      I bet accountant will be able to identify £250 of savings, and his bill is tax deductible also. Thirdly, any mistake found years ahead will be on his head rather than yours. Go with the accountant IIWY.

      If you use a separate bank account to receive the monthly rental payments and pay the expenses by cheque, your bank account statements will serve as your bookkeeping records.

      For rental income of around £9K total , you can probably submit a paper tax return SA 200 . This form requires...

      Hi Gordon,

      The income is too low to be registered for VAT. HMRC have a list of software but when I looked a year or so ago, it was quite expensive. I wondered if others had a similar situation and what they did.
