    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 ?

      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 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 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.

      Have you asked HMRC about what software to use for online returns?

      I thought the online return was required for quarterly VAT returns ?...

    • Sale of (let) residential property: is HMRC notification required?
      MdeB
      I have just sold a residential property I have been letting.
      There is a capital loss on the disposal.

      I have a vague recollection that such disposals need to be notified to HMRC within 30 days of completion, but a search has not come up with anything other than "it will become...

      The problem is that HMRC can't currently properly cope with any kind of "interim" tax return (non-UK residents don't have annual tax returns, pretty much by definition).
      The best they can do is adjust a tax code or interim payment if you advise them something has changed dramatically....

    • Is there a maximum you can put against tax

      Good evening.

      We have done our tax return for last year, and the system highlighted our tax returns as too high. We still pay roughly £1000 in tax after deductions. All work was necessary, replacing two leaking showers in two flats was an expensive job because it also included retiling...
