    Relief on mortgage interest - Self Assessment, box missing??? WHERE DOES IT GO?

    Hi. I understand the changes to relief cuts on mortgage interest we can claim now, what was 100% tax deductible is now only 50% tax deductible and reducing further next year etc.. so that bit I understand. On my last years tax return I was able to input the 75% in one box and there was another box to input the other 25%.

    I can't find this box this year. I have looked through the paper copy online and the notes on how to complete the 2018/19 tax return, however I can't find the box it states to put the rest of the interest in is not there. It should be a ' Residential finance costs not included in box 26' box, but it's no where to be found on my online return.

    This is driving me insane as it's stated in all the other documents I have read on 'how to guide' but not on the actual form I have to complete and submit. Can anyone help or tell me if I'm supposed to input the left over 50% of interest in another box/place on the return?

    I'm an accidental landlord who really didn't want to be one so all this stresses me out.

    Hope this makes sense???

    There is no such thing as 'accidental LL', Do do some LL training for NLA/RLA members, or aslk HMRC to advise you.

      It should be on the next page, or the one after!

            Are you completing the tax return form SA105 ( 2018-9) ?

            There is box 26 for entering 50% of the loan interest and other 50% goes in box 44 .

              I appreciate 'ignorance' is no excuse, however there are some mitigating factors, i.e. due to illness etc.

              1. Previous family home rented out - terrible tenants - left owing rent, bad repairs etc. [usual story for some] subsequently property not let for 2 years for a number of reasons while...

              You have to make the return to tell HMRC there is no tax to pay, if that's the case.
              There is no option not to tell HMRC....

              I think Andrew is correct .

              You start with 1/3 interest ( in 1982 valued at £6500 ? ) plus 1/6 interest from parent1 ( valued at £20K ?) plus 1/2 interest from parent 2 ( valued at £60K ? ). This probably takes your total entry cost to around £40K.

              Your total capital...

              Hi Andrew
              First of all I've got an initial appointment to speak to an accountant on Friday!

              Can I just check where you write ' ...at death 1/6th of the value of the whole would have been deemed to pass to you for CGT purposes as the survivors would share the whole'.

              Does...

              Even if probate wasn't mandatory, it would probably have been useful.

              Yes this would be the case if it was jointly owned (not as tenants in common). The situation would be that at death 1/6th of the value of the whole would have been deemed to pass to you (for CGT purposes), as the survivors would share the whole.

              So for the 3 periods you would be taken...

              There was no estate as such, property jointly owned - they were both retired at time of purchase living on small pensions, hence I bought with them so they could stay in the home they'd been renting from council from early 1950s to March 1982 at time of purchase. And I paid for the initial...

              I don't know the historic thresholds, but it's bizarre that there's no probate for both of your parents, their estate has to be tiny for that to be possible nowadays.
              It's probably too late for HMRC to do anything about that, but that process sets the values for CGT calculations later on, so it's...

              Morning Andrew
              Thanks for your response early this morning and clarifying I have to make three separate calculations [the split wasn't clear on the CGT calculator].
              I understand the query on the value but this is an ex council house on a council estate [I feel I have to defend it here as...

              As gordon indicates you need to consider it in three entirely separate parts, each have their own gain and calculation --

              The part YOU owned before Death 1
              The part YOU owned between Death 1 and Death 2
              The part you owned after Death 2

              Based on the values you give...
