    Property income allowance

    I have two properties, one rented to a private tenant and another industrial property I rent to a company I own.

    I note in:

    It says:
    You cannot use the allowances in a tax year, if you have any trade or property income from:
    • a company you or someone connected to you owns or controls
    It feels a little unfortunate!

    Is this a blanket rule that scuppers this allowance?

    Are you getting annual income of less than £1000 from each of your properties ?


      I get more than £1,000 from each property.

        So these allowances are not available to you anyway.
        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).

          Hi hoping someone can clarify...

          I'm busy doing 2019-20 return. We sold a BTL during that year for £79500. As it was jointly owned between me and husband do I treat it as selling for £39750 for my part (and his) and therefore below the £48000 amount that you have to report on SA for...

          Things to consider:

          Think carefully before giving assets away as you do not know what the future holds.

          If you put an asset into trust or give it away as part of a tax planning exercise you are going to lose control over it.

          If you have fears about what may happen...

          My main residence is unencumbered. I am thinking ahead (with the thought of the 7 year rule on inheritance tax).

          If I gift my son 50% of my property now - would I still be OK to live in the house?

          Would there be any immediate tax consequences of gifting him...

          It's still an operating cost and still allowable.
          A very cautious person might allocate some of the cost as a capital item, but I wouldn't.

          Allowable costs are any costs incurred solely and exclusively for the business.
          Then you allocate them as either operational (allowed against...

          Our tenants reported a leaking roof back in January which didn't actually recur again after the initial report, they moved out in February and while we were freshening up the house for the new tenants we had the roof inspected, and decided that rather than pay out for a patch job that we would replace...

          Why do you think the roof repair can't be claimed against tax?

          The IHT tax rate of 40% tax rate is currently charged on the estate value exceeding £325K ( first £325K is free of IHT tax ) . The £325K starting level for IHT tax may be raised to £500K level, if the family home is left to children of the deceased person.

          The rent-a-room scheme (rent below £7500 ) applies to a room in your own home.
