    fire doors upgrade requiremet

    due to himo rule change, i have at the local council requirement had to change all doors to fire doors.
    is this a capital expense or general maintance?

    I think it is a bit of a grey zone. What you cannot do is charge it to both. Grey zones you can (within limits) do what suits you, as long as it is consistent. Bear in mind it may not be a capital expense either in the long run if you take that route (for example if you ever replace the doors again before you sell it, or if you never sell it).

      I agree with MrDod.
      I'd have tended to them being maintenance, because the impact on the value of the building itself is minimal.
      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).

          There's a reason that the HMRC documents are guidance, not regulations.

            Hi

            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...

            To answer your question - Capital gains tax is exempt on capital gains from disposal of main residence.

            So gifting 50% of your current home ( main residence ) to your son will be free of sdlt and cgt. You can continue to stay in the property without paying rent because you still own...

            The capital gains after sale of BTL property is calculated from "sale proceeds" minus "acquisition cost" including costs charged by estate agent and conveyancing solicitor costs.

            For example : If the sale proceeds after deducting selling costs , was £78,000 and original...

            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...

            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...

            Hi jpkeates, I understood that a repair could be counted, but we chose to replace the whole roof, rather than go for just a repair...

            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.
