    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.

          • Can we claim back the VAT?
            by 529 Charlie
            We are 3 Leaseholders each with a share of the freehold of our shared building. Purchase of our flats meant we also became Directors of a dormant Management Company. We need urgent maintenance/Major Works doing and wondered how and if we can claim back the VAT charged by the builder(s).

            Perhaps the confusion here may be with additional rate SDLT? Buying a new home while still owning previous is an issue in that you will be liable for additional 3% SDLT. However, you can request a refund of this when you sell your previous home, as long as sale occurs within the permitted time - which...

            Thank you for the responses. I have lived there since I bought (more than 5 years) and wants to move to a bigger house. This clears some of my confusion. I thought the property will be empty so why not short term let. But its better not to let while I am selling it. Thanks

            My understanding is it's probably better using the allowance. Is there anything else that can be claimed such as interest on buy-to-let mortgage payments or is this not worth it?...

            Does anyone know of any good online tutorials/guides for filling out your self-assessment tax return? I don't know about you's but I hate filling out forms (they always ask you to tick a box to say the information you've put in is correct too!!)!

            This is my first year filling out the self-assessment...

            I signed up for the 2018/19 tax year as I thought I had to declare this and tax it but they said as I earned less than £2500 in property income for the year I didn't need to complete the self-assessment for that year.

            After watching more videos I am now even more confused . I thought...

            Previously loan interest was an allowable expense which could be deducted from the rental income.

            Now it is no longer an allowable expense so your rental surplus will be higher and you pay will have higher tax. bill.

            However you are allowed to claim 20% of the loan...

            Good afternoon all,

            I've been getting to grips with the changes to landlord's tax relief over the last few years. One thing that worries me considerably is that since all rental income is now taxed, and I must pay my loan interest and repayments out of this also, that really doesn't leave...
