    Accountancy Fees

    Hi Folks,

    Looking for some general advice. I own 5 BTL properties individually and have 3 BTL properties as a LTD Company. My tax returns are relatively straight forward and I was thinking to do my own tax returns this year. My account charged me GBP1500 for the return for my Ltd Company, more than what they charged me for my personal tax return. They are based City Centre based (Glasgow) and so I expect their fees to be slightly higher than an out of town accountant. I just want to get a feel for whether or not 1500quid is about the right fee to pay for 3 BTL's as a LTD company.

    Any guidance would be much appreciated.

    Thanks.

    You can do better by online search for another accounting firm or look for a accounting firm trading in the suburbs of your town .

    Alternatively look at this website : https://www.theaccountancy.co.uk/who...ny-accountants

      Do it yourself. No need for limited company accounts to be prepared by chartered accountant any longer and yours will be simple.
      Joint filing with companies house / hmrc guides you through it

        I think its better for Ltd companies to have their annual accounts done by chartered accountant. Very difficult to get any bank loan without showing certified accounts.

            ok - I had a surveyor down recently who told me my BTL needs attention to guttering and new fasicas as they are in need of sorting out - had a roofer quote me but also told me the tiles needed replacing on roof as they are missing in areas and letting in water , i know this to be true as I looked at...

            2 years ago, we had a complete new roof, new facsias and soffits, and new guttering fitted for our own home. Never even thought about mentioning it to the insurance or mortgage provider. Why did you?...

            As JPKeates says - the value on the date of gifting. I would gather together some evidence of the value so you can back it up when you need to to HMRC.

            If I were to gift unencumbered properties to my adult children what would be their baseline for calculating CGT? Would it be zero (the price they paid) or would it be the price I paid or would it be based on market value when gifted? Or none of the above?

            It would be the market value on the date of transfer.

            I recenly engaged a new accountant who questioned the extent to which I was claiming for repairs.She suggested I was claiming too high a proprtion of gross rents.I believe in repairing and redecorating whenever a property falls empty,as it makes the house easier to let,and makes tenants willing to...
