    When you complete your tax return, you no longer deduct the interest (and any other finance related costs, e.g. a setup fee) you have paid as an allowable expense.
    You calculate the tax you would pay without that deduction (i.e. income less other expenses at the appropriate rate(s))
    Then you deduct 20% of the finance costs from the tax figure you've calculated.

    There were transitional arrangements in place until the end of the last tax year, so for a 2019/20 tax return 25% of the finance costs can be deducted from income and 75% of these costs are subject to the 20% deduction.

    The 20% credit is automatically applied, you would have been getting it for the last 3 years!

    The only people negatively affected by the change in how the interest can be claimed are higher rate tax payers and standard rate tax payers who were close to the higher rate threshold.

    For most landlords, the change is simply in how the tax is calculated, the outcome is the same.

    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 interest towards reducing your higher tax bill.

  • Changes to Landlords tax relief and landlords tax credit

    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 much left.

    I see that there is a tax credit for 20% for landlords to replace the old relief. I've had a google and I can't seem to find out how one accesses/ applies for this credit. Can someone shed some light on how I might get this?

    Thanks very much,

    Cadence

    Not completely following you artful. There is a PERFECTLY GOOD online form which actually works remarkably well running you through the process. I usually criticise shambolic administration - but in this instance it was fine/good.

    Had a look at a tax forum, this does seem to still be a requirement to report within 30 days but, like so much of Cummings' wonderful administration simply doesn't work & has no IT or paper form operational. Do hope someone can prove me wrong... see

    Myself and partner own the freehold to the building we live in, this is in the form of a limited company. We were accidental freeholders as the previous freeholder wanted to sell and no one else living here wanted to buy it so we bought it to have some control over the service charges etc....

    it applies where someone could exercise their right to compulsorily acquire. we have only claimed the extra statutory concession where an extension is granted strictly clause 56 of the act but it may be allowable on a non statutory extension at a nominal ground rent....

    You should look at the last set of company's accounts and check if the money to pay for purchase of the freehold is shown money as "borrowed from Director" . The situation may well be the company has made a loss £9K- £10K .and the funds held by the company can be paid back to Director to...

    Does that only apply where they "could have" and did, or also if the non statutory option is followed ?...

    My understanding (with the caveat that I'm not an accountant) is that the proceeds are not income but partial disposal, therefore return of capital plus gains. Within a company there's no difference between CGT and income tax, but it does mean that you offset the original acquisition cost....
