    Dormant company

    I set up a company with a business partner last year for property investment. But for many reasons we have not done anything with the company during the year but i only took all shares from him with zero consideration.

    In this case, can this company be treated as a dormant company as the AA02 states "only transaction entered into the accounting
    records of the company is the issue of subscriber shares"?

    Thanks

    Its treated as a dormant company if the company has no income and no expenses ( excluding the annual fee paid to Companies House).

      by josswallace
      If we take the case of a person who owns a flat in London and then decides to buy a second property in the country, my understanding is that the individual can choose which property to nominate as his main residence.

      In some circumstances the person may want to keep the flat as work/social...

      If you are paying council tax and all the bills on both places I can't see how they would know the % time you spend in each. Council tax alone is not the crux. Is anyone else staying there, paying rent.

      You also can't re-decide every year or two as it suits you.

      By the way...

    • Service charge
      by Barrington
      Can you claim service charge as a taxable expense even if it wasn't officially paid? We were originally the freehold of the building of two flats so we charged a service charge to the other flat and we paid ourselves. However we have now sold a share of the freehold to the other flat, so we stopped...

      You can't claim for a cost that isn't incurred (if accounting on the cash basis) or which is not ever due to be paid (if accounting on the accrual basis).
      You can claim for the actual repair costs that are incurred.

      You can only nominate your main residence if you genuinely live in both of them.
      And "occasional weekend / holiday home" wouldn't qualify.

      HMRC have every right to decline a nomination and have 6 years from any tax event to start to investigate and require proof.

    • Can I offset residential mortgage interest against BTL?
      by Fothers1987
      Hi All,

      I am in the purchase of remortgaging BTL my home and buying a new house.

      I wondered whether it would be possible to claim tax relief against the interest repayments of my new property against the profits of my BTL? In other words working out the interest on my residential...

      If I've understood correctly, you already own the BTL property, so there's nothing to purchase.
      You're actually taking equity out of the BTL property to buy your new home....

      I think the comparison is based on £1.5 billion lost in benefits fraud (and nearly 3 times as much lost in "errors") versus HM Revenue and Customs estimates that it lost about £2.7 billion through tax avoidance and £4.4 billion through tax evasion.

      HMRC estimates that about...

      Can I clarify that you're doing Let to Buy? i.e. you are renting out your current home after extracting some equity from it during the remortgage, to be used as deposit for the new primary residence?

      On the assumption you are, the interest on the increased mortgage in the BTL is allowable,...
