    Travel expenses for visiting property

    What can you claim for petrol visiting your property? I have a ~500 mile round trip and visit twice a year.

    Thanks

    Provided the visit is solely and exclusively for business purposes, you can either claim actual costs incurred, or 45p a mile.
    You can't switch between the two types of claim, though, so most people just use the 45p (up to 10,000 miles per annum).
    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).

        500 miles? I have a property with 1,000 mile + round trip, 10 hours each way.

        If agent managing it mileage should I think only be claimed from agent's office. If agent managing it, why the trip?
        I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

            I did claim 1539 miles this year as I had to return to the property and didn't wish to delegate. Fingers crossed

              By the same token if you go there by train can you put that down as an expense when doing HMRC self assessment ?

                If you have incurred the cost by actually having travelled by train, and it's wholly and exclusively incurred in the course of business, yes.

                  Do you enter mileage in the 'Allowable Property expenses' tab in the form?

                    Thanks Jon66. I visit a few times a year solely for property management so good to know I can offset.
                    I’ll start keeping receipts!

                      Hello, I have recently sold one of my btl properties.
                      I have submitted my draft cgt calculation figures to my accountant.
                      In my figures I have included an original mortgage arrangement fee of £1300.
                      My accountant has informed me that the original fee is not an allowable expense for...

                      Period as your "main residence" = 25 years plus 9 months after moving away is exempt for cgt.

                      Period under letting = 3 years -9 months = 2.25 years .

                      Taxable capital gain = £135K x 2.25 /28 = £10,850 which is below your annual capital gains allowance.= £0...

                      Your accountant is correct, the mortgage fees are finance costs (like the interest) and are subject to the restricted allowance against income.

                      I don't know anyone who actually does apportion them over the mortgage term, but that is the correct treatment.
                      Most people treat them as...

                      by DaddyofTwo
                      Hi

                      About to purchase a new main home for my family and going to buying cash to hopefully avoid stamp duty holiday expiry (it'll be below £500k).

                      We won't have the time to sell our current home, and might want to keep it anyway as a BTL to add to our current portfolio which...

                      You’re correct if the property is in England. Should be no CGT if always was your home and company pays just the 3% additional rate if value below £500k. Even if solicitors can’t get the job done by 31 March, it’s still possible to document the transfer of beneficial interest. This might be handy...

                      Hi,

                      You can only expense things that are wholly and exclusively for the purposes of the business.
                      I don't see how that would qualify because most of it is for the purpose of living in Spain, not for the business.

                      No one does monthly inspections and it's obviously an attempt to funnel...

                      I think that HMRC will not allow 100% - I would say he should call them and ask
