    If you sell , you will be charged tax at 18% or 28% on the "capital gains less the capital gains allowance( £12,300 )"

    If you die , the "assets under your name" will become part of your "estate" and the executor will be required to pay tax at 40% on the estate value after deducting the first £325K or first £500K if the "family home" is left to the children before distribution of assets.

    If your wife disposes of the property, her capital gain will be calculated from sale proceeds less acquisition cost ( 10% interest at original cost + 90% interest at probate valuation ) .

      • Tax question. relief for finance costs reduced to maximum allowable
        by jackboy
        Hi,

        Quick question for my tax return. My mortgage interest costs this year were £67,710.19 so £16,667.55 went through as a deduction and £50k odd went into the box to calculate the relief for finance costs. But instead of calculating 20% on the £50k it has reduced this to the maximum...

        You can write to hmrc and ask for a statement showing how they calculated your tax ( on form SA302 ).

        Hardly, the stamp duty tax was eye watering and the other expenses involved including remortgaging costs, solicitors fee, tax advice etc etc amounted to a large expense but it was teh only way forward if i wanted to expand. The personal borrowing restrictions that apply to individuals don't apply to...

        Was incorporation solely for tax reasons?

        Just to add a bit more info. I've recently incorporated all my properties. Instead of paying a punitive tax bill I chose to spend money on refurbishments effectively reducing my profit to zero. I did this as i basically got a 40% discount on any refurbishment work and then transferred everything over...

        Your accountant should provide you with a sample spreadsheet to suit his system.

        For my own use , I have a separate spreadsheet for each property and "column headings" ( left to right ) are shown below :

        1. Date ( entries going down )
        2. Monthly Rent income...

        not too tricky

        I also just hand all my receipts etc over to my accountant. If I had to go to the trouble of entering everything into a spreadsheet, or entering things online, then I might as well do the tax return myself.

        The whole point of using the accountant, is that it is one less thing for me to...
