    Return deadline extended

    After just spending a stressful week getting mine in on time;

    https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/h...urns-qtwxwz2zh

    HM Revenue & Customs is to waive late-filing penalties for all workers who complete their tax returns up to a month late, after being warned that millions would miss the deadline because of the pandemic.

    The taxman will not levy fines as long as people completed their returns by February 28.

      Assume you're aware of this Art;

      Residential property owners have had their fair share of tax changes to contend with in recent times. However there is a further matter on the horizon which I don’t think has been particularly well publicised. This concerns a fundamental change to the administration of Capital Gains Tax for sales or other disposals of UK residential property from 6th April 2020. On this date a new 30 day reporting and payment window will come into effect.

      Individuals, trustees and personal representatives realising a taxable capital gain from the sale or other disposal of UK residential property will have to make a ‘residential property return’ and a payment on account of CGT within 30 days of the completion of the disposal.

        Thanks, yes I was. Had the weird experience of paying a 20/21 CGT bill in November 2020 (within the 30 days ) but then for 19/20 tax year income tax also doing CGT for sale that year....paying today.

        I'm alive, I'll settle for that in the present circumstances

          I heard this in an add on the radio yesterday and got confused with mixed message that the SA is delayed until end of Feb 21, but you must complete the SA by 31st Jan. I read the advice on .gov website advising to complete SA by 31st Jan those who can't complete it will not be penalised but interest will be paid.

          Correct me if I interpreted it wrong.

          https://www.gov.uk/government/news/n...by-28-february

          "We want to encourage as many people as possible to file their return on time, so we can calculate their tax bill and help them if they can’t pay it straight away."

          "Taxpayers are still obliged to pay their bill by 31 January. Interest will be charged from 1 February on any outstanding liabilities."

          As long as we are made aware that interest will be charged on remains balance then fine. But I rather save the interest money if I can pay by 31st.

            I am not sure why being locked down at home with nothing else to do somehow makes it harder to file your tax return, Can someone please explain ?

              I’m one of the lucky ones, retired, income not hugely damaged, expenditure seriously down during lock-down, biggest upset is not seeing kids & grand-kids.. No complaints or excuses here, and I’ve done my return. But perhaps a little humanity for others??

              Nothing else to do? Lucky you! (Me, I like to keep active & busy).

              We (me & her..) know of people who’s income has dropped hugely, stone dead for some periods. Businesses they own gone bust, debts. No longer employed, reliant on UC. Living in small flats, already a bit cramped, but now having to “work from home” whilst also having the kids at home during the week, no longer at school, needing space, internet, equipment, supervision, motivation & question-answering with not enough rooms/desks etc to go round. One couple now breaking up, one moved out to pokey flat while still paying large mortgage. Others driving each other bonkers no doubt: The rise in DV & calls for child helplines tells you all.

              Etc etc etc.. People sick - eg cancer - not able to get treatment due to covid, normal support networks stopped (friends, relatives) - not able to sit down and talk things through with your accountant, we’ve all seen the reports of increased impact on mental health. Etc etc etc. I – you - could go on. Doing your tax return might not be #1 priority.

              I make no complaints, and realise I’m one of the lucky ones. Perhaps think of and sympathise a little with those in much much worse circumstances?

              Best wishes to all, stay safe!

                by dotcotton999
                Evening all,

                I am currently looking to move house and also have a rental property that has around £200k equity in it.

                The rental house had consent to let and on a repayment mortgage and has 3 years to go until I can switch deals.

                I have spoken to a mortgage broker...

                D999,

                The taxman's method of calculating :

                Capital gain is the Sale Price ( say £200K ) minus Purchase Price ( say £130K ) = £70K capital gain.

                But buying and selling expenses are allowable and include the conveyancing cost : say £1K plus estate agent'...

                Thank you for your kind words JP and the tips re using an accountant. Having been taxed at source all my working life this is very useful information. I will look round for an accountant. A friend of mine who is also a landlord as well as having a day job has one, so maybe a personal recommendation...

                Thank you for your work in the NHS!

                I've found that the first sessions were the most valuable in terms of what could be saved, and the value has diminished slightly and the costs of the returns being done has stayed the same/slightly increased, so it feels like it's less worth it.

                I been looking at spreadsheets to list my expenses and every template I find seems to allocate expenses per house ie 5 houses = 5 separate sheets whereas I just put everything down on one sheet.
                I would like to know if I have been doing it wrong all these years.

                I use one page of a spreadsheet for all the income and expenses and have other pages which automatically summarise the data property by property.

                When you sell the property, you can't retain any of the equity, so that doesn't really make any sense to me.
                On disposal, the mortgage will end and have to be repaid.

                The value of the rental property when first let is also a limit to the amount of the loan against which interest can...

                Gordon999 thanks for your reply. In regards to CGT so if I was due to sell a house I could request to remove all the equity before the sale and wouldn’t be subject to CGT... that doesn’t seem right.

                In regards to switching my mortgage from repayment to and interest only... would I incur...

                Its good to keep a separate sheet for each property because when you come to sell one house , you may want to show the rental and expenses records for one house to prospective buyers.
