    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.
    But, obviously, some of the savings recur each year and there's a lot less stress.

    And the accountancy costs seem acceptable as business expenses (although, as far as I can see they shouldn't really be).
    So you get the standard tax payer's "discount."
    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).


      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 is the way to go. Thanks again.

        Taxes bound to go up, huge amounts to pay for Covid & BR*X*it. Death & taxes, death & taxes.

        Best wishes to all...

        My accountant just finished my 2020/21 tax return, and my income is half of the previous year. I did not think it would be quite that bad. (Half my tenants moved out, and I had a job to replace them. Plus had to get fourteen EICR's!)

        I'm guessing you guys are in a similar boat. Never mind...

        ^^ please don’t take this the wrong way but £10 k down on what turnover or number of properties?

        i’ve done a lot of EICRs and remedial work over the last 18 months and a lot of it was because properties hadn’t been inspected and some were just dangerous....

        I'm about £10k down and it's mostly electrical work.

        I can't see this government putting up taxes anymore before the next election, although there's nothing to say that they won't figure out how to tax landlords more specifically - there's few votes lost there.

        My candidate...

        the other directors can't withhold information from them - I am my husband's agent as he has dyslexia and has difficulty with all this. This has been explained to the director but he does not like me and chooses not to recognise in that case anything I/my husband writes.
