    Will they raise taxes again?

    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 that I doubt anyone in the hospitality sector has made a profit at all, (and will likely have losses to carry forward for several years.)

    Are they going to have to raise taxes again next year?

      The EICR's cost around £12k in total.

          Wow.

          So that must be lots of unsatisfactory reports and lots of remedial work.

          so not annual Costa

              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 for a tax increase is to change the CGT rates for property (only) to be the same as income.

                ^^ 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.

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

                  Holding off working out my position, wishing to remain cheerful for Christmas.

                  Best wishes to all

                    Corporation tax for large companies ( over £250K profit ) will be raised from 19% to 25% rate commencing from April 2023.

                      The Daily Mail reported on 29 Oct 2021 the 1.25 p increase for social care levy commencing in 2022 , will take £16 Bil from our pockets. The freezing of personal allowance for income tax at £12570 until 2026 will take £19 Bill by 2025/2026.

                      The Nil rate band for iht at £325,000 has been frozen until April 2026 and number of estates paying iht will rise from 25,400 to estimated 47.700.

                      The tax on share dividend will rise by 1.26 p in the pound.

                        Another candidate for an increase in tax would be to take the 1.5% additional NHS element of NI and apply it to income that doesn't normally attract NI, like CGT - it wouldn't affect most people, would raise a lot of money, and could be presented as a "rich people paying their part" change.

                          BBC website reports on inflation :

                          The cost of living surged by 5.1% in the 12 months to November, up from 4.2% the month before, and its highest level since September 2011.

                            And finally they have raised the base rate - not before IMO.

                              1 - Yes, the company will have to buy the property and you will be selling it. So there's a CGT "event" for you and the business will pay SDLT. You need to think about structure if you're going to borrow to grow, most lenders will want one company per property and director's personal guarantees....

                              Thank you for your responses. Does anyone have any thought on these EIS schemes, are they as safe as an investment in a rental property?. at least with a rental property you (hopefully) get rent every month and also capital growth - any thoughts?

                              thanks

                              Apologies if this has previously been posted, I have searched but can't find much.

                              I have recently moved in with my partner and subsequently started renting out my house. I have been lucky enough to make a 5 figure pre-tax profit (most of which will be sunk into paying off my rather high...

                              Hi,
                              Whilst you can't offset the income from your rental, you can easily contribute from your salaried earnings.

                              So if your property profit is £12500 pre tax. Then make the same contribution through PAYE to your pension. It is just a case of moving money. If your only source of income...

                              Hi,

                              I need to claim an expense (£1500) for the bathroom and attic renovation work done in the property I let. I have two receipts for the same purchase, one originally issued and the second subsequently issued with additional two items.

                              One of these has my address on it, not...

                              The chances of HMRC investigating the claim are very small, and I'd keep both receipts just in case.

                              You can put his half in a bare trust. Do consider the possible consequences though. Your grandson won't be eligible for first time buyer incentives and will have to pay additional stamp duty if he buys his own home.
