    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?

    14 EICRs isn’t going to dent the income from 14 properties

    its the void periods that cost you

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

        Clearly you were a bit behind on your electrical work!

          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.

                              Hi, new here, sorry if this has been asked already but I can't find the answer.

                              I have just completed my tax return for 2020/21 as a landlord with a few properties. My income was 22k and my outgoings (maintainance, ground rent, insurance, mortgage payments etc) was 18k. The mortgages are...

                              I suspect that you completed the return incorrectly.

                              Yes (if you are spouses)

                              New to this, buy to let property got in 2018 but renewing took time and COVID hit. Rented out since Dec 2020. I had Electrical work done completed in 2019, as had no income I had not filled in self assessment. Can I claim it in this tax year?

                              If it was first let in December 2020, the costs allowable against income prior to that take place on the first day of the first tenancy for tax purposes.

                              So, if you mean can you claim it on a tax return for April 2020 to April 2021, the answer is yes.
                              You can't claim it for this tax...

                              I started my limited company a year before buying the first property, then bought a second 2 months later, a third 3 months after that, a fourth 5 months after that and so on to where I am now.

                              I don't think we disagree.

                              The OP has one property and is looking to buy a second.
                              At that point in that business, lenders will want a company per property.

                              There's a point where that ceases to be the case, when the portfolio gets big enough, or, presumably when someone...

                              i concur with James, once you get over 4 properties, they consider you to be a portfolio landlord and want to start seeing cashflow forecasts before lending to make sure the company is buoyant. Directors guarantees each time but no limits on number of properties or number of dofferent lenders.
