    Expense claim - Name and address in the receipt

    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 rental property address
    Other receipt has no name or address at all

    I am only claiming on any of the one receipt. Which one should I use that will be accepted by HMRC? Any advice please?

    Thanks,

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

        I purchased a shell of a house that was structurally sound but needed complete refurbishment. The house had been ransacked many items. eg All the radiators & copper pipe had been ripped from the walls.
        A builder completed all the work from start to finish. The final cost was an all-in job...

        The underlying principle is that the cost of buying a property in good condition is clearly capital expenditure. Hence the cost of buying a dilapidated property and putting it in good order is also capital expenditure....

        See the following property income manual, from HMRC , may be of some help.

        It may certainly be beneficial to allocate some of those expenses to running costs, electrical work required for the NEIC certainly is solely for the letting. Depends how much profit you are likely to make though, you'll have to do some sums .

        If you purchased a building shell , and had the builder carry out the refurbishment work , then enter all expenses as an improvement in your records. You paid the builder by cheque and should have kept bank statements to show all payments .

        No need to break down the cost into operating...

        I'd suggest that based on that description, all of the work was probably capital.

        Hello. Since 2013 my wife and I own a property as tenants in common where the beneficial interest split is 90% her and 10% me. We are now looking to sell the property. I have a large CGT loss and using the HMRC CGT calculator I have calculated that if I change the split to 70% me and 30% my wife...

        I believe your solicitor has to prepare a Deed of Trust which transfers 60 % interest in the property from wife to you.

        You need to make clear to your solicitor that Deed is for HMRC only and not for registration at Land Registry

        After signing the Deed , you...

        The existing declaration states 10:90 beneficial interest not legal interest

        The Declaration changing the beneficial interest to 70:30 is prepared only for showing to the Tax Office .

        The existing registration of 10% :90% legal interest at Land Registry does not change and the Mortgage Lender has already accepted this situation. .
