Slip it in before the 31st Jan while they're snowed under would be my suggestion ­čśü
    Thank you for your reply, based on my workings out above in my past post, I roughly worked out my fine including interest to be around £589.50, excluding interest would be £434.50. (if I have worked things out correctly)

    When you detailed 19.5% penalty, roughly speaking would that mean, 19.5 percent of the £434.50 + 2.5% interest ? making the potential fine £84.72 + 2.5 % interest ?

    Or have I got the wrong end of the stick?

      I'd suggest that you sit down with an accountant and a) take their advice on what can be claimed and what can't and b) let them work the issue through with HMRC.

      Items like "a new bathroom" always worry me, because it normally doesn't mean a whole new room, it means an updated, but existing bathroom, which isn't likely to be a capital expense, but may be partially claimable if it was a significant change.
      A new consumer unit isn't likely to be capital.
      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).

        Hi, Thank you for your reply, the bathroom, after the tenant had moved out was a complete mess, smashed tiles, leaks going down the walls into the kitchen below...the entire room was stripped, replastered, new bathroom suite, ceiling reskimmed, new materials used on the walls instead of tiles, better fan extractors.

        Admittedly it was more like for like, the overall configuration was not changed, the room was not extended

        I do have the end report from when the letting agent came in and took pictures showing how the place had been left, the place had become the kind of place that you wiped your feet on the way out...it was a complete sty, the tenant had smoked in the property, the entire place stank, everything had to go, things that I know I cannot claim on for CGC ( I presume) new carpets, fresh decoration etc.

        Knowing what I know now about property prices and the current property price hikes, the property was agreed for sale in late October 2020, but it took until the 25th of April 2021 before it was completed...mega stressful....but I maybe could have left the property in complete ruins and put it straight on the market in August 2020 when the tenant moved out, but the price hikes had not really kicked in and the situation suggested do it up and sell it, but if no one buys it, leave it in a suitable condition to rent it back out again...but that is all hindsight etc.

        I have managed to make contact with my accountant, she is currently extremely busy with the end of year accounts for many of her clients, I did my 2020/2021 self-assessment last year with her, but she is free next week, so in the meantime, I guess it would be a good idea to dig out and gather all the receipts and make a list of them, costs and get a list for my accountant to discuss with the HMRC in regard to CGT claimable items and also paying the CGT ASAP.

          I'd let the accountant sort it out - their work will drop off after Monday's deadline.
          Lots of these costs sound like they should have been in your 20/21 assessment, and it's possible that it might be sensible to correct that at the same time.

            Thank you, I shall definitely discuss that point with regards to those items been used on the 2020/2021 assessment.

              It would require the consent of the trustees, one of whom could be you and it would have to be in line with the purpose of the trust.
              If you are not acting in the interest of the beneficiaries, they could try and prevent you doing what you propose.

              Hello,
              We have a small BTL portolio of five properties. Some are in our personal names and the latter ones in a property company we set up a few years' ago when the tax rules changed.

              To provide an update.
              I have now got the report from the surveyor, he lists the structural issues and what he saw when he visited the property.

              Few questions.

              I have an existing company that has been going for 3 years or so, it has the following SIC codes

              You'd probably be advised (by a proper grown up legal person) to will it to your children, but into a trust if they're under 18.

              Hello

              I am considering whether to sell my house which has been let for some time and need to see how I can best deal with CGT.

              I lived in the property from 1984 until 2006.

              From 2006 it has been occupied by tenants, now vacant and being renovated.

              You should seek advice from an accountant, or a property tax for tailored advice to your specific circumstances, you may be entitled to some relief if the property at any time was your own principal residence.
