    Tax Allowance on Rental Income.

      You cannot deduct more than the amount of your income and create a loss.

      If you have two businesses and claim the property allowance in one business you may not claim actual expenses in respect of the other business.

      You cannot use this allowance on income from letting a room in your own home under the Rent a Room Scheme.
