    What portion of rental income is taxable?

    Hi I am about to let out my property and I,m new to taxation.

    Please can someone tell me what part of rent received is taxable?

    For eg:

    My mortgage is £400 pm
    Letting agent fee £50pm
    Rent received £700pm

    I want to put £400 back every month to pay the mortgage.

    How does it work.

    Thanks

    Of that £400 mortgage payment each month, how much is interest and how much is capital repayment?

      It's about £80 interest per month and the rest is capital.

      Thanks

        You can only claim the Interest NO capital is deductible from the Rental income. I suggest you but a couple of good books on the subject.
        I assume you have permission for the change of use from your mortgage provider, it is a requirement in the T&C's and failure to do so can lead to the property being repossessed.
        Do you have a gas safety certificate ( LAw ) and Electrical Certificate ( recommended every 5 years ) Regards Peter

          Hi, yes I have consent to let from my lender and its all sorted. So the capital portion of my rent will be taxable?

            Errr... the capital portion of your mortgage isn't tax deductible.

              I'll put it another way for you. The capital payments to your provider has nothing to do with your rental business. Only the 'Interest' element is deductible from your gross rental income. Regards Peter

                Surely this depends on his overall income and tax band?

                If this is all income then a higher rate tax could apply.......No?

                    Well, Peter, I will of course take guidance from you, but....we run a number of rental properties as a company for which we pay all the relevent tax etc, then I also have a day to day job which pays reasonably well, I now own my parents house which I thought about renting out, however I am told that any income from that property will class as additional earnings and hence, taxable income, I am alreaday a high rate tax payer so this just adds to it?

                    Or am I going mad?

                    Thanks.

                          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" chang...

                          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...

                          The PRR is based on the proportion of time you have the property as your residence (currently plus 9 months) compared with the total period of ownership.
                          So the calculation should be relatively simple.
                          For every day you live there, you get one day more additional tax free period (and one...

                          I wondered if anyone else has been in this situation and what would you do about it? I now only own the one property (and live in it), but due to substantial renovation period before moving in the CGT will only increase now (assuming HPI increasing at 3.6% which is not unreasonable). I didn't understand...

                          Hi Gordon, unfortunately it was not, hence the question.

                          If the property has been your "main residence" since purchase, there is no tax on capital gain .

                          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.

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

                          There seems to be 2 problems ( I am not an accountant ) :

                          (1.) The company has to pay £30,000 tax due to revaluation of property asset increased higher by £150,000 ( estimated). Does it have the cash in its bank account to pay ?
