    Self Assessment

    I let my property in November 2011, I am about to complete a tax return for that period, however someone has told me that I should have done this before January 2012 and because I have not I could be fined about £1000. Grateful if someone could clarify this. Regard

    You need to complete a tax return to show how much you made for the period November 2011 - April 5th 2012, but if you do it online you have until January 31st 2013. If you are doing it on paper you only have until October 31st 2012.

    And the fine for late submission is nowhere like £1000 - nearer £100, I think.

    If this is new territory for you, I strongly advise you to engage the services of an accountant - at least for your first tax return. They can advise you about all the things you can offset against tax and in many cases they save you more money than they cost you to employ them.

      Thank you for your response. If an accountant does it on my behalf, does he have until the end of Jan 2013 to submit

          If they are left with a house bought 50 years ago and nothing else it certainly hasn't been a financially productive life has it? Either they have earned very little or spent quite a lot. Seems a bit odd to then think there would be anything left for the kids after either scenario....

          Elderly parents in early 80s, one in not so good health.

          Lived in the same home (no mortgage etc) for 50+ years - now worth approx £180,000 - £200,000 and they have minimal savings.

          Looking ahead, if one has to go into care (or council provided home care) I understand there...

          The house is being exchanged for the provision of care .Why should the family inherit the house, benefit from a windfall, and expect others to fund their parental care? The family could fund the care and then house could be inherited as and when the parents pass on.. There is also equity release as...

          I'm not even sure the £86000 lifetime limit has come into being yet. I also think the care home fees have to have the personal care cost element removed.

          Two points:

          1. Why should the tax payer pick up the bill for the parents care if they have assets? I really don't understand this point of view.

          2. I would rather pay for my care and get a choice than rely on the Council & get possible a worse standard of care.

          I'm not quite quite sure why you think they are being robbed? They have assets so can afford to pay for themselves. I would consider the council tax payers - many of whom can only dream of owning their own home - to have been robbed if they have to pay for it.
          Totally agree about those who could...
