    Hi ,I duly sent off my tax self assesements by end of October, at April 2009 I was running at a loss £3387yesterday I received a letter form a Tax Office not the one I sent my paperwork to saying that I owed them £400 on my salary and savings, I work for the NHS so my tax is deducted at source on pAYE and the little bit of money I made on savings is deducted at source, no mention was made of my proerty rental I only had it rented out for 7 months the last financial year I think I only made a £30 profit on the rental, it is worrying on the letter they have made no mention about property income it is a bit worrying of wat the HMRC want to do and I think a phone call is needed

    Suggest looking at your P60. Taking the total sum of all income, bearing in mind what you submitted to HMRC, and plug it into an online tax calculator.

    Try to reconcile what HMRC are doing/not doing. They should have sent you a calculation?

      Hello I have just had a letter from HMRC compliance team, they were not happy with my return,I am still running at a loss, do they normally look a things with a fine tooth comb? I think my arithmatic is correct do they issue penalties if people do things wrong?

      Ironically the letter said tax year til April2011 but I assume they mean April 2012,

      I have been trying without success trying to phone the number it is a 0191 it says number not recognised.

      Inbetween tenants I paid for a gardner to sort out neighbours over hanging trees is that deductable?

      many thanks

          Yes the Gardener is deductible as long as the house was still part of your letting business, i.e. you didn't move in etc.

          Check the HMRC website for contact numbers.

          Are you submitting your SA online? It certainly reduces the ability to make mistakes.

          AFAIK HMRC both choose tax returns at random to check and also have a filtering/alert system. If your return just doesn't add up, looks suspicious or you have been running at a loss for a number of years you are going to be picked up for an 'enquiry': http://www.litrg.org.uk/low-income-w...re_Rev_looking

          Lastly, also in relation to your post from a couple of years ago, remember you cannot offset rental losses against 'earned' income. So HMRC is going to treat your employed wages as a separate issue from your rental income/losses. So it could easily be the case that you have tax to pay on your wages even though you make a rental loss.
          caveat emptor

            1. The calculation of capital gain starts from the date of purchase of your property up to date of your sale date. If you paid 100K and sold for 160K , then your capital gain is 60K. The capital gain during period of living at the property + 18 months after moving away is exempt from capital gains...

            When did you buy it, between what dates did you live in it, rent it out and when do you plan to sell it?

          • Buying BTL and declaration of trust?
            bhodgkiss
            Hi there

            I'm buying a btl with my partner (not married)

            i believe we can do the mortgage under tenants in common (as opposed to joint tenants), then sign a declaration of trust to adjust the income split 99:1 (instead of 50:50). She's doesn't work.

            Is it that simple...

            Many thanks, yes I had read the bit about if one of us dies etc.

            Ok we'll go for the standard joint tenancy, as I believe we can simply draw up a document for her to get 100% income anyway from what's been said here (and other threads)

            There are other differences between married couples and non-married couples that kick in.
            You need to look at the totality of the situation, not focus on one part of it.

            If you are married and one of you dies, the surviving spouse inherits the deceased's property automatically....

            So aside from ownership implications if we ever split up, surely HMRC will be happiest in assessing rental income if we have a tenants in common ownership 99:1?

            Then rental split follows ownership split?

            Also if we get married it'll need to swap to...

            Which is why joint tenants is the better route.
            There's no defined split in ownership.

            How the business then arranges its affairs is then, more or less, up to the business.

            As you are not married, HMRC will look for the real beneficial ownership of the property. The factors such as who put down the deposit, who receives and spends rent, etc will become important. So, if your partner owns 99% of the house, then there would not be any issue from HMRC. But, this means she...

            That's necessary for married couples.

            As unmarried partners you can purchase as joint tenants (which is probably better for you in some other ways) and decide how you split the income.
            You should probably document the income split and both sign it.
