  • Brand New - Recommend a Manchester Based ACCT.

    Ok, brand new to all the BTL milarky and am about to buy my first (and maybe only) property, both my wife and i work full time and would like to hear from anyone who can recommend a tax person who could assist (ie do) all the relevant tax forms etc i know i need to complete with getting a BTL.
    I live just outside Manchester.

    Thanks.

    Is it worth employing an accountant to do the tax return if it is only one property? It's very easy to do an on-line self assessment. If you phone the tax office, they will send you the paper work to fill out (and instruction booklet) plus give you the option to do your return on line.

    But, if you are like me and leave things to the last minute, probably best to get an accountant! Sorry I don't know of any in your area.

      Thanks for that, i thought it would be complicated, i will give them a bell and have a look at it all prior to trying to find an accountant.

        How are you going to own the property and have you considered how to minimise your Income Tax. Regards Peter

          Hi, i was going to have it on a BTL with a 25% deposit on a repayment mortgage and the minimising of my tax is why i wanted to speak with an accountant. I intend to have it over 15 years with, of course, the intention of owning it outright after that period, both my wife and i work full time.

            I purchased a flat which needed a bit of work done on it, no doubt some would have rented as is. The kitchen had 3 different kitchen units in for some reason with all different doors, it was cheaper to install new kitchen than replacing doors, fitted a bath cause there was no bath before, just a homemade...

            YOU didn't buy for cash (hopefully...) the corporate body did.

            Now, how did the company come by all that cash?

            Who's/what's bank account was used to pay?

            Investigation of both you (human) & company (not human) could be expensive, long drawn-out & painful....

            I think I'd get a new accountant.

            Over the life of the business, you might end up paying less tax this way - if corporation tax reduces, the tax cost of any gain will be less than the tax cost of the expenses, but that's a remote future event against a tax payment this year.

            In 2016-2017 i purchased 2 properties, both cash so no mortgage repayments etc. I have asked a few questions in relation to what is a maintenance/repair expense or capital and i thank you for the answers. I submitted my end of year accounts to my accountant, when i submitted them i stipulated that i...

            vik2001
            Im trying to figure out whether im going to be a high rate 28% or low rate 18% tax rate payer on CGT when selling my property.
            is this how I work it out for 2017/18:

            Work Salary before tax deductions is £40,000
            Personal Allowance 2017/18 is £11,500
            £40000-11,500 =...

          • VAT paid on Apartment block maintenance
            lampshade
            Hi All.
            Hope someone can shed light on the following. I own a lease in a purpose built block of flats (30 in 3 linked blocks, with 3 separate entrances).
            We all pay our service charges as requested the freeholders appointed service/managing agent.
            The question I...

            One of my sources for the uncertainty as to whether money should be accounted as going through the agent's books is sections 1.2.2 and 1.2.4 of ICAEW TECH/03/11 https://www.icaew.com/-/media/corpor...ce-charge-acco...

            Whilst this is considered current best practice, and is in the RICS guidelines, the legislation that would have put it into effect was never "commenced", so it isn't a legal requirement. It is still true that it isn't the managing agent's money; it belongs to the service charge trust fund,...

            https://www.gov.uk/capital-gains-tax/rates seems to confirm jpkeates worst fears.

            I would add that there are number of things, e.g. pension contributions not paid by the employer, and gift aid, that you can offset against the work salary. Additional income must be added, although, if that...
