    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.


    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.

          • Short tax return
            I have one letting property. I have always used a short tax return which has been fine for giving totals of rent and costs inc mortgage interest. Now that the allowance for mortgage interest is reducing by 25% every year how do I show the figures? Whichever tax return I use, do I do the calculations...

            Apologies, I failed to include Theresa's link:

            Sorry artful, I don't understand why you are asking me that. I haven't checked against Thersa's document (what is that?). I just want to know how I show the reduced mortgage interest claim against profit.

            When you checked against Theresa's document here, what did you conclude? What total profit & what total rental income please?

          • Reply to How to tax expenses and interest in joint house (husband/wife)
            If the property is registered under both names ( H & W) as " joint tenants" at Land Registry, both tenants have legal entitlement to the property. The Tax Office will assume the joint income is shared 50:50 and each person must declare 50% income in their tax return. The Tax Office...

            Please can someone clarify what HMRC is referring to with the statement below
            If the larger share is given outright as a gift

            If you take a bigger share but don’t pay anything in return, there’s no ‘consideration’ given including taking on liability for a mortgage. You...

          • Reply to Beneficial Ownership Change & SDLT
            Just picking up on this thread. I'm still not clear on the consideration point where there is a mortgage that both parties are jointly responsible for. Can the DoT be written such to confirm that only net equity is being transferred, therefore no consideration and no SDLT? The 3% additional rate is...
