    Credit Expert Report

    I pay a monthly subscription to credit expert to monitor my credit so I can obtain a mortgage when ready. Is this a allowable expense as it is for business ?


    Thanks

    I shouldn't think so - I'd be really surprised if you can!

      Agree with claymore, Not sure why you think it assists you obtains a mortgage in any event.

      A lot of these reports are sold very heavily based on fear.

      I have been offered them in the past and always declined and I never have any problems

          I use it once a year or 6mths or so to make sure that there's nothing silly on my account (credit agreements not in my name, incorrectly recorded missed payments etc).

          So far, I've taken advantage of free trials, but I'd have no problem paying a few quid every 6-12 mths to make sure it's all ok.

            I believe one of the things you do when applying for a mortgage is make sure you do not have any bad marks on your credit. And to do this you get your credit report.

              Afternoon All,

              After much help from reading this forum I finally have question.

              I am just in the process of completing the transfer of my BTL into a ltd company.

              My solicitor has settled my personal mortgage and then taken out the new mortgage in the name of the...

              This is not a transfer but a sale and purchase , On a personal basis there is the issue of CGT and for the Ltd co it is unfortunately a case where SDLT becomes payable . .

              I assume you have good reasons for transfer to a ltd company that far outweigh other issues? have you considered establishing a partnership and THEN moving to a ltd company? the reason I ask is because I am also considering it and will be booking an appointment with a recommended advisor in the near...

              As far as I know the accountant is right. This is a sale to a separate party (the company) of the whole. It is NOT a gift of the whole to the company (as in a gift to another party) in which case the solicitor advice would apply. A gift without a mortgage to a person would have no SDLT. I doubt you...

              Thank you, solicitors just confirmed its market value... damm. Never mind. Although I budgeted the SDLT anyway. Thank you again.

              Whichever you go with, make sure they both have adequate professional indemnity insurance in place.

              Evening all,

              We have recently submitted a planning application to convert a small commercial unit in a couple of new apartments. As I understand it the building work will be zero-rated for VAT as we are creating dwellings were none were previously.

              The planners have requested...

            • Short tax return
              samsam
              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.
              Thanks
