    Clarification SA105 box 25 (renewals) & box 36 (repairs)

    Hi folks

    I have read & re-read the SA105-notes, but for the avoidance of doubt I would appreciate your view on this.

    I have a furnished flat on AST, now periodic tenancy. In the year I have done repairs (e.g. new tap parts £10) and replacements (e.g. new fridge £300).

    SA-105-notes explains for box 25,

    "Repairs
    Include in box 25 expenses that prevent the property from deteriorating such as ... <it then gives examples of maintenance type expenditure>
    Renewals
    If you are not claiming capital allowances or the wear and tear allowance, you can claim the costs of replacing furniture, furnishings and machinery supplied with your property..."

    And for box 36 it says,

    " ... you may claim a renewals deduction for the renewal of all such items in box 25 (renewals). Or, you may elect for a 10% wear and tear allowance by making an entry in box 36. But you cannot have both."
    (My emphasis)


    So, my understanding is if I elect for the 10% allowance in box 36 then I can still claim the £10 tap repair under box 25 as it was a repair (not a renewal) but I can not claim for the £300 fridge (as this was a renewal).

    Am I right?

    Thanks

    You are correct.

        Considering selling our rental property and trying to estimate how much CGT is due. We are both basic rate tax payers and the gain from the property will take us into higher rate, so the amount of tax we pay will depend on income for that year – it does vary year to year. I presume the relevant income...

        Yes

        You do, or better an accountant but essentially you report and pay the gain at HMRC https://www.gov.uk/report-and-pay-yo...r-6-april-2020 estimating what you need to, and then report it again essentially in your tax return...

        Hello again.

        Just wondering if someone can advise.

        If I sell a BTL to my children who do not own their own property, I understand that they'll get the stamp duty relief.... two questions then.

        If they're buying the £350,000 jointly, does the relief count for...

        If the buyers are going to rent the property while they go to university, it may meet the criteria for Stamp Duty Relief but it may not.
        It would be unusual for siblings leaving university to be able to commit to cohabit in a particular place when they graduate.

        There's obviously...

        Apart from anything else, if you are selling the property to the kids, you are getting cash and they have a 100% mortgage - and then they are not actually paying a mortgage on 100% of 350K you will be paying it -- it is not a classic GROB, but risks falling foul of GROB rules - so when you die, even...
