    The tax return is always addressed in the name of the "tax payer" i.e the one who is legally obliged to declare his/her annual inome for the year ending 5th April and sign the tax return.

    There is a space inside the Tax Return to name the tax advisor ( accountant firm & address ) - who usually enters the income and expenses claimed on the tax return and asks the tax payer to sign before posting off to tax office.

    Thanks. From the Uk, just after info.

    If you appoint an accountant to do the HMRC tax return, whose name is on the tax return? the accountant? or the landlord?

    ie if the accountant does the tax return, then whose name is is technically declaring the tax income? the landlord? or the accountant?

    This is UK and the owner of the property is called the landlord. The landlord is NOT any friend, any agent or any accountant. The UK tax rules requires the Landlord to submit an annual tax return to HMRC but he can appoint an accountant to do this for him..

    The person paying rent to the landlord is called the tenant .

    Which foreign country do you live in ?

    The landlord doesn't have to be the owner of the property necessarily does he ?

    If a property is rented out, then this is a form of rental income, so it has to be declared to HMRC.

    If the landlord is not the owner of the property, then who is responsible for paying the tax ? the landlord ? or the owner of the property?

    and if the landlord is not the owner of the property then who else can the landlord be?
    an agent?
    a friend?
    an accountant ?

    and how do HMRC contact the landlord if they need to, for tax to the property?

    Can't see any reason this would be an insured event. Agree it is not a capital expense at all....

    If you dont mind me suggesting, If your Insurance Company is rejecting your claim you could get in touch with a Chartered Loss Assessor who would argue with the Insurance Company Loss Adjuster, its worth a phone call to one.

    I rent out a single property, during the winter storms the brickwork was damaged and the cheapest option to repair it was to render the Gable end and rear of the property. I tried to claim on the insurance but they maintained it was due to wear and tear, I am of course disputing this. My question is...

    I think the insurance company were right-the render must have been distressed to suffer storm damage. You can offset cost against income.

    Hmrc rules allow transfers between spouses without cgt. The recipient spouse takes on the asset at the original purchase price.

    I'd say that's a maintenance cost and would be allowed against income.
    It would affect the value of the property, but only to restore it to the level that it was at prior to the damage (plus the general positive effect of any large maintenance work).

    Hello. Since 2013 my wife and I own a property as tenants in common where the beneficial interest split is 90% her and 10% me. We are now looking to sell the property. I have a large CGT loss and using the HMRC CGT calculator I have calculated that if I change the split to 70% me and 30% my wife...

    What you are planning to do is routine and HMRC will accept the change as a matter of routine admin.

    We have a small BTL portolio of five properties. Some are in our personal names and the latter ones in a property company we set up a few years' ago when the tax rules changed.

    I'd really like to find someone who can advise us of the best way of either bringing the personal...
