    tax help

    unable to sell my property so i am thinking about renting it out. can anyone work out how much tax i would have to pay please.
    rental income = 450
    interest only mortgage = 180
    house value 85000
    house is in joint names. income 22000 and 28000
    i understand things are tax deductible like repairs but for now just class them as zero.

    Briefly :

    Only the net profit for the Tax Year (6 April to 5 April) is taxable. Net profit is Income less allowable expenses. Your share is 50% and will be taxable at your highest rate of tax.

      You would also be able to claim 10 per cent wear and tear if letting furnished and there are plenty of other things to offset against the tax, such as buildings insurance, mileage for visiting the property - viewings, inspections, maintenance issues.

      I wouldn't have thought your tax bill at the end of each year would amount to a great deal.

      Make sure you inform the HMRC as they will sting you with late penalties and fines.

        It worries me that you can not work that out yourselt. However £324 each is the answer. Regards Peter

          the maths was not the problem peter i just wasn't sure how it worked if it were in joint names but from your figures we obviously pay 10% each.
          thanks everyone

            From the figures given in your first post,

            You would pay 20% each. The rental income is added to your earned income.

              Each of the joint owners would have to declare their share of the rental profit in their annual tax return.

              Jt Owner Share of Rental Income = 450 x 50% x 12 months = 2700

              Jt Owner Share of loan interest expenses = 180 x 50% x 12 months = 1080

              Rental Profit =2700 - 1080 = 1620

              Estimated Tax on 1620 at 20% = 324 ( to pay by each joint owner )

                that makes perfect sense thank you. when i said 10% i just meant 10% each of the total profit or 20% each if you have already divided the profit 50/50.

                next thing would be tax deductible things like home insurance(200 pound) is this all tax deductible or just the vat on it. eg £200 or £40

                  Buildings insurance is a revenue deduction as are many other costs. I suggest you get a book on the subject and read up. Regards Peter

                    I took that advice from another post and bought the tax café book, it covers everything you might need to know !!

                      jpkeates,

                      the other directors can't withhold information from them - I am my husband's agent as he has dyslexia and has difficulty with all this. This has been explained to the director but he does not like me and chooses not to recognise in that case anything I/my husband writes.
                      ...

                      Hi, Please can someone tell me if Corporation Tax only becomes payable to the IR on sale of an asset.
                      My husband is a director of a property development company - there are only 3 directors.
                      He wants to leave and there is no communication with the other directors and it is difficult to get...

                      If your husband is a director, the other directors can't withhold information from them; unless there are some very specific rules in the company articles - and they wouldn't normally be appropriate in a property development business (which are usually set up with boilerplate documentation).
                      The...

                      Thanks Gordon999. I have been phoning around about this today. This is a property development Ltd co. it had problems and so in 5 years only managed to develop 1 property - a house into flats. My husband owns one third of the company.

                      It is not being sold. The other directors need to...

                      The company pay CT on the "trading profit" reported in the annual accounts.( which are filed annually at Companies House).

                      After the asset (the building) has been sold, the trading profit will be reported in the next annual accounts by accountant and CT will be payable to...

                      Hello everyone. Can I rent my 4 bed property to students and holiday makers at the same time? For example 3 bedrooms will be used for students and 1 bedroom will be used as a holiday let. Would this have any tax/council tax implications? Would it be classed as a holiday let and be liable for business...
