    SA for newbuild rental question

    Hi,

    We built a little house and rented it out.

    As its new, I assume cost of carpets, oven/hob cannot be calimed as these are capital? (it's not furnished just carpets and integrated hob/oven)
    I read that new windows are now claimable but as they went in new and not replacing old ones, I assume these cannot be included?

    Any help appreciated.

    Thanks

    If the hob is integrated it's a fitting and a capital item.
    Carpets are furnishings and are neither capital or operating costs (and can't be claimed for) - a clever/disreputable accountant might describe them as "flooring".
    Replacement windows are maintenance (allowable against revenue), but new one's are capital.
    When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
    Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

      Hi, thank you for the response, finally could I include the cost of felling a tree from the garden of the rental?
      Many Thanks

        Yes - as maintenance.

          Hi,

          I'm currently receiving the rental income for my dads properties. I'm currently fully managing the properties for him and the tenants are paying the rent into my account. Once I receive the rent, I pay my dad a fixed amount and I keep the rest. Is this legal? And if so, do I pay tax...

          This is really helpful. My dad has changed the tenancy agreement and named me as landlord, so all payments are made to me. Therefore, all I need to do is declare all the income in the year as income and any payments to my dad, as expenses?

          Also, does this need to be in writing. At the moment...

          It's legal.

          If you're named as the landlord on the tenancy agreements, your business is rent to rent.
          The amount you pay your father is a business expense, so you'll end up paying tax on the profit, but you need to declare the full amount as income and the payment to your father as...

          Wondering if anyone has any experience with one of these please?

          I received a letter from HMRC a few months ago stating they were investigating my property affairs. I was told I could provide documentation regarding it to help but if I didn’t wish then they would complete the check on...

          I know it’s 1% difference but was really asking what the legal implications are of either transferring it into 100/0 or 99/1. I’m not an expert in this field in any way shape or form and am merely asking for advice....

          In your shoes I think I would be asking for a personal interview (maybe on Zoom these days) so you can find out exactly what they require. In my experience I have always found them reasonable and helpful and you can always ask for a supportive friend to also be present if you're nervous.
