    Claiming Subsistence for Landlords

    My accountant has always stated that claiming subsistence is NOT allowed when visiting any property in a personal capacity.

    However if I am self employed and traveling away from my home address to visit/manage properties then I feel this is questionnable as trips are not part of say a normal daily commute.

    Would be grateful to hear whether any members do claim subsistence. I am not talking about full blown meals but simply a sandwich/drink etc.

    Thanks

    I claim hotel costs when away from home. Though I do pay for my own lunches, as obviously I would have to pay something for my own food at home.
    To save them chiming in, JPKeates, Theartfullodger, Boletus, Mindthegap, Macromia, Holy Cow & Ted.E.Bear think the opposite of me on almost every subject.

        I always claim when I'm away from home at seminars etc. Cup of coffee at home = 10p, at venue - £3.

        May not be correct but I'll let the HMRC tell me otherwise if I get audited.

          The lesson here is never visit your property in a "personal capacity".

          Do it in "Landlord capacity" to address tenant's complaint or check repair work completed before paying bill or check flat after tenant's departure etc .

            Your tax situation in Australian depends on whether you’re a permanent resident/citizen or a temporary resident. If you’re a temporary resident you find yourself in tax sweet spot where HMRC doesn’t care about your Australian income and assets and the ATO doesn’t care about your UK income and...

            Hi All,
            I have a property I used to manage myself. The tenant paid me directly and I never declared it with the taxman. Going forward I have decided to use a letting agent to manage all of this. I currently reside abroad and when filling in the forms there is question which essentially is asking...

            If you are living overseas, you must register as a non-resident landlord using NRL1 form to Tax Office if you receive rental income from a UK property. If you don't register , the letting agent is required to deduct 25% tax on any rental money paid to you.

            After being registered...

            There's a "not quite an amnesty" operating at the moment.

            Thanks JPkeates, I knew you'd know!

            I've been thinking of reporting it for a while. If I declare these past "earnings" do you think I'll just have to pay the tax (if there is any) or do you think there will be any penalties? Penalties are usually applied when you are caught out...

            I don't know what the situation is with Australian tax on UK rented property, and you'd probably better enquire locally.

            There are two different things to address.
            If you've been receiving income and not declaring it, you need to own up and pay what you owe - which sounds like nothing...

            Your questions are more complicated than you imagine.

            1) Yes, firstly as a non resident landlord, the agent or indeed tenants have to deduct tax at source, or you have to send off a form, but also wait for HMRC to send confirmation that they think it is okay for you not to have the tax...

            I've had a buy-to-let on a standard Assured Shorthold Tenancy for a few years and my tax return has been pretty simple. But since last year I have also had two lodgers, staying with me at my own residential property. Now I have purchased a small additional property, which I have moved into myself and...

            Even if you don’t need a licence, managing an HMO can be quite onerous. You’ll need a fire risk assessment, and then to comply with its requirements as a first step.

            That usually means fire retardant doors, different door locks, hard wired fire and smoke and heat alarms for a start....

            Thanks. Yes I checked the local authority who said that only "large" HMOs have to be licensed, and that counts as 5 or more tenants.

            I had no idea that separate TV licences would be required. How do HMO landlords usually handle this?
            (a) should I purchase three additional...
