    You know this new 'expense'..?

    This new SDLT that is expected to hit us very shortly... 3%... so a £100,000 house will cost you £103,000... is that extra £3,000 an allowable expense? It's an expense incurred through purchase of the property and running of the business...

    Yes, AIUI, against CGT when you sell, against CURRENT RULES. Not for Income Tax (which was only brought in December 1798 to pay for fighting the French.......plus ça change..)
    see e.g.
    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/p...e-profits.html

    But FK what the chancellor may do this budget or all the other budgets between now & when you sell.. (either to the advantage of wicked landlords or to their disadvantage...)

    Property, it's a long-term game....

      Wow. I was kinda kidding / having a laugh. Ideally, it would be nice to have it as an allowable expense when it's incurred... but if there's ever real chance to count it, legally, that's nice. That £3,000 is [almost] immediately nearly halved.

      Always good to keep some money back to fight the French, just in case.

            Of course if 3% were to become 10% or 20% all would be well in the world, as legislation is always correct.

            (Note, those who haven't read mine and Hippos recent discussion in another thread will not get tbe joke.)

              Well, it would be correct and agreed to... I would not be buying any property, though. I'm in the throes of buying my last one and we're hoping to avoid the 3%, but the Vendor has agreed to drop his price by that amount if we do not. Still a bit edgy about it. Sadly, I learned from my Solicitor today that his Solicitor has "gone bust"... verified as I walked past their office today! Spanner, meet Works.

                Well, saw the Budgie!, and at least the bigger (15+) Landlords now appear to be in the same boat as lil' ole me.

                • Tax implications of remortgaging home for a deposit on a BTL
                  by Jerry777
                  Hi

                  I would be grateful if anyone could help with this query.

                  I am remortgaging my home to raise a deposit for a BTL property, and I wondered when I submit my SA tax return, if I would be entitled to a tax credit for the interest on the residential mortgage in the same way as...

                  You should keep some documentary evidence to show the mortgage loan money raised on house was applied towards purchase of the BTL property.

                  Yes, provided the loan is for the purposes of the business, it's a business expense.

                  The first period used as main residence is 3 years plus 9 months after moving away. The second period as main residence is 2 years.

                  So out of 10 years ownership , the total capital gain is apportioned 5 years plus 9 months as "main residence and 4 years and 3 months under rental...

                • Capital Gain Tax on main home, but let in the past
                  by Gep
                  Hi all,
                  I'm thinking about selling my flat and trying to workout how much capital gain tax I would have to pay.
                  ​​Accordingly to the HMRC website the rate is 28% if you let the property out, but I'm currently living there so I'm not sure.

                  I've owned the property for 10 years:...

                  If you want to keep both houses and rent out one house, you should visit 3 local estate agents and make enquiries with lettings manager :

                  1. If you decide to sell father 's house now, the capital gain will come mainly from your own half share .

                  If the capital gain on your half share is around £50K , the cgt tax may be around £50K less £12K allowance = £38K at 18% = £7K .

                  The capital gain on the half...
