    New stamp duty rules more complex than I thought!

    I must admit I don't remember reading about this aspect of the new rules and may have given people the wrong advice! See http://www.telegraph.co.uk/tax/news/...verpaid-13000/

        Hi Guys, my first post

        Not sure why there is confusion over this, the wording on the uk.gov website is pretty clear:

        The higher rates will apply to most purchases of additional residential properties in England, Wales and Northern Ireland where, at the end of the day of the transaction, individual purchasers own two or more residential properties and are not replacing their main residence
        They even have flow chart to follow...

          Except that isn't actually the case - which is what the first post points out.

          There's no branch on the flow chart that says Did you sell your main residence before November 2015?
          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).

              Just joined PMC as Director and CS and on checking the documents handed to me for storage, there is a massive gap from 2010 to now! I have managed to find through other directors the meetings minutes for the past 9 years, however I am struggling to be given the full accounts. When I ask, I am told I...

              No you can't do that. If the tenant actually broke stuff and you sort it before the tenancy ends, then maybe. At the start of putting a property out to rent you can make tax related expense claims - you can't have a double bite, fixing it for yourself at the other end....

              Hi.

              I was wondering if anyone can provide me with advice.

              I used to live in my own house. I moved for work a few years ago and let my house (with consent to let).

              I'm planning to move back into my house which is currently still let. I've given the tenant three...

              The wear and tear allowance has been removed so you could expense the actual costs of the items as an expense, on a like for like basis, only if you are then renting it out, if it is returning back to a residential property then you couldn't.

              I think its better for Ltd companies to have their annual accounts done by chartered accountant. Very difficult to get any bank loan without showing certified accounts.

              Hi Folks,

              Looking for some general advice. I own 5 BTL properties individually and have 3 BTL properties as a LTD Company. My tax returns are relatively straight forward and I was thinking to do my own tax returns this year. My account charged me GBP1500 for the return for my Ltd Company,...
