    tax return

    Hello All,

    This year I will have had my property rented out from Oct - March from a tax perspective, I believe this will mean 6 months worth of income. I have a few questions....

    1. When filling out my tax return With things like building insurnace can i just cut my yearly premium in half when offsetting the tax as I'll have only been renting the place for half of the year? or is this silly.

    2. If I have to remorgage before March can I ofset the remorgage costs?

    I'm just in the process of buying my first property as a Ltd company and I have gotten FreeAgent accounting software free with my bank account.

    I have a list of categories to assign to my expenses, but they aren't all that relevant to residential property businesses. I wondered if others...

  • Higher rate LTT or not?

    Hi my partner and I are looking to sell one of our rentals and our residential property and buy a larger property.

    I'm confused whether we will be charged the higher rate land transaction tax due to owning a third property that we own that will not be sold as of yet. It was our previous...

    What you record for your own purposes is up to you, but for purposes of tax return, for just one property, and rent < 80K, can just pop it all into "Other expenses" - so long as you can resurrect it when HMRC audits you.

    At least that applies to individual self assessment,...
