Tax and Accounting FAQs for Landlords
As a landlord, understanding the complexities of tax regulations can often feel like navigating a maze. From income tax to capital gains tax, there are various considerations that can impact your financial obligations and bottom line. As accountants for landlords, we aim to address some of the most common FAQs that landlords have when it comes to tax.
So, if you’re looking to demystify the UK tax system and gain a clearer understanding of what it means to be a tax-smart landlord, keep reading.
What are the key tax obligations for landlords that own property in their own name?
Being a landlord in the UK means dealing with various types of taxes. It’s important to have a clear understanding of these taxes to ensure compliance and minimise your tax liability.
Income Tax: As a landlord, your rental profits are subject to income tax. This means you need to report your rental profits on your annual tax return. The amount of tax you’ll pay depends on your overall income and the tax band you fall into.
Capital Gains Tax: If you sell a rental property and make a profit, you may be liable to pay capital gains tax. This tax is calculated based on the gain you make when you sell the property, minus any allowable deductions and exemptions.
Land Transaction Tax (Wales)/Stamp Duty Land Tax (England): When you purchase a property, you may be required to pay tax. The amount you’ll pay depends on the value of the property and whether it’s your first property or an additional one.
Is rental income taxed at the same rate as regular income?
If you own the rental property personally, then rental income is taxed at your applicable income tax rate, which depends on your overall income and the tax band you fall into.
Can I deduct any expenses from my rental income?
Yes, some common allowable expenses property maintenance and repairs, insurance costs, letting agent fees, and advertising expenses. Mortgage interest can also be offset but there are special rules.
As a landlord it’s important to understand which expenses are allowable and keep accurate records to support your claims.
If my I make a rental loss how can it be used?
Generally, a rental loss can be carried forward to be used against future rental profits. In some specific circumstances there may be other options available.
I am looking for an accountant for landlords, but don’t live near one of your offices, can you still help?
Yes! We act for clients in many different parts of the UK and overseas who decide to use us for our expertise. We can deal with matters electronically via email and Microsoft Teams.
Is there less tax to pay if I own property via a limited company?
This may be the case, but not always! We can guide you through this and help you decide on the most tax efficient structure.
Do I need to let HMRC know if I have rental income?
Yes, you need to tell HMRC if taxable profits from property that you rent. There are deadlines and failure to do so could have very serious consequences. This is something that we can help with as accountants for landlords.
I have received rental profits but not told HMRC can you help put things right?
Yes, as accountants for landlords we can help. We can guide you through making a full disclosure to HMRC, calculate any tax dude and advise on allowable expenses.
I have a property that I rent out as a holiday property are there different rules?
Yes, there are more favourable rules for furnished holiday lettings, but not all holiday letting will qualify. There are strict rules that need to be met. As accountants for landlords we can guide you through this maze.
