Renting Your Property:
Tax returns for landlords

Meet Karina

Karina is one of our in-house client accountants, and she helped us select an external firm of accountants to provide Self Assessment tax returns for our landlords.

“We liaise with our carefully selected firm of accountants to provide the accounting details that they need when preparing your tax return, taking nearly all of the admin out of the process for our landlords. With our help, they make sure you get the most favourable treatment for any expenses that you have incurred during the year and maximise the use of legitimate tax allowances. ”

All landlords earning rental income of £2,500 need to complete a self assessment tax return. And we are very pleased to be able to offer this service as part of our Concierge package.

At the end of the year, Karina and her colleagues will prepare a statement of rental income and expenses. With your consent, we’ll send it across to our nominated firm of external accountants so they can combine it with your other income (usually your salary taken from your P60 form), to make sure you pay the right amount of tax and get your submissions in on time.

It’s a little known fact that landlords are allowed to offset a wide range of expenses against their income tax bill including: lettings agent fees, insurance, interest on mortgages, maintenance and repairs, utility bills, council tax and cleaning. For furnished properties landlords can also claim 10% of the net rent as a “wear and tear allowance” for furniture and equipment that is provided in the property.

So if you suspect you might not be making the most of your exemptions and allowances when filing in your tax return, then give us a call on 0207 099 4000 and we’ll run through how we can help.
