Are you a landlord looking to save on taxes or ways to overcome your accounting woes? Keep reading for accounting tips from our property accountants:
Note all the possible incurred expenses this year.
List all deductible expenses to minimise taxes on rental income. These expenses include council tax, ground rent, service charges, mortgage payment interest, letting agents’ fees, maintenance, repairs, and accountant fees. If you’re too busy for this, our accountants for landlords can take care of everything.
Know about the basic rate tax band.
Are you and your partner Joint Tenants of your property? If there is an income gap, greater rental income can be allocated to one with a lower income to avoid the higher rate tax band.
Consider owning properties by incorporation.
The 2015 summer budget brought significant changes to the rental income’s tax structure from buy to let properties. Our accountants for landlords suggest owning properties via incorporation to maximise returns on buy-to-let investments. In addition, we can recommend tax-efficient ways to own property, such as joint ownership as tenants, individual ownership, LLP, limited company, or using a SIPP.
Our accountants can help you claim the Landlord’s Energy Saving Allowance. It’s a claim against the money spent on energy efficiency efforts, like cavity wall or loft insulation, draught-proofing, and tank and pipe lagging.
