Here is what our experts are sharing this month:

  • Are your property expense claims above board?

    When the UK introduced self-assessment for tax purposes in 1996, the Inland Revenue (as they then were) – all credit to them – made an effort to simplify our byzantine system, and one of the beneficiaries of this was the property owner who lets out a rental property as an investment. 

    Alan Pink considers some of the commonest errors (in both directions) in landlords’ expense claims."

  • A welcome break: SDLT and first-time buyers

    Stamp duty land tax (SDLT) is payable on the purchase of land or property in England or Northern Ireland where the consideration is more than the relevant threshold.

    Sarah Bradford highlights the potential stamp duty land tax savings for those who are buying their first home.

  • Is it better to build a property portfolio in a limited company?

    The introduction of ‘Section 24’ - the restriction of interest and finance costs as a tax-deductible expense - has seen a huge change in the way that many landlords operate their rental activities. 

    Iain Rankin looks at why more and more landlords are operating via a limited company.

  • CGT annual exemption: Little by little?

    The capital gains tax (CGT) annual exemption is a welcome and useful tax break for many taxpayers.

    Mark McLaughlin looks at planning using the capital gains tax annual exemption.
