Ask Atkins: Landlords! HMRC are closing in on your undeclared Rental Income!

Ask atkins

 

Do i need to

 

The Revenue is on the trail of £550m missing tax and is urging landlords to come clean or risk higher penalties.
Don’t get caught out by the following common rental income misconceptions:Rental blog ad

  • I’m in the armed forces, so we don’t need to declare our rental profits…
    Wrong – you do still need to declare them.
  • I don’t need to declare my rental profits as I only rent my house out because I’m drafted overseas…
    Wrong – you still need to declare them.
  • I don’t make a profit, so I don’t need to tell HMRC…
    But are you making a profit in the eyes of the tax man!  If you have a repayment mortgage then it is quite likely you are actually making a profit. And if you are genuinely making a loss then it is in your advantage to report this to HMRC.
  • My Wife / Partner doesn’t need to declare it because I have…
    Wrong – if a property is jointly owned you each need to declare your share of the income.

HMRC are running a Let Property Campaign to encourage landlords to come clean and tell them about their rental property before they track you down.
HMRC can contact letting agents for a list of landlords, scrutinise ‘property to rent’ websites/ newspapers and they already hold information on those who receive tenants housing benefit directly and those who have used the Deposit Protection Schemes, so if you are a landlord then act now.
It will be in your best interest to volunteer the information than if you try to ignore it and HMRC catch up with you!
