Hello, I read through government guidance, they said initial purchase furniture can't deduct rental income on self assessment tax return: "Broadly, it allows a deduction for the replacement (not initial purchase) of certain domestic items." https://www.gov.uk/guidance/income-tax-when-you-rent-out-a-property-working-out-your-rental-income#full-publication-update-history https://www.gov.uk/hmrc-internal-manuals/property-income-manual/pim3210 But the guidance didn't mentioned about "lease furniture", if I "lease furniture" for the rental property (even first time lease furniture), can I deduct lease cost against rental income? If it is not allowed, is it any government guidance for it? Thank you

Hi
Thank you for your question.
There is no specific guidance stipulating the leasing of furniture.
Please see PIM1900 and PIM2010.
If  the expense falls under this and there is no personal use, it would be allowable.
Regards.
