  • RE: Self Assessment - Property repairs and maintenance section

    Hi HMRC Admin 2. According to the link posted by HMRC Admin 10, carpeting goes in box 36 also per below, not box 27. Please can you clarify? Thanks http://www.gov.uk/guidance/income-tax-when-you-rent-out-a-property-working-out-your-rental-income?_gl=1*dhy720*_ga*NzE2NTg5OTI0LjE2NDEyOTE2ODE.*_ga_Y4LWMWY6WS*MTY0MTI5MTY4MS4xLjEuMTY0MTMwODEzNy4w&_ga=2.7729457.2010957905.1641291681-716589924.1641291681#dom-items Allowances for replacement of domestic items If you let out residential property (a dwelling house) you may be able to claim a deduction for the cost of replacing domestic items such as: movable furniture for example beds, free-standing wardrobes furnishings for example curtains, linens, carpets, floor coverings household appliances for example televisions, fridges, freezers kitchenware for example crockery, cutlery

  • Refund for overpaid tax on account

    Hi, I have just submitted my 2020-21 tax return, and the amount due is a lot less than previous years due to replacement flooring etc when my previous long-term tenants moved out. My payment on account from last year is considerably more than the amount due for 2020-21. I can't yet "request a refund" from my online account. Does anyone know when this will be available for me to request, and how long it will take to come through? Thanks
  • Major maintenance works on rental property

    Hi, I am due to pay for major maintenance works on my rental property in Q4 2021-22. All leaseholders need to pay their proportion, for roof repairs, water mains works, electrical repairs, wall repairs, etc. Do I include this cost in the property repairs and maintenance section? Thanks!
