A rental property is owned jointly by father and son. Father is a lower tax payer and son is a higher tax payer. Can the father declare all of the rental income on his Self Assessment.
I have been completing Self Assessment Returns for a number of years. I do receive income from rented out UK property. For the first time this year, when completing Page 1 of Taylor Your Return and answering 'Yes' to the question 'Did you receive income from UK property over £1,000, the form then informs me that 'HMRC routinely receives information from other countries about foreign income, assets and gains. Our records indicate you may need to complete the foreign section'. For the next question - 'If you received any foreign income, do you need to complete the foreign section?' the form automatically defaults to 'Yes'. If I try to change this to 'No' as I do not have any foreign income, I receive a red warning message asking me to check my answer and amend.
I have never received any foreign income and have no idea what this refers to. My only thought is that I did receive a refund from Expedia for a holiday which had been cancelled because of Covid, as Expedia is a foreign company. Surely it doesn't refer to this? Any help would be appreciated.
