The New Cash Basis for Landlords
The new 'cash basis' is the default way many landlords are now taxed. In other words, if you are eligible for the cash basis, it will automatically apply ... unless you elect to opt out of it. The new edition takes a detailed look at all the tax issues: who qualifies, the advantages and disadvantages, how it might be used to combat the new restriction on interest relief (see below), plus details of the additional interest relief restriction applying under the cash basis.

Capital Gains Taxed as Income
Updated guidance on when property capital gains might be treated as trading profits and subject to income tax instead of capital gains tax: including a detailed analysis of HMRC’s guidance on the subject.

Stamp Duty Land Tax
Full details of the new higher stamp duty land tax charges applying to buy-to-let landlords with worked examples. Plus how to avoid higher stamp duty charges by buying property in Scotland and in England, Wales or Northern Ireland in the right order.

Tax Relief on Interest
The cut in tax relief on mortgage interest has now come into effect and is arguably the biggest ever tax change affecting property investors. The new edition contains fully updated guidance and tells you everything you need to know, including:

  • How and when the restrictions apply
  • Who is affected - and who isn't
  • What types of expense are caught
  • The surprising benefits for some landlords with little or no other income
  • The impact on partnerships, companies and other entities
  • Guidance on claiming interest relief after a property has been sold
  • Numerous worked examples showing the practical effects of the change

Making Tax Digital
The latest position on ‘Making Tax Digital’ and how it is likely to affect landlords and other property business owners. Under Making Tax Digital most landlords will be required to keep their accounting records digitally and make quarterly reports of their results.

Other New Information
The latest edition also contains new information on:

  • Pitfalls when buying a new home in joint names, and how to avoid them
  • How new rules affect those developing their own home
  • What happens if you use an investment property in a development business
  • Updated and enhanced guidance on capital allowances for property businesses
