Frequently asked questions

Do I have to declare rental income?
In most cases, you will have to declare your rental income to HMRC. You're exempt from this if you earn less than £1000 per year in rental income. If you are a landlord earning between £1000 and £2500, you need to contact HMRC. If you earn between £2500 and £9000 after allowable expenses, or £10,00 and above before allowable expenses, you must complete a self assessment tax return. Your income tax band will determine your tax rate each year.
What happens if I don't pay tax on rental income?
As a private landlord, you must pay income tax on any profit made from buy-to-let properties, so long as your income is higher than the basic rate threshold of £12,500. Tax avoidance can lead to very severe consequences. If you fail to submit your buy to let tax return, you can face a series of penalties including large fines.
