Landlord Accounting – Tax implications

If you are an individual and own property in the UK that you have rented out, you are liable to file self-assessment tax return of yourself. You have to register yourself for self-assessment at any time during or after the period in which you earn property income. The income tax for Landlord is same as for other self-employer or sole trader businesses i.e. 6th April to 5th April. This is the period for which you have to disclose your property income to HMRC through self-assessment return.


You have to submit an application for registering for HMRC taxes (self-assessment) and upon acceptance of the application HMRC will allocate you a unique tax reference (UTR) number. This number remains same throughout your life and will even be same if later you start self-employment. On the other hand if you are a self-employed already you have to tell HMRC about your property income through your self-assessment return, while you will use the same UTR number that you have been given for your self-employment.


You will be allowed to deduct related expenses from your income, and pay tax on the net income derived after deducting the expenses, if you are not working as self-employed you will not need to pay any national insurance contribution on your net income. Normal income tax rates and rules will apply to the income you earned during a tax year; please follow the link to tax rates.
