Specialist Property & Landlord Accounting
Whether it’s your first property, a property you plan to rent or you are a property business with a growing portfolio, ensuring your finances and accounting is up to scratch is vital.
Property is a complex subject, and ensuring you are equipped with the knowledge to navigate your transactions will keep you ahead of the competition and leave you in the best position possible.
Our accountants at Cutts & Co know property. We have experience with landlords, property management, property portfolios and clients looking to buy privately, and have a comprehensive understanding of how best to manage transactions and get the most from your tax obligations.
A Landlord, defined as someone who leases or licences their property for periods shorter than seven years, is subject to certain tax obligations related to their rental income. If your rental income surpasses your combined expenses, deductions, and tax benefits, you must fulfil your tax liability by submitting a tax return. In situations where your rental property incurs a financial loss, it’s advisable to proactively report this loss. Doing so enables you to carry forward the loss for potential future offsets against profitable property income.
If you’ve recently sold or transferred a holiday home or second property and are facing Capital Gains Tax, our experts can assist you. We’ll ensure you complete the necessary tax return accurately.
Our team specialises in identifying tax planning opportunities to minimise your Capital Gains Tax liability. We can also calculate your tax liability and handle your tax return on your behalf.
