Air BnB agree data share with HMRC


Recommended Posts

He will not be affected by any UK rules, but I like to think this is the expression that every UK AirBnB landlord will give upon hearing this news (and I really, really, enjoy this lady's angry face).

Only thing worse than a property hoarder is a tax dodging property hoarder.

Evasion, plus interest, plus penalties. That'll pay for the eat out to help out. 

Hahahahahahahahahahahaha

Most casual Air BnB renters will be under the £7,500 rent a room allowance.

This will however be a big issue for those who do it commercially.

 

Assuming HMRC actually act on the data. They have had land registry data for .. years and years.. and still dont pick up vast majority of landlords who are not declaring. Bob owns 5 houses, Bob doesnt complete a tax return... hmmm. its not rocket science guys.

I think they might have an incentive now.  A £300bn+ one...

None whatsoever.  

100% s24 (removal of tax incentives for BTL) impact as of April, correct?  

🍿

S24 only dips you down to tax relief as a lower earner so 20% flat rate etc. not 40/45%.

Unless in a corporate shell then full relief deductible as an expense from profit. 

 

S24B could remove the remaining relief or apply to companies but not seen anything muted yet.

True, but its still going to be noticeable to some.  Especially higher rate earners.

Oh fully agree.

Just need to be careful not to overstate its impact - looks over at the "countdown to the end of leverage BTL" thread going since 2017 or whenever.

 

BTL can be / still is, profitable for many despite the recent tax changes. less so for some but to suggest its game over is removed from reality.

So I read this and I thought what took so long and why would anyone care, we all pay our tax anyway.....of course the reality is there will be a percentage of people with multiple properties, all of which have an electronic trail of payments and little or no tax paid.  An as for the room to rent allowance, again I will say, it does not apply to a second or third home you dont live in.  it would be nice to think people would be held to account and have to pay their fair share.  I have the same feelings on ebay, its used by people to sell stuff without paying due VAT and tax and it should be stopped.  Both undermine legit business and rob us of tax which we then have to pay on their behalf.

Coming back to the Air BnB issue, I wonder how much BTL would still remain profitable with s24 + declaring income beyond the £7500 "room to rent" allowance?

Yes. And if this is a second home then one would suggest the £7.5k wouldn't be enough anyway.

Although a "legit loophole" is a couple both owning property. Each as their primary residence, both get the £7.5k for renting out the other property while staying with the other half.

Seems "far fetched" but consider how many people move in with a partner but keep their own flat etc etc. Far from unheard of to split the time between both properties and Air B and B the other.

You have to delve into how much leverage is there.

If none, S24 makes no difference so thats a whole chunk still profitable.

If you bought pre 2000 tiny mortgage, interest rates are 2-3% even for BTL.. tax allowance, who cares frankly.

Commercial large scale landlords will all have a company structure.. so again no change for them.

 

So you are left asking - whats the % of the market that is in personal name i.e small scale and highly leveraged. Then whats the margin on that sub section and if S24 pushes them into a loss. Would suggest not a huge chunk.

As for this Air B an B stuff.. hopefully it ends the ruse of someone renting a large property say 5 bed on an AST, then Air B and B ing it or renting the rooms out separately.

With all due, your attempting to paint this as "little effect, move along here" once again.  But does anyone actually have facts to prove this or otherwise in the UK?  I guess not....

Not really. Think who the law actually impacts - those with personal BTL assets, not held in a corporate shell, with large mortgages and higher rate taxpayers.

Everyone else there is no/very little impact.

You need to work out what % of the market fits all the criteria at the centre of the venn diagram to get the impact. 

 

If you read on here its game over for everyone who must sell up yesterday. Would suggest reality is somewhat different as seen by the sales or lack of over the last 3 years as this has been implemented. BTL was 20% of housing stock in 2017 when the phasing in started, BTL is still 20% of the housing stock today.

 

Personally i would like to see all tax relief withdrawn. its bonkers it exists. But there you go
