How Much Can You Earn From A Lodger Tax Free?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm asking this question for a friend, and it's something I would seriously consider in the future.

If you have a lodger, how much can you receive before paying tax? Also, it would be easier to charge a fixed amount for bills, would this fixed cost have to reflect the true additional cost of household bills? I.e. why not charge £250 rent plus £100 for bills?

It stood at £4,500 last year (£87 per week).

I assume it changed in April 2008 to about £90 per week.

"Rent A Room".

Totally tax free.

Yes, the charge for bills would have to reflect true useage, at no profit.
