Online self assessment tax return deadline-help for landlords

The self-assessment tax return deadline is fast approaching, and landlords have until 31st January 2020 to file their self-assessment tax return online.

Here, we have put together some useful resources for landlords, including where to find help completing an online self assessment tax return, and we take a look ahead to upcoming tax changes.

Self-assessment tax returns

A self-assessment tax return must be sent if in the last tax year (6 April to 5 April), you were:

  • Self-employed as a ‘sole trader’ and earned more than £1,000
  • A partner in a business partnership
  • If you have any other untaxed income, such as money from renting out a property

The RLA Tax Centre, run in association with Rita4Rent has a wealth of advice for landlords on completing self-assessment tax returns.

This includes helpful videos such as the one below, and frequently asked questions from landlords.
