Property Tax Dates

This feature is courtesy of RITA4RENT, the RLA's specialist landlord tax advisors.

We cannot stress enough the importance of filing your taxes on time. With landlords firmly in the sights of HMRC, the last thing any landlord wants is to miss a deadline and then be either penalised or targeted under the Let Property Campaign, or worse still, investigated.

In recent years, HMRC have become more aggressive in penalising those who file and/or pay their taxes late, and in light of this, we summarise below a selection of dates for your diary in 2021/22. This should ensure you are aware of the full position, and that no deadlines are missed!
