Income excluded from property business

POSTED BY: Luke Rudman

01 April 19

A property income allowance worth £1,000 a year came into effect on 6 April 2017. This allowance applies to income from property (including foreign property). If your annual gross property income is £1,000 or less, the amount is exempt from tax and doesn’t need to be reported on your tax return. In practice, the use of this allowance is limited, but could work, for example, if you rented your parking space for a small amount of extra income.

HMRC also publishes a list of income streams that are excluded from a UK property business. The list includes fishing concerns, hotels and guest houses, tied premises, caravan sites, lodgers and tenants in your own home, extra services to tenants and letting surplus trade accommodation. In most cases the income from these activities will be taxed as income of a trade and not as property income.

There are also certain receipts which can arise out of the use of land and which are specifically excluded by statute from a rental business. These include yearly interest, income from the occupation of woodlands managed on a commercial basis, income from mines and quarries and income from farming and market gardening.
