    Let Property Campaign Disclosure

    Due to my total naivety and inexperience I've not declared my rental income on my property since I've been renting it out from March 2013.

    The numbers I'm talking about aren't very big (numbers are after allowable expenses, mortgage interest, repairs, letting agents fees etc)

    2012/13 £406 loss

    2013/14 £119

    2014/15 £18 loss

    2015/16 £529

    2016/17 £823

    Making a net taxable profit of £1047 taking the previous years losses into account?

    I'm a basic rate taxpayer with a salary of 32k.

    I've been trying to fill out the digital disclosure form tonight but I'm totally stuck at the first hurdle. The form asks you to enter the penalty you should pay and interest? Doesn't the HMRC decide that? I've got detailed spreadsheets for retal income/profit/loss but I've got no idea how to proceed with it. Anyone have any ideas? The calculator they provide doesn't make much sense to me either. When I input each years figures in it comes back with no tax owed, which can't be right, but when I put the figure of £1047 into one year's calculations it comes back that I owe over £1700 - again that can't be right as 20% of the £1047 figure is £209?

    I thought it would be a simple case of entering the figures I've got and HMRC would take it from there but they don't make it easy for newbies like me. I desperately want to get this in order, I can't afford an accountant at the moment, I simply don't have the money, despite it being an allowable expense.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated my head is ready to explode!

    Generally the minimum penalty they will accept is 10% in these cases.

    For interest you should be able to calculate here https://www.hmrc.gov.uk/gds/campaigns/19years-calc-stub.htm

    I just can't get the calculator to come up with figures that look remotely correct, that's my problem. When you type in your salary and tax deducted from your salary is that just income tax you put in or do you include national insurance too?

    Basically I've got £1047 of undeclared profits, so surely my 20% figure of 209 is correct? It keeps coming back with either zero or that I owe more than the total profit?

    When I type in just the income tax on 32k, which is £4100, then the yearly rental income of £6600, it comes back that I owe £1706? That's £700 more than my total profit?

    the rental income to be entered is the profit not the gross rent.

    If you can make an appointment with HMRC and lay out your problem

    I found them helpful indeed years ago but a lot of local offices have closed down

    as for an accountants fee its tax deductible so If you used one it may pay for itself

    I had a friend in similar situation and they charged him 60% penalty on his tax bill  so if you owe a £1000 they could charge you £1600

    that's why I would pay for advice it could wipe out your tax liability
