Rental properties can come with all sorts of unwanted stress, especially when it comes to the numbers! If you’re searching for accountants for rental properties, look no further than HUSA Accountants.
Do I Need an Accountant for my Rental Property?
A rental property is anything under a lease agreement. If you have a landlord, your property is rented. As a landlord, you may own a series of properties that you rent out, you may have furnished holiday homes that you rent throughout the year, or you may rent out a room in your home. All these options mean you have certain obligations to fulfil and legal requirements to adhere to. So YES, an accountant will massively benefit you. Getting your numbers correct is a big stress over landlord’s heads, in fact – it’s the most common hurdle that landlords often need help with. Having experience with accountant software, alongside a mass of knowledge in managing accounts for rental properties, HUSA will confidently get the job done for you.
When you become a landlord and begin renting out properties, you have several obligations including:
- Keeping properties safe and free from health hazards
- Gas and electrical equipment are safely installed and maintained
- Provide an Energy Performance Certificate
- Protect the tenants deposit – Government Approved Scheme
- Check the tenants right to rent property in England
- Ensure your tenant has a copy of the ‘how to rent’ checklist
Alongside all these obligations, is the obligation to correctly declare your main residence for yourself, register for a self-assessment, file a tax return each year and keep your accounts in check.
Why Do You Need an Accountant?
These requirements are why having an accountant for your rental property on hand will be a big benefit to you and your rental property business.
Any income that you earn from your rental properties that exceeds your total allowances, reliefs and expenses is taxable. This taxable income has to be filed via tax return. Accountants can help with this.
Calculating your taxable income can be confusing if you are not sure what it includes. Having accountants who can do this for you will lessen your burden and ensure you are compliant with all legal obligations.
