Landlords get online tax training


Landlords are being offered online training in tax matters from HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC). The computer-based tutorials will make it easier for them to understand when and how to pay tax on property they have let out.

The training pack is part of HMRC’s Let Property campaign, aimed at people renting out residential property who have not registered to pay tax, who have under-declared their earnings or who have under-paid tax.

Laura Pollard, head of HMRC Campaigns, said: “This package has been developed to help landlords get their tax affairs right from day one. They can also use it to keep them on track in the future.”

The Association of Residential Letting Agents, the National Landlord Association and the Residential Landlord Association will also make the training available to their members. HMRC is also in discussion with other landlord associations to make the training available to them.

Details of the Let Property campaign and the tutorials themselves are both available online.
