New Tax Rules For Thanet Buy-To-Let Landlords From 2026
16/03/2023 2384

From April 2026, all self-employed landlords or any landlord with an income of more than £50,000 will need to keep digital records and send HMRC via approved software quarterly updates on their income and expenditure.

Those landlords with a rental income of between £30,000 and £50,000 will need to do this from April 2027.

This means there will be four extra filings a year, with a fifth filing required to collate all the information.

The new regulations will also introduce a penalty point system to encourage compliance with submission dates.

The points system will replace the current fine structure, with an automatic £200 penalty applied once a certain number of points have been reached.

Exemptions are available for those who cannot cope with digital tax returns for genuine reasons. Landlords wishing to seek an exemption must apply through the HMRC website, and each case will be considered individually.
