Accountants for Landlords & Property Owners

Accounting For Buy-To-Let Landlords and Property Owners

Affordable, Expert Property Accountants

As a private landlord or property investor, you’re operating in an increasingly complex sector. We understand that being a landlord can be very stressful! Legislative changes are coming thick and fast and complying with new regulations, including those relating to energy efficiency or safety requirements such as fitting carbon monoxide detectors in your properties, can be an unwanted but necessary headache.

Other challenges can soon mount up. Maybe you’re having to deal with problem tenants and paying to repair property damage, or late rent payments mean you’re having to pay a mortgage out of your own funds. This can all add up to place an increased demand on your time, not to mention increased cost.

Residential Buy-To-Let Landlords

As buy-to-let accountants, we often work with individuals who own between 10 to 15 residential properties, but this doesn’t mean we can’t help if your portfolio is smaller or bigger than this.

Our expert team of landlord accountants have vast experience managing accounts of all sizes, so let us know if you receive enough rental income to make a profit, as you will have to declare it to HMRC.

We’re also on hand to help if you’d like to buy property and develop it into rental accommodation – we’ll take care of all tax and accounting requirements and ensure that you’re submitting the correct documentation to the Government, as well as paying the right amount of tax. Of course, we’ll also ensure you stay compliant with legislation that affects you, such as Making Tax Digital and Capital Gains Tax.

How our landlord Accountancy Services can help you

There are many things to consider when you’re a landlord. Things can quickly become overwhelming even if you already have an existing portfolio.

The day-to-day running of your business can take up a lot of your time, so the last thing you want is to have to focus on managing your accounts as well. Not to mention how daunting it can be to ensure all your documentation and tax returns are correct when submitting to HMRC. The last thing you want is any penalties or fines.

This is where Gorilla Accounting comes in. As expert accountants for residential and commercial landlords, we offer unlimited support and advice every step of the way. For example, you’ll want to decide which of your properties is your main residence if you own more than one home, and you must also handle the sale of any property correctly, which means taking tax into account too.

If you’ve invested in property to rent it out, you must pay income tax, and Making Tax Digital will impact you as well. All of this and more needs to be carefully considered to ensure compliance.

Gorilla Accounting will provide you with the advice you need regarding property, whether you’re thinking of buying more, disposing of an existing property or expanding into another store. In addition, if you’re interested in forming a limited company or need accountants for tax returns, you can count on us to deliver the best advice and service.

Landlords & Buy-To-Let Package - What’s Included:

FreeAgent accounting software is included in your monthly fee – its functionality and comprehensive automation increases efficiency and makes accounting a breeze.

We’ll help you prepare and submit all your financial paperwork accurately and on time.

If you operate as a limited company, you must submit a corporation tax return, which we can help with – we also ensure that all information on the return is accurate.

If you require it, we can help with your VAT returns. You don’t have to register for VAT if your annual VAT taxable turnover is under £90,000, but you may register voluntarily if you wish.

As your business grows, you’re likely to hire staff to help. It can be challenging having to deal with payroll, but this is where Gorilla Accounting comes in. As part of your fee, we can help you prepare and submit payroll for up to 2 employees.

We can help with your P11d form which details expenses and benefits paid to company directors and staff who haven’t been subject to PAYE.

When starting out in the buy-to-let industry, a sole trader model is preferable because it allows landlords to figure out whether they want to continue down that path. Sole Traders must submit a self-assessment tax return to HMRC, which we can help you with. We’ll make sure all information is pertinent, correct and sent in a timely manner.

HMRC may check on how you keep your records. If they decide to do this, you will usually be contacted by letter. It’s important that you keep records accurately in order to submit your tax returns correctly and pay the right amount of tax and avoid any issues or penalties. If you’ve been contacted for a records check, we can help ensure that your paperwork is in order.

Limited companies must file confirmation statements at least once a year. Gorilla Accounting can assist by preparing the statements for you ensuring the information about your company is up-to-date.

Dealing with share issues, transfers and changes of particulars can be very time consuming, especially if you’ve never done it before. You can count on us to handle it for you.

As owner of your limited company, you’re entitled to draw dividends from your business. When companies distribute dividends, they need to produce board meeting minutes as well – if you’re unsure about what to do, we can help.

Because we understand that you’re busy and, sometimes, you need a quick answer to an urgent question, we guarantee a same day reply if you contact us before 3pm. This will help you to make business decisions faster as you won’t have to wait days to get the required information.

Each business is unique and has its own specific requirements. Therefore, we offer our clients their very own dedicated accountant. They will know everything there is to know about your financial circumstances and buy-to-let business and will always give you expert specialist advice.

As a Gorilla Accounting client, you can contact us anytime you want and at your convenience via telephone, email, video call or face-to-face meeting.
