Five Essential Bookkeeping Tips for Buy-to-Let Landlords:
Monthly Book Updates
Many landlords tend to update their books only at the year-end, leading to a pile-up of bank statements and receipts. Regular monthly updates can prevent this backlog and make the accounting process smoother and more cost-effective.
Reconcile Your Books
Regularly cross-check your rental income and expenses against your bank account entries. This ensures accuracy in your self-assessment tax returns and ensures no financial details are missed.
Separate Business and Personal Accounts
A common mistake landlords make is using their personal bank account for their property portfolio. It’s advisable to have a dedicated account for rental income and expenses. Mixing the two can lead to complications, especially if HMRC requests to see your personal bank statements.
Track Your Expense Receipts
Misplacing or losing expense receipts can be a significant issue. Without these receipts, it’s challenging to claim tax relief on property-related expenditures. Utilize tools like Dext (formerly Receipt Bank) or similar apps to instantly record and send photos of your receipts to your accountant. This not only saves time but also ensures a more accurate financial overview of your property earnings.
Organise Your Files
Whether you’re using paper or electronic files, organisation is crucial for accurate tax reporting. Essential documents landlords should always have on hand include:
- A register for all capital expenses, useful for offsetting against capital gains during property sales
- Separate files for regular income and expenditure
- Regular business bank account statements
- All correspondence from HMRC
For landlords, whether renting out rooms in their homes or managing multiple properties, it’s essential to have organised tax affairs. This ensures you only pay the tax you owe, without any excess. For tailored tax support based on your unique circumstances, it’s always recommended to consult with a professional.
