Understanding The Tax Report
According to the tax years and accounting basis selected, your tax report and tax returns will be presented below.
In the report, all your total expenses (Rent, Insurance, Maintenance, Legal Fees and Loans) will be deducted from the total income to calculate whether you have maintained a profit or a loss before tax is applied.
Note: In keeping with Section 24, a note will be presented stating this year's finance expenses, including interest, will only attract 20% tax relief, to portray how it is split and prepared for you to account for your tax returns
It's important to note that these tax return calculations are entirely dependant upon the data entered and it's accuracy. It's critical that you check the results yourself (use the per-item quick expansions to see the data behind each total). If at all unsure we always recommend that you seek professional advice.
