Atkinson McLeod - February Newsletter

In these straitened times, HMRC appear to be stepping up efforts to catch those avoiding tax, which is no bad thing. However, are innocent Landlords being unnecessarily targeted? Our first article takes a look at a ‘concerned’ viewpoint, from an accountant.

Compulsory Landlord Licensing was recently introduced in Newham and is being considered by other local authorities. In our second article we look at the example in Scotland, which appears to have been very costly with very little net benefit.

Finally we take a look at a research by the property portal Rightmove. Accidental landlords, a product of the credit crunch, are looking far from amateurish and are keen for more of the action.

As ever, if you’ve got any questions or feedback, please call us or drop us a line. Alternatively, just drop into your local branch of Atkinson McLeod.

Best regards,
