How to disclose your income
Read the guidance on making a disclosure and disclose your income to HMRC. You’ll need a Government Gateway account.
You can use a calculator to help you work out what you owe. There’s a different calculator if you need to tell us about more than 7 years of unpaid tax.
If you need more time to pay, you must call the helpline before your 90-day deadline.
If you should disclose but choose not to
HMRC is targeting tax evasion by residential landlords. They’ll use information they have about property rental in the UK and abroad and other information they hold on customers to identify people who might not have paid what they owe.
If you don’t make a voluntary disclosure now and HMRC finds out later, you could get higher penalties or face criminal prosecution.
Help and advice
Call the Let Property Campaign helpline if you need advice.
You can become a landlord for many different reasons; you might not even think of yourself as one. This could be because you’ve:
- inherited a property
- just rented out a flat to cover your mortgage payments
- moved in with someone and need to rent out your house
Read some examples of tax errors landlords make to see if you’ve misunderstood the rules.
Whether your errors were due to misunderstanding the rules, or you deliberately avoided paying the right amount, you should notify HMRC now rather than wait until they uncover the errors.
