Income excluded from property business

Source: HM Revenue & Customs | | 03/12/2019

HMRC publishes a list of income streams that are excluded from a UK property businesses' taxable income. The list includes fishing concerns, hotels and guest houses, tied premises, caravan sites, lodgers and tenants in your own home, extra services to tenants and letting surplus trade accommodation. In most cases the income from these activities will be taxed as income of a trade and not as property income.

There are also certain receipts which can arise out of the use of land and which are specifically excluded by statute from a rental business. These include yearly interest, income from the occupation of woodlands managed on a commercial basis, income from mines and quarries and income from farming and market gardening.

There is also a £1,000 property income allowance that applies to income from property (including foreign property). If a taxpayer’s annual gross property income is £1,000 or less then the amount is exempt from tax and does not need to be reported on their tax return.
