Let Property Campaign.

The taxman has launched another ‘confess your tax sins’ campaign aimed at individuals who have failed to declare rental income they have received from residential properties.

This let property campaign (LPC) can’t be used by companies that let property or by landlords who let commercial rather than residential properties.

Like other tax disclosure campaigns the taxman promises that you will pay a lower amount of penalties if you disclose under the LPC, but the tax due and interest on late paid tax will have to be paid in full.

If you want to use the LPC to declare income and gains from your let properties, you need to complete a notification form on the HMRC website, or phone the property campaign helpline on 03000 514 479. We can help you with this.

There is no set deadline for asking to use the LPC, but the Taxman is running a taskforce in parallel to the LPC which is targeting tax evasion by residential landlords. So it’s a case of “confess before we catch you.”

Once you have notified HMRC that you want to use the LPC, you will be given a reference number and be told to make a full disclosure of the previously un-declared income and gains with three months. You will also need to pay all the tax due within the same three month period. If you can’t pay all the tax in that time period you must ask HMRC for a “time to pay” arrangement before the deadline arrives. We can help you with this as well.
