The threshold for tax-free allowance for trading and miscellaneous income currently stands at £1,000; the same is the threshold for tax-free allowance on income from the property. Tax planning for landlords is one of our many specialisations.

In case you rent a part of your main or only home, then the threshold of tax-free income from letting stands at up to £7,500. 

Year-End Tax Planning & Capital gains

The CGT allowance for the majority of the taxpayers in the tax year 2020-21 is £12,300. It means that if your capital gains on any investment stand at £12,300, you will pay no tax on them. 

You can utilise this CGT allowance by selling and then re-purchasing these shares. But for this purpose, the repurchase should either be made by your civil partner, spouse, or it has to be delayed for a period exceeding 30 days. 

You can also sell your loss-making assets to slash capital gains in the tax year they apply to or you can carry forward your loss-making assets to set them against any future capital gains.
