can i claim this

I was a self employed person with a ten year leased property. I retired and passed on my business to my son who incorporated. The business premises were leased and I had a personal gaurantee thereon. The Ltd Co ceased by insolvency and i was forced to pay the rent arrears of £10k. can i ofset this payment against my pension income.

Any help would be very grateful

At what point

in year terms did you cease trading and the liability came back to bite you?

might be worth looking if the liability could be off-set against earlier years.

But if you have only a pension income, you would not be able to offset the lease against it.

Has the property been re-leased? if yes, then your liability will cease during the period of occupation. your liability will also cease if the new tenant has signed a new lease and not just taken over the element that you originally signed for.
