My client has several BTL properties, which is her only income.
Rather than paying letting agents to do rental collection/maintenance, she opts to do it all herself.
However, she feels that she is working and should be able to claim WTC. Property income is obviously investment income, and not 'work' for WTC.
The only scenario I think which fits this would be for her to create a property management company. She retains the properties personally, the company does all the work and bills her accordingly (in the same way that a letting agent would do). She works for the company and can claim WTC.
There is obviously the issue of sufficient working hours to qualify for WTC. Aside from that, would this work?
My own feeing is that it is contrived, not sure whether it's fraud!
