Back to basics I think. You need to know the beneficial interest in each of the properties first. I wouldn't rely upon another accountant to do the calculations unless it's a simple 50/50 arrangement (usually family members) where your client is happy with the figures. This is clearly not the case.
You'll need to find out your client's entitlement to the gross rents (one fifth by the sound of it) and assess what his allowable deductions actually are - not some unexplained figure prepared by an accountant who's too busy to talk to you. If it's a 16/17 matter I'd submit an estimated return with a white box note.
Yes, very annoying and an absolute nightmare. If you can't handle the heat, get out of the kitchen. The scary thing is that I genuinely believe you're preparing accounts for people.
Congratulations on your first sensible question.
Mark - were your earnings £11,500 or £17,000? Never mind don't answer. You appear to be an unlucky chap what with your bank unreasonably chasing you for repayment of an overdraft in 2009.
Googled "Class 11 Nice" but couldn't find anything. You can't increase something that doesn't exist. Are you Jeremy Corbyn in disguise?
Just done one of these and as you say the £11,100 should be set off in the most beneficial way i.e. the higher rate of gain. My software also offset some net excess of allowances over other income against that gain - effectively the lower band. So the maximum possible figure picked up the 10%. You might need to publish the rest of the taxpayer's income to get a more detailed answer.
Shouldn't there be 4 asterisks?
Nothing to do with ethics. He/she sought a second opinion, just that. I recently advised a client/friend to seek a second opinion on a very complicated CGT case. It's down to you whether you feel you want to work with him/her. Make sure you get paid.
Hope you have more luck than when I cancelled my whole membership in 2004. They wouldn't let me resign until I'd assured them that I wasn't under investigation by any of 3 directorates two of which I'd never heard of. I don't want to tempt fate but you may find you have to provide certain information before they deign to accept your cancellation. I suppose they have to justify their inflation-busting subscription increases.
