How many of you who have rented out your own car park space knew the consequences?
Did you know that renting out your own car space and receiving income from that source is deemed as taxable income, even if that means that by doing so you have to rent a space yourself.
Renting out your own car park space on your own driveway means you are responsible for declaring that income on your own personal self assessment tax return when you file it to H M Revenue and Customs. The entries should be made on the Land & Property pages
Remember to consider that should you enter into this type of arrangement make sure you prepare a contract and include a break clause in case the situation changes.
Starting a business new business venture is all well and good and has possibilities to provide you with a great living. However, all too many people start a business without doing their homework and believe that just because they love the idea have done no homework in making sure that there is a market for what they wish to offer.
Research is one of the fundamental considerations in any business if it is going to be fruitful, otherwise why bother it may as well remain a hobby.
Some people start their business from a passion with a hobby, but it is slow. The value in the slowness is insight into their customers and understanding what their customers want, smelling peak times and lean times.
Being able to smell a trend is also important as to what may be coming up for the line of business you are in. It helps you stay ahead of the curve.
If no one is prepared to pay you for what you are offering does this sound like a viable business or is the expectation of what you are offering perceived as if it should be free?

When you decide to rent out a property you have a responsibility to yourself and the tenant to have in place a tenancy agreement which sets out you the “land lord” and the tennant, stating the terms of the agreement.
When you declare your rental income on your personal self assessment tax return you are required by the rules of H M Revenue & Customs to declare the rent received as per the agreement and not just the rent received in the tax year. For further insight and information on this you are welcome to contact me.
