Have issues and I was wondering if anyone can tel me whether i'm correct or making myself out for a fool rolleyes.gif


Landlady emigrated to Oz, few weeks before she rented to me, I get LHA, her brother is dealing with the rental as far as general communication, but I am to pay the rent to her bank account, so he is not an 'agent'. So far they have recieved 1 months rent, in full, no deductions whatsoever.


I spoke to him regarding information I had discovered regarding the NRL tax and he basicaly started throwing a complete hissy fit, as far as he is concerned, there is no discussion, I am 100% wrong and he is 100% right due to his knowledge from his job.


I sent the following email to him today, can anyone give me ideas of which party is giving me the correct info, I am NOT trying to be awkward, but I am trying to PROTECT myself.




Dear ***,


Further to your call today when you told me that I am to pay the rent in full, including the tax, direct to Mrs ***, I spoke to the 'Centre for Non-Residents' within the Inland Revenue(CNR).


They have confirmed that I am indeed correct in my understanding of the 'Non-Resident Landlords Scheme.


They have advised that as I have not recieved notification that the Non-Resident Landlord has been aprproved to recieve the rental income with no tax deducted.


They additionaly checked whether Mrs *** has registered with the scheme, which she was required to do before leaving the UK and found no record of registration.


They confirmed that as Mrs *** is due to be a Non-resident for over six months and rental income is due to be paid directly into a UK bank account, by myself, that she falls within the NRL scheme.


They have taken my details and registered my information as I am liable for the tax on the rental income(currently 20%). I will need to complete assesments on 30th June, 30th September, 31st December and 31st of March each year.


CNR have also confirmed that I must deduct from the next payment to Mrs ***, the 20% from the previously paid Rental Payment (confirmation of this can be found on page 11 at http://landlordstax.co.uk/pdf/lts_ir_140.pdf)


CNR have also informed me that I need to issue with a NRLY by the 5th of July each year, to include information up till 31st of March.


You assure me that you are 100% sure that I have the above information wrong in my telephone call to you just now and that if I withold tax, to pay as I have been informed by the CNR, that I will be doing so wrongly and therefore commiting benefit fraud.


Please inform me how the above information is incorrect as I am more than happy to not be found liable for the tax and having to work within the NRL scheme. However, at this stage I am having to follow the advice from the CNR that if Mrs *** is not signed up to the scheme, it's a legal requirement for the tenant or agent to deduct the tax from the rent and send it to the Revenue.


Kind Regards

Miss ***
