Rented Property held within a Limited Company

JaffacakeJaffacake Just JoinedRegistered Posts: 4
Wondering if anyone can help on this one, I've got a prospective client who has purchased a property to rent through a Limited Company. Would I be able to file the CT600 via the joint filing service, or would the Limited Company be classed as a property management company?

    Not sure about the joint filing service as I use software. However, there are lots of things to consider with a residential property (if it is residential) within a limited company. To save repeating what others have said have a look here http://www.accountingweb.co.uk/anyanswers/question/can-i-purchase-residential-property-my-ltd-company

    Hi Jaffacake
    What you seem to have is a property investment company, which should be fairly straight forward. My understanding of a property management company is a company set up to look after service charges of say a block of flats or residential estate, which is quite common for new(ish) builds. These are a little more complex as the FRC's views keep changing on how to report for them.
    Hope this helps.
