Form 17 to split income?

Form 17 to split income?

I have two properties in my sole name and I am a 40% tax payer. However, my wife has no income at all.

I am looking to enter her on the deed by transferring her 50% of the equity on these properties.

She will be hit with a tax bill of £3750 on £125,000, but we are ok with this.

Can I then use Form 17 to split the income 90/10 in her favor ?

Many thanks in advance.

Ridvan

My understanding is that once you have setup tenancy in common, nothing else is needed to be done. The benefits of the property in question has already been portion as per tenancy in common documentation.

Hi Mark,

Could we use this form on the HRMC website even if the property was only in one sole name? It does say hold property jointly to start of with.

My understanding is Ridvan now owns those property solely with a mortgage but would like to transfer the beneficial interest to the wife who owns 0% of the property at the moment.

No, Form 17 is only for jointly owned properties. I was responding specifically to Ridvan's question.

If you require bespoke advice please book a consultation via our main tax page linked below.

I'd like to add to the question...
We have done the declaration of trust and submitted Form 17, there was about 4 weeks between the declaration and form 17 being signed. From which date are we supposed to change the income from a 50/50 split to a 1/99 split? I assume it is valid from the date HMRC have accepted Form 17?
Thanks in advance for any info

It is valid from the date of the Declaration of Trust being signed and witnessed
