There should've been an 'each' after the £120 as Mrs Hamish has hers done too.

Does 2 tax returns 2x£120 + vat make it similar?... Read More

Proof of declining Accommodation levels, but no links made!

Perhaps start posting links to these snippets on MP's facebook and twitter accounts asking politely for comment?

Once a day should do it.

In fact, when I have a spare moment I will look at writing a program to do it automatically (and the legality because the idea is a bit 'spammy') and leave it running on my server.

Links could then be sent to all MP's, Lords, Leaders of Local Authorities, Housing Groups, Editors etc. There would be no bias then.

Someone will bite eventually and then I can post links to that too.

You are not allowed a negative profit.

You can only go as low as a zero profit.

You are permitted to carry forward the loss which one would hope is eroded by subsequent years' profit until it is used up.

So presumably you have to put in a figure that exactly cancels the profit to make the balance zero then keep a record of the remaining loss you have left to carry forward to the next year.

I used to do ours but hated every minute so for about £120 a year we have an accountant do this for us now. I just keep the records.

Shadow Housing Minister wants 3 week deposit maximum

A deposit is against dilapidations, unpaid rent ...

broken windows, a damaged wardrobe ( not repairable), a ruined carpet and the last months rent (or more) withheld, cost of cleaning, general repairs (not wear and tear), clearing out rubbish that was left behind using a skip, county court fees ...

and no forwarding address ...

makes any reasonable deposit insignificant.

Ah, yes and then we add the void time to fix everything and live, post tenant, in a twilight possession world because they haven't sat down with me enabling a proper and legal end to the tenancy.

I have no major problem with a smaller deposit limit.

I do have a major problem with the total lack of balance.
