When looking for a comparison of typical Private Rental Costs v Income I struggled. The Tax return asks for number of properties [SA105 box 1], Income from rent & property [box 20],
They ask for Expenses-
rent, rates, insurance, ground rent 
repairs & maintenance 
allowable finance costs 
legal, management, professional 
Less private use adjustment 
Taxable profit 
The profit margin (for our own interest) requires an estimate of the portfolio value.
Has anyone seen this information published?
20/21 will not be typical for many due to the pandemic. Having done this for the last two years I got:-
Box no. 19/20 20/21
24. 6% 8.5% (insurance etc)
25. 7% 12.5% (maintenance)
27. 4% 4.8% (professional)
30. – 3% – 4.1% (private use)
40 86% 78.3% (taxable profit)
ROCE 5.25% 3.9% (before finance cost)
Net profit 2.25%. 0.9%. after finance cost.
Then of course there’s tax on the profit , and loss of certain benefits as income increases ……..
One thing is certain, there’s easier ways to earn a crust!
