What expenses can I claim against rental income?

Hello all.

Does anyone know what expenses I can claim against rental income for tax purposes? I spent quite a lot decorating and fixing stuff in my flat before renting it out, but my account says that I can only claim for expenses incurred once the rental had actually started. Does anyone have experience of this?

Thanks - any advice welcome.


Philly Yes… I am a builder I do all my repairs . You can only claim when A rental has started. But keep all receipts as they will count against capital gains tax if you sell. You cannot claim for your labour
