How furnished is furnished?


Recommended Posts

Newbie question so please be gentle......

Just about to rent out my first BTL property.

I see that there are tax deductions available for furnished properties rather than unfurnished. So my question then is 'How furnished is furnished?'

If I supply one bed only is that furnished? If I put a table and chairs in the property is that furnished? At what point does a house move from unfurnished to part-furnished to furnished for tax purposes?

Hi Mark

You need to put in the basics, for example, white goods, lounge and bedroom funiture, curtains etc.

There is no set scale from unfurnished to furnished. part-furnished is not enough to warrant a wear and tear allowance.

hope that helps

We are a national inventory company (http://www.inventoryclerk.com) and we tend to class a property as unfurnished up to including "white goods".

A sofa, bed and maybe a wardrobe or 2 with curtains and minor odds and ends is part-furnished and anything beyond as furnished.

We have a last category which is where a property is over furnished we may add extra fees.

I hope this helps
