Treasury written question – answered on 25th February 2019.
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, what estimate he has made of the (a) number and (b) proportion of landlords in each local authority area who are registered for self-assessment with HM Revenue and Customs.
The table attached presents the number of individuals who declared income from property on their Self-Assessment tax returns for the 2016-17 tax year, the latest year for which data is available, excluding those who declared income from furnished holiday lettings.
Note that (i) these figures are based on tax return data, and not Self-Assessment registrations; and (ii) the locations given in the Table relate to the residences of the individuals with property income, and not the locations of properties from which they declared income.
HMRC do not hold information about the total number of landlords and so it is not possible to provide a proportion of the numbers in Self-Assessment against that total.
