The most recent assessment on the impacts of raising the threshold for Rent a Room relief was carried out in 2015, when the threshold was increased from £4,250 up to its current level of £7,500 per year. The summary of impacts can be found here:

No further changes to the threshold have been assessed since then.

Ongoing cost estimates of the relief are published annually as part of the Non-Structural Tax Relief statistics release. The most recent release containing information on the Rent a Room scheme was published in December 2021, and can be found here:
