How to add property co-owner details to your tax return

We've updated this guide on 2nd August 2019

Why do I need to add a co-owner to my tax return?

If you and your partner own a rental property together, each of you will have to complete a tax return.

Same goes if you are selling a property that you own together.

As a result, TaxScouts allows you to specify that your property is jointly owned and enables you to include the co-owner’s details.

This ensures that both you and your partner get the same accountant, who is already familiar with your shared property, expenses, and has already completed the relevant tax calculations.

Step 1

Log into your TaxScouts account and select the tax year you are looking to file a tax return for.

Step 2

If your main reason to file a Self Assessment is property income, select “I earned income from property”.

Make sure you select all the reasons why you need to prepare your tax return:

Step 3

Next, select all your sources of income, and for property select “I earned income from property”.

Next click “Continue”.

Step 4

Under the property section, answer the “Is your property jointly owned with someone else?” with “Yes” and then continue answering the property-related questions.

Step 5

After you’ve completed the remaining questions and submitted your tax return to your assigned accountant, click on your name on the top right-hand side and select “profile” from the drop-down menu.

Step 6

Select “Co-owner details” from the tab on the left and then continue to enter their details:

  • their first and last names
  • their email address.
