Your total rental income tax that you have to pay to HMRC depends on three things:
In your case you earned £18,000 from renting out a buy to let property, on top of £38,000 from other sources.
Your rental earnings are £18,000
You can claim £1,000 as a tax-free property allowance.
As a result, your taxable rental income will be: £17,000.
The first £12,270 will be taxed at 20%: £2,454 in rental income tax.
The next £4,730 will be taxed at 40%: £1,892 in rental income tax.
Even if you don’t own the property you’re renting out, you still count as a landlord in the eyes of HMRC. This means you’ll have to declare your rental income and potentially pay tax on it. Make sure you register for Self Assessment by 5th October to be able to do this.
