    Please are you saying that for exam questions we should always work out the rent a room relief using ordinary method and alternatives method and then choose the LOWER of the two?.

    Also does it mean that the rent a room only applies when the room in one’s residence is let out FURNISHED. Could there be instances when is let out unfurnished?. What will apply in this case?

      Redecoration is revenue expenditure (NOT capital expenditure) and was incurred during the tax year. Therefore, it is an allowable deduction from the rental income for the year.

      The lecturer didn’t show all of the workings for example 2 on the screen. You have to complete that yourself and check the answer. I like this, because it means you are actually trying it yourself and not just copying him!
