Section 309: Rent-a-room relief
1256.This section modifies the normal profit calculation rules in Part 3 of this Act when a property business consists of, or includes, rent-a-room lettings as defined in Chapter 1 of Part 7 of this Act. It is new.
1257.When the lettings meet the conditions for rent-a-room relief in Part 7 of this Act the income from these lettings may, depending on the total amount, either be exempt from tax or subject to a special calculation rule. This section ensures that the rent-a-room rules take priority over the usual calculation rules in the property income Part.
