If I have an arrangement whereby I lent money to a friend at

Resolved Question:

If I have an arrangement whereby I lent money to a friend at an agreed rate of annual interest, but tax year just gone no payments were made towards the principal or the interest, should I declare the interest due as if it had been paid to me, or only declare such interest when it has actually been paid. (It is a bridging loan connected to a house sale, so the interest and principal will be paid in one lump sum once the sale has been completed)
