Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Does the Landlord allow you to sublet please?
Ok. Then it is just a lodger agreement you need
They are not subletting just renting a room, so they are a lodger
You can earn up to £4,250 a year tax fre
* free *
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
What's the difference between subletting and a lodger?
Subletting is generally the whole property.
Lodger is a room
Can I clarify anything else for you?
Will I need to register for the government scheme, in which I tell them I'm renting the room, or can I declare the earnings on my self-assessment?
No you don't need to register as long as the rent is below £4,250
That is tax free
Otherwise yes you declare it to HMRC
Does that help?
Yes. Final question - the earnings will be £6000 per year. Do I declare this on my self assessment, or another scheme via Gov.uk?
You declare via self assessment
Ok, that's clear, thank you.
I'll be off now. Have a good evening.
