Question in full:
I have a few properties which give me some net income, and I wonder what is the best way of running that as part of my business to maximise my tax return?
A: The tax and vat position on rental properties can be complex and the possible taxes inter-relate. I would suggest in the first instance you discuss this with your accountant.
There is potential to claim some car expenses against rental income, but this is likely to be limited.
