Property Accountants in Swindon

Accountants for property developers

Whether you’re renovating your first flat or managing an extensive portfolio, there are a lot of things to think about as a property developer.

As you see each project through to completion, you’ll need to manage your supplies and costs, monitor market changes, keep up with ever-changing regulation, and ultimately make sure you achieve the return on your investment you’re hoping for.

Handling your regular accounting and tax commitments on top of all that can be a near-impossible task. That’s where AMS Accountancy can help.

We are local property accountants in the Swindon and Wiltshire area, with a wide range of experience working with property developers of all kinds – residential and commercial, new and established, small and large-scale.

We’ve helped our clients through conversions, renovations, and building projects from start to finish, keeping their books in order along the way while also spotting opportunities to save costs and increase profits.

There’s a real advantage of working with property accountants near you, rather than choosing a national or online-only firm; our expert knowledge of the Swindon property market means we can offer specific and relevant advice, as well as supporting you with our local network of property industry professionals.

Accountants for landlords

As a landlord, you want to know your accounts are in good hands while you’re busy looking after your properties and managing your tenants’ needs.

Working with a landlord accountant near you means you always have someone nearby to answer your questions and help you to make key decisions about your property portfolio.

We’ve worked with new buy-to-let landlords, professional property investors operating at a national level, and everyone in between.

Our breadth of experience in this sector means we can give you relevant advice at every stage of your journey as a landlord, from guidance as you structure your business to advice on selling up and making the most of your investments.

And as local accountants for landlords, we know the Swindon property market inside out, so we can offer specific and practical advice on letting properties in this area.

Specialist property accounting services

We offer a range of services for property developers and landlords, from initial structuring advice through to guidance on your tax obligations when you sell a property.

One key area for unincorporated landlords to consider is the upcoming introduction of Making Tax Digital (MTD) for income tax self-assessment. Rental income is included in the threshold for this scheme, which means you could be brought under the rules of MTD even if you don’t run a business outside of letting property.

This is likely to catch out many landlords who wouldn’t otherwise consider themselves to be ‘self-employed’. But if you fall within MTD, we can get you set up on compatible software and file your updates according to the rules.

Our property accounting services include:

  • Project accounting for property development
  • CIS advice and returns
  • Limited company incorporation
  • Advice for different property business structures, including buy-to-let, short-term rental, and furnished holiday lets
  • Tax planning for property businesses
  • Specialist advice on expense and capital allowance claims
  • VAT support and returns
  • Capital gains tax planning for the disposal of properties
  • Self-assessment tax returns for unincorporated landlords
  • Guidance on landlord regulations, including tenancy laws and houses in multiple occupation (HMOs)
