HMRC are only interested in receiving the LPC disclosure form if there is tax due. In some cases there will be losses and we always send HMRC a copy of the profit and loss account showing the losses and confirm that they will be taken to the self-assessment tax return to set against future profits.
Although HMRC should automatically register someone for self-assessment when they register to take part in the Let Property Campaign we have found that HMRC fail to do this and for anyone taking part in the LPC we would recommend that they register for self-assessment at about the same time as they notify HMRC they are participating in the LPC.
HMRC claim that the LPC gives an individual a more favourable penalty position than if they made a disclosure by other routes. Although we do not necessarily agree with this statement it is the only route for people who have undeclared rental income only.
