As I’m sure you’re all aware, letting agents are obliged to file an 8-3 return under self-assessment each year (without being requested by Revenue), at the time of filing your Corporation Tax return. This return gives details of all property owners, properties and rental income for the year.
The good news is that Acquaint can run this report for you at the touch of a button!
Just click on the Financial tab and choose “Produce Form 8-3”.
Please note the following requirements that were brought in since 2020:
(insert into the PPS field in Acquaint – Contact/More details);
(insert into the LPT field in Acquaint – Property/Details#3); and
When you have a new landlord or property – ensure you request the LPT and PPS at the start of each engagement, and update Acquaint for the details.
This will be required for let only properties as well as managed properties.
All estate agents have a statutory requirement to keep the client account fully reconciled throughout the year. The best approach towards meeting these requirements is to use Acquaint to manage your client account transactions.
