Increase in Rent-a-Room Relief

If you rent out a room in your only or main home, you can currently claim up to £4,250 in rent-a-room relief.

This means that you can receive up to £4,250 per year tax free income from letting out furnished accommodation in your home.

However, from 6th April 2016, this relief is set to increase by over 75% to £7,500 per year, giving an opportunity for householders with spare rooms to generate additional tax free income.
