This is largely due to the lack of accurate information. As the general biblical proverb says: “My people perish for lack of knowledge.” If the end date and rent for the first five years are known, the procedure is the same as for any other rent subsidy, and no further return or payment will be required in the event of an actual subsidy. However, if the end date of the actual lease is not yet known, the fictitious lease agreement must be considered an indeterminate lease, while HMRC would accept an estimate of the lease date to be taken, with another payment/restitution required if the lease is granted. If the rent is unknown for the first five years in the event of a significant performance, the fictitious lease is treated with an uncertain rent, with another payment/restitution required at the time of the award of the tenancy agreement. Instead of executing a lease (sign, seal or both), you can execute a lease. A lease setting out the terms and conditions to be included in a rental agreement.
All pending LTDS must be paid and a refund of the land transaction must be forwarded to HMRC within 30 days of the effective date. Any other payment or return must be submitted to HMRC within 30 days of the conclusion of the lease, although the government proposes to reduce the bidding period to 14 days from 2017-18.
