    Question Rent discount due to repairs and disruption - how to record

    Last November my property developed a damp problem. Now the repair of this took several days and a lot of disruption - kitchen could not be used etc. (The tenants were advised to move out by the damp proofer for the duration). Anyway to cut a long story short we negotiated a month's rent free plus 90% discount of another month in exchange for them repainting the repaired walls.

    The question is how do i account for these discounts. Are they allowable - if they are what do they come under. I am using ezpz landlord (similar to sage) for my accounts. Thanks for any help

    You didn't receive anything, so there is nothing to account for. So month one is:

    Income: £0

    Month two income: £50 (assuming is 10% of the rent, i.e. a 90% discount)
