Guide To Incorporation For Private LandlordsMake Text Bigger
This 17 page Guide To Incorporation For Private Landlords has been produced by Cotswold Barristers and Property118 Limited for private landlords and their accountants to gain a quick but detailed overview of the costs, features, benefits and rules of incorporation. We expect IFA’s, mortgage brokers and letting agents will also find it incredibly helpful to build their knowledge base and use as a business retention tool.
We commend all landlords who would like to know more about incorporation to download this eBook and to send a copy to their accountant to open up a discussion.
Many accountants are beginning to realise they have a client retention problem as landlords are seeking advice elsewhere if their accountants are not up to speed with the new tax rules and what can be done about them. At Property118 Limited we prefer to work with our clients existing advisers. This is beneficial to the accountancy firm to retain clients and we do not offer any competing accountancy services.
It is also beneficial to landlords because this saves them the hassle of building new trust based relationships. Moving to another accountancy practice is always a last resort option in our opinion because it can cause just as much hassle as changing banks.
