Tax Consultation Testimonials

I can’t recommend enough a tax consultation with Mark Alexander and his team at property118.com.

I have been so impressed and grateful for the continued care and guidance I have received over the last 3 years since my initial tax consultation from Mark and his team at Property118.

Even in these very difficult times all my enquires and questions have been answered straight away and Mark A has always made himself and his team available at all times. No matter where in the world he happens to be.

Everybody’s circumstances will be different and unique and so the advice and guidance given will also be. My particular position was very complicated as a non UK resident property investor of some 20 years there were many moving parts and complicated scenarios that Mark and his team dealt with brilliantly.

On the 6th of April 2020 I celebrated the new tax year as a share holder in my family investment company and was able to benefit from some of the most clever and innovative tax planning I ever thought possible. Mark’s advice has set my company and its shareholders, my family, on a fantastic foundation for the future and we will be forever grateful for all the help and guidance we have received.

I am delighted to have achieved the incorporation of the business for several reasons. 

Using Mark Smith’s legal framework I did not need to refinance all my existing mortgages and am able to keep some of the best variable rate tracker mortgages.

As an incorporated Ltd. company, my business is no longer subject to the punishing section 24 restrictions on the loss of tax relief for finance costs introduced by George Osborne. 

As a company of which all members of my immediate family are shareholders I am now able to plan for succession in ways I would not otherwise have been able to and ensure the future of the business. 

As a company, the equity I have built up in the portfolio over the many years by not over borrowing has been rewarded by being converted into a substantial Directors loan account and share equity in the business. We can draw Monday from the directors loan tax free as it’s a debt not equity. An amazing tax planning opportunity I was not even aware existed.

The value of the properties now within the company has been raised to the current market valuations. This gives me the freedom to adjust the portfolio without being subject to capital gains tax and reinvest the funds into more profitable properties if I choose too.  

At a time when unprecedented amounts of government money is being spent on keeping the economy alive, this will lead to inevitable future personal tax increases which will not affect companies in the same way as individuals. This is because the UK will need to maintain a competitive advantage internationally and attract inward investment to help the economy grow in the future. 

The company is UK based and subject to UK tax regardless of where me or my family choose to live. This gives us the flexibility to live where we choose without affecting the company or its investments. 

These and more advantages together with the help and support offered by Mark and the team now put our family business on a much more secure and safe foundation from which to grow and prosper even in these very difficult times. 

I can’t recommend a tax consultation with Mark Alexander enough. He is living the dream and has the capacity to understand your personal situation and help you in ways you probably didn’t even think possible.

Without a doubt the best money I have ever spent on tax planning and advice.

Fergus Wilson Panorama documentary - now available on iPlayer

OMG Could that have been any worse? Only if Fergus would have tried to eat one of the poor deaf homeless children on camera. What a one sided load of tosh. Why did nobody think to ask why he couldn’t sell any of the properties to other LL’s??? No comment at all on why so many LLs selling up or section 24. I have been a LL for around 20 years and have never used a S21 notice at all. Very dissatisfied with the BBC and Panorama what a complete load of tosh. Why would you ever want to get involved in a program like that. I guess that will be the end of S21 notices and the right to sell your investments when you choose. Why let the truth get in the way of a good story eh???... Read More

Tax Consultation Testimonials

Dear Mark,
My wife and I would like to thank very much for your valuable time in trying to help us to make our UK residential property business as tax efficient as possible. The Tax planning consultation has been invaluable. We greatly value your huge experience and the multitude of contacts that you have been so kind as to share with us. We only wish that we had contacted you a few years earlier so we could have planned our steps to incorporation with your help and guidance from the start.
Best regards
Zeph... Read More
