I have been worrying about my tax situation for months and keep reading the case studies and strategies shared on Property118 but none of them quite fit my own circumstances. My partner and I are both high rate tax payers but only own a few properties. Last night I decided to contact Mark Alexander for a Consultation and we spoke for just under an hour this morning. It's like the fog has cleared, I now know exactly what I need to do. Thank you Mark
We offer a good service to students in our local area and have high levels of referrals. We have over 15 years experience in this sector, so it was a shock, after the government announced its changes, to realise it may not be worth continuing. We found Mark through an article in the Daily Mail. On looking at this website we could see that here was someone who knew exactly what they were talking about and trying to help others. Other advisors, most of whom were recommended by the NLA or advertising with them, had tried to get us to pay large amounts of money with very little information forthcoming before asking us to commit which is why we had no hesitation in paying the very reasonable £400 consultation fee with Mark. The spreadsheets and information he sent are very informative and helpful. The telephone session was also illuminating. We are going to work with Mark and our accountants. Instead of thinking of scaling down in light of the changes we now hope to move forward and grow the business.
My wife and I have also found incorporation, tax reliefs and benefits very confusing. However, thanks to our personal consultation with Mark, things are so much clearer, and most importantly, Mark has instilled so much confidence in us with his expert knowledge and friendly manner, that we have already taken action on the next step in our journey towards incorporation. Prior to the consultation, Mark requested minute details about our tax position, portfolio structure and other matters, to ensure he could customise his recommendations to us personally.
He put a lot of work into this as was evident from his detailed report. we now have a road map set out ahead of us now.
Big thanks Mark 🙂
My wife and I were seriously considering incorporating our property portfolio and following a meeting at Baker Street with Mark Alexander and Mark Smith speaking to us we have paid Mark Alexander founder of Property 118 £400 to give us further advice. This information was extremely helpful and Mark Alexander has promptly answered ALL our difficult questions and there were plenty! We have a better understanding of incorporation and Beneficial Interest Company Trusts (BICT) and are now moving on to the next stage in the process. We thoroughly recommend anyone with a portfolio of properties who needs professional advice on the benefits of incorporating to contact Mark Alexander for good sound, prompt advice. Best tax planner we have met to date. Thank you Mark.
Like so many other Landlords I have been pondering the longterm effects of the Section 24 Tax changes to me personally. I ruefully came to the conclusion that for the first time ever I would have to pay for some advice. Mark struck me as an individual who has walked the walk rather than just talk the talked so it was an obvious choice for me to sign up for one of his consultations. I took the opportunity of meeting with Mark whilst on holiday in Malta. The meeting was relaxed and one key question was answered.... to incorporate or not right now. A stratetgy for the future was discussed and that has now moved on to the implementaion phase. In passing Mark pointed out one small and obscure error in my annual tax return accounting practices (Thankfully the error had only been short term but would have gone on much longer if not spotted). It won't be many years before a correction to that error will pay for the consultation and the weeks holiday in Malta. So all in all, largely thanks to Mark I am feeling pretty comfortable with the tax changes ahead and how to deal with them. Thank you Mark.
I booked a consultation with Mark after hearing him speak at the Baker Street Property Meet a few weeks ago. He is an excellent speaker and I was really inspired by his no nonsense commercial approach to the topics covered and subsequent Q&A session. I had read all of the articles posted on P118 regarding tax changes and potential restructuring options multiple times prior to booking a session with Mark. I would certainly recommend you also do this as it means you can get the most from his expertise and really get into the nuances of your situation. He fully assessed my needs and regularly checked my understanding throughout the session. I came away with a very clear understanding of the next steps in my property career and exactly how I could implement the proposed changes. I’ve used the P118 team to implement some of my next steps already and highly recommended them to other investors.
Thanks to Mark, Neil and Mike for the advice and running such a slick operation. Keep up the great work.
I had no hesitation in booking a consultation with Mark Alexander and it was very good value for money. The key to his approach is to bring different aspects of the path together to line them up so that it is easy to navigate. After initial email consultation, he will let you know if he can help you or not. So it is risk free..
I have no hesitation recommending him.
I am now liaising with my accountant and may need some clarifications as my accountant seems to need some help !
After spending quite some time thinking about the options of whether to incorporate our business or not, we decided to book a consultation with Mark Alexander. We already knew Mark from the West Brom case where they were wrongly hiking interest rates on our tracker mortgages and we joined the action group via Property118 to take them to court. We were over the moon to hear that they went on to win the case and West Brom had to repay over £27 million to landlords for overpayments and interest on top. We personally received a five figure sum from West Brom back to our bank account. Thank you Mark and your team!!
So, when it came to the incorporation issue we went back to Mark and booked a phone consultation. And again it was worth every penny! Mark came back to us immediately, he answered all our questions and made the way forward so much clearer, and has saved us more money in the process. He is very knowledgeable, professional, down to earth, easy to talk to and always seems to go the extra mile. We cannot recommend him highly enough!
Thanks to Mark I've gone from a woolly understanding of a lot of the issues in an unconnected way to complete understanding of what I need to do. I have a clear way forward and can go back to running my business rather than trying to pull Osborne's knife out of my back.

And are we glad we did! How refreshing it was talking to someone who could answer our questions! Mark could relate to everything we were asking. His knowledge and experience is off the scale. He not only answered our questions, he pre-empted other questions we had, and provided additional information he knew would be useful to us. We are very grateful for the hour he spared us, and will definitely be contacting Mark again in future.
