I am based in Scotland and just had a consultation with Mark Alexander regarding my tax structure position to best continue my property business as efficient as possible. I found Mark very helpful and informative.

The advise appears to be focused on the long term interest of my position and independent. I have been using Property118 for a while now and will continue to.

Landlords really need a good site like this and good property people like Mark to help balance matters out in an environment so imbalanced in multiple levels at the moment.

As a relatively competent individual I have slowly built up a small portfolio of nine properties over the last 18 years, managing them myself, including accounts and tax. I have never sought professional advice and generally have felt very strongly that I can learn most things myself. To a certain extent I still subscribe to that and will continue to do so. However, a few years ago I started following 118 and, being the sceptic that I am, only very reluctantly a few months ago decided to bite the bullet and sought advice from Mark - it is the first advice I have ever sought. I have never looked back and my only genuine wish was that I looked for professional advice earlier! Partnerships and incorporation are on the horizon and the enormous long term financial gain is not in question. Mark, along with Mark Smith at Cotswold Barristers, and his preferred accountants (again a new thing for me) have opened up a whole new world to me and to be honest I have been blind to the complexities (and the opportunities) which exist when dealing with property. For me, I had exhausted my capacity to learn ever more complex solutions and therefore the logical step was to reach out for help. It does cost of course (which was my greatest emotional hurdle) and the old adage "you get what you pay for" is certainly true. I am now using the services of some serious professionals who cost money, but will pay for themselves handsomely over a short time. Crucially I have been able to ask Mark a lot of daft questions and I consider myself extremely fortunate to have linked in with someone so passionate, knowledgeable and honest (and who seemingly doesn't sleep and responds in the middle of the night!). I am enormously thankful that I made that first bold step contacting Mark and am now linked with a great team. Well done 118, and thank you Mark Alexander and Mark Smith for your crucial advice and thoughts - I am enormously grateful. You would think I got some kickback for this testimonial (!!) but I unfortunately don't - it's really the very least I could do. Thank you.

I have consulted various people who claimed to know something about property and tax, but Mark Alexander really does know EVERYTHING about law and tax. He laid out the various options and recommended a strategy which I will follow. It was a pleasure to talk with the man himself, the Sage of Malta!

I have been researching the various options to Incorporate my property rental business for a long time, met with a number of different consultants, but was never fully confident of the advice given based on my own research. Having booked the initial consultation with Mark, I felt very comfortable with the advice and options which were backed up with a report from which I went on to Incorporate my business. Very professional organisation, would highly recommend...

With section 24 really beginning to bite, after 25 years as a portfolio landlord, I can honestly say that the incorporation advice given, is the best advice I have ever had!

I have been a long-time landlord and booked in a consultation session with Mark for advice on incorporation with my partner.

Mark guided us very patiently through the process of incorporation. He spent a lot of time explaining how best we can achieve the maximum tax advantages, many of which were unknown to me. He has gone over the incorporation process numerous times as we have had additional questions or our circumstances have changed. We are very pleased with the advice he has given us. He cleary knows his stuff. Additionally Mark has always been impressive with how quick he responds with clear and well detailed answers.

Thanks Mark!

Our consultations with Mark Alexander have been invaluable. With the recent tax changes we were unsure what we should do with our property and other revenue streams. During the last couple of years we have been sleep walking into the unknown.

Having discussed our options with Mark, who clearly knows his stuff, we now have a basis of a plan. Something we hope will work well for us now, in the future... and for our children.

Mark doesn't just talk the talk. He walks it. He is friendly, professional and knowledgeable. It is evident Mark has many years of first hand experience in property, law and tax planning. He also has a genuine passion to help.

If you don't understand a particular point, Mark walks you through the figures with patience and in a non-patronising manner. We look forward to seeking future help and guidance from him. Highly recommend!

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

As portfolio landlords, and with the ever changing landscape we find ourselves operating within, we have found Mark and Property 118 to be founts of all knowledge when it comes to giving us options for how best to continue furthering our property aspirations.
After a consultation with Mark and the pearls of wisdom he has had to offer, we are in the process of taking steps for incorporating our portfolio. This will be achieved without us incurring any SDLT or CGT, whilst also retaining our existing mortgage products.
We have found Mark to be totally transparent and professional during our discussions and he has been wholly approachable with further guidance and advice when needed.
Thank you Mark and Property 118. Keep up the good work.

Having made the 'informed' decision to incorporate our property portfolio partnership, owned by my wife and I; we found the process that Mark Alexander and Mark Smith have in place to enable this is excellent. Their extensive knowledge and the advice they give has made a complex and daunting issue simple to understand and follow.
Just as important was the confidence they both gave us to 'take the incorporation plunge'. Thank you.
