    I am a Freelance Quantity Surveyor, with 15 years experience working for Main Contractors. More recently i have set up freealance and carry out work for small builders and sub-contractors. I hope that by being freelance i will have more time to acquire property and build a pension pot for the future, as well as trying to gain financial freedom before I am 55.

  1. @azzurri85 I haven't got it resolved yet.
  2. I've had this issue with Starling, they want decisions in principle before I can open an account
  3. Hi Hubbers, I already have a Starling Account for my Limited Company Surveying business. I've tried to open a second account for my new Limited property company but I cannot prove ownership of any properties etc because I'm just at the start of my property journey. Starling keep asking for lease agreements or proof of ownership etc but I cannot provide what I do not have. Has anyone else had a similar problem getting started? Any advice or work around? I've spoken with someone but they didn't fill me with confidence and I'm waiting on a call back.
  4. Hi all, I'm catching up on old episodes. How do Rob and Rob access all of the old Nationwide Price Indicies (Index) information. I've been on their website and can only go back for the last couple of years. Thanks
  5. @adder1, what do you do? I am a Freelance Quantity Surveyor and operate through a limited company. I understand that mortgage companies do not like lending to a 'non property' business, which will limit your options for the future. My plan is to have a holding company above my Surveying Company, and my new property company. I'll be a director of all three, with profits flowing from the Surveying company up to my holding company and loaned back to the property company. I'm yet to put this into practice, but 2021 will be the year. I do need to run all of this through my accountant though. Good luck
  6. Do you own the whole building?
  7. What is your business interest? I recently set up as a freelance quantity surveyor. I have been surveying for 15 years, and coronavirus + redundancy made me strike out on my own. I am employed by my own limited company and so far so good.

    Hi @jamesca, no it didn't bother me. I just checked your profile and you had no posts and you were a new user so i wondered if it was spam.

    Hi all, Has anyone else heard of Qeeper and received a message from "jamesca"? Thanks
  10. As @david slater says, they are a cost of doing business. You can carry losses forward until you make a profit.
  11. I was going to say this, i understand that you can invest upto 40K in a pension, and from what i understand you can do this as a lump sum on an annual basis, but you really need to run that through an accountant and a Financial Advisor
