Good times for the UK property investment sector

by International Commercial Investment on May 30, 2014

Currently, the UK property investment sector has reasons to celebrate. According to the last report about this market published by the Economic Voice, the UK is one of the cheapest places to invest in properties.  These details were collected by Taxland–one of the largest independent organisations of tax advisors to international businesses–in accordance with what they call ‘Total Tax Take’. This concerns the total cost of taxes, which are related to property buying and selling, property development and property rental.

Many companies have known how to take advantage of this positive aspect and offer several opportunities of investing in this area. A clear example is the commercial investment consultancy International Commercial Investment (ICI), based in London, which has a wide range of this kind of product among its investment opportunities. In addition, ICI has recently launched an exclusive opportunity of investing in properties: Keeper’s Chase, a development of ten new detached homes with 4 bedrooms in Longridge, near Preston (UK).

One of the main objectives of International Commercial Investment is to bring investors the opportunity to invest safely, and thanks to Keeper’s Chase—among other products—this is possible due to an expected return of over 16% within 12 months. Sherwood Homes Limited will carry out the development works.  It is very important to emphasise that the developer has a long professional record of success spanning many projects. Moreover, the Local Authority, whose principal task is to ensure Building Regulation compliance, will oversee all works and will emit a Certificate of Building Regulation Compliance at the end of the activity.

Regarding Keeper’s Chase’s shares, there are 1000 available at £2,512.13 each and the minimum investment required is 4 shares (£10,048.52). These shares are available to purchase in the Single Purpose Vehicle (SPV), which is set up by a leading Manchester law firm that owns the site exclusively.

According to the Economic Voice, the United Kingdom has the second lowest tax rate on property development at 8.88%, following very closely Luxembourg’s 8.46%. The fact that there is no tax on land ownership­­—unless the property is not occupied—makes the UK even more attractive for property investments and supposes an interesting option also for international investors.

24/7 Legal Assistance Business Hub by International Commercial Investment

by International Commercial Investment on March 24, 2014

With the state of the world we live in today, it is essential that we are always legally protected. Both companies and individuals are not exempt from encountering a legal issue at any time, so we have to be ready to face these obstacles if and when they arise. Moreover, nowadays Government policy tries to reduce the cost of the legal system to the UK taxpayer, which is causing a reduction in access to publicly funded legal assistance. Therefore people are being forced to pay for legal services out of their own pockets. On this note, International Commercial Investment has discovered a way of offering not only a valuable service, but also an ideal opportunity for investment. This is the 24/7 Legal Assistance Business Hub, where qualified solicitors provide a 24 hour legal advice help line on any legal matter.

Thanks to 24/7 Business hub, International Commercial Investment offers investors the possibility of obtaining returns of 8% on capital expenditure for 5 years, with full capital repayment during the period of the investment. This investment also provides a great source of continual income growth, as the dividend is paid every six month.

This is being submitted as a unique crowd funding opportunity, which is represented by a very important firm of UK solicitors, which is associated with the UK Law Society.

This law firm has selected two national organisations to launch the Legal Expensure Insurance (LEI): a national bank and a national association. Both institutions expect that the product will be launched by the end of March 2014.

A very significant factor which the investor should note regarding the 24/7 Business Hub, is that all of LEI´s solicitors count on qualified accounts, barristers and senior QC lawyers. The policy can be adapted to suit comercial businesses and can even be adjusted to offer a tailored insurance cover for any organisation with more than 500 members. It means that the LEI is perfectly suited to any kind of business. Another positive aspect is that the LEI product can be “White Labelled” to offer proprietorship to each institution. On the other hand, legal assistance is provided for professional and legal charges for up to £100,000 per event.

Legal issues are vitally important to Business. That is the reason why 24/7 Business Hub offers all services subject to accurate investigation and diligence procedures.

Another Successful Investment Initiative Released by International Commercial Investment

by International Commercial Investment on March 17, 2014

Recent gloomy Government announcements have indicated that Britain’s current housing crisis may last ten years or more. In the UK we’re facing a massive shortage not only of starter homes but good quality family homes in particular. As fewer social housing schemes are built, the onus has fallen onto private developers to take the initiative and add to the current housing stock.

Investors looking for safe, lucrative investment opportunities are now realising the potential of UK property investment and, thanks to companies such as International Commercial Investment (ICI), more and more people are able to take advantage of this sort of low-risk, high yield investment solution.

ICI recently offered investors the chance to be part of a unique opportunity when it invited them to help ‘crowd fund’ a housing development in the North of England. Fairway View was planned as a development of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom townhouses and detached executive homes and was designed to take advantage of the natural beauty of the rolling landscape and offer realistic and affordable quality homes for families.

The unique nature of this development, however, was its revenue stream. Crowdfunding is becoming increasingly popular as a method of financing ventures, which are usually artistic in nature, but is now growing in popularity as a UK property investment vehicle. It simply involves a large number of people pooling their resources invariably, to support a specific investment.

Crowdfunding is being used to purchase the site, as well as build and develop the properties, which are going to be completed in less than a year. It proved tremendously popular for investors looking at UK real estate investment opportunities, especially when the initial investment outlay compared to the potential returns were taken into consideration. A modest investment of under £2,000 was needed to purchase one share. This attracted a return of almost £400, together with the original investment figure, which amounts to over 20%. One thousand shares were offered through International Commercial Investment’s crowdfunding initiative and were rapidly sold out.

International Commercial Investment has a proven track record of offering investors low risk, high yield investment opportunities via alternative investments. In recent years it has thoroughly investigated the medium of crowd funding and found it to be a secure and reliable method of allowing risk-averse investors to earn similar levels of returns which are usually only seen by those investing large sums in high-risk ventures.

by International Commercial Investment on March 12, 2014

The current economic downturn coupled with the fear of losing money doesn’t make it easy for people to invest in any product. People who are interested in investing in these challenging times are looking not only for a low risk product, but also one that provides high yield returns in the short term too. This forces investment companies to work much harder to ensure that the investment products they bring to the market will guarantee the lowest risks to their clients, which is exactly what International Commercial Investment has managed to achieve.  

International Commercial Investment is one of the UK’s leading alternative commercial investment providers and have just launched their latest investment opportunity, The Knoll, a development of two prestigious new build luxury homes in Wilpshire. 

Located in a picturesque village in the county of Lancashire, The Knoll will be built in harmony with Blackburn’s Victorian architecture. Both properties have been individually designed to very high standards. The plots provide around 4.200 and 3,800 square feet. They feature 4 and 6 bedrooms, a garage and impressive mature gardens. Furthermore, one of the properties boasts its very own outdoor swimming pool. 

International Commercial Investment will provide this latest investment opportunity through ‘crowdfunding’. This investment model has become a very popular method of funding investment initiatives over the last three years. It formed from a collection of people who share a common interest to support a specific investment or company. This kind of finance lets investors earn high level of returns without having to invest a very large amount of money. A report submitted by the University of Cambridge, the innovation charity Nesta and the University of California (Berkeley, USA) states that in the UK, the alternative finance market – including crowdfunding – grew from £492m pounds in 2012 to £939m in 2013.

The Knoll is expected to be finished in 14 months and is expected to offer a return to investors of over 25%.

The Convent: Grade II listed Hotel in the Cotswolds – International Commercial Investment (ICI) set to launch its first Crowdfunding Investment Opportunity

by International Commercial Investment on March 1, 2014

A high-risk approach to investment is not for everyone, which is why International Commercial Investment (ICI) is launching a new, secure investment opportunity for its clients.

Investors seeking low risk, high yield returns are now invited to participate in a relatively new form of investment opportunity in a boutique hotel in the Cotswolds, The Convent Hotel & Spa.  

Beyond Boutique Hotels is the brainchild of Matthew Roberts and Frazer Fearnhead, the driving forces behind the highly successful boutique hotel Babington House in Somerset.  By increasing cash flow, through ‘crowdfunding’, Beyond Boutique Hotels are significantly more profitable than traditionally run hotels.

Crowdfunding, which has grown in popularity over the last two years, involves the coming together, or ‘crowding’, of a number of people who share a common interest. It has been used as a form of international commercial investment to fund projects as diverse as disaster relief, artistic ventures, political campaigns and innovation development.

Hotel investment is becoming increasingly popular with investors because of three very important reasons: because of its ‘crowd-funded’ structure a relatively small commercial investment can achieve the kind of returns usually only found in large investment schemes; the increased cash flow in the hotels themselves cuts overheads and makes the hotel significantly more profit than that of a hotel run on traditional lines; and finally the booking model utilised is unique, in that the availability is marketed directly to niche organisations who require regular block bookings, maximising occupancy rates, reducing marketing budgets and reducing the level of staff required.

Typically, for investors looking for a safe commercial investment, yields can be up to 20% per year and an exit is assured if they require. The Convent Hotel and Spa, in the picturesque Cotswolds, is the first of many such Boutique Hotels planned in discreet locations around the UK being offered by International Commercial Investment, which will set the model for this unique and lucrative type of commercial investment.
