He decided to form his rental business into a company to be called “Martin’s Properties Ltd”. He then purchased a second house to rent to tenants for a price of £300,000.

Martins Properties Ltd was incorporated on the 1st November. Martin then sold his first house to the company for £400,000 and sold his second house to the company for £600,000. Martin did not disclose to anyone the profit that he made from these sales.
