Having used this book for over a year now I have found it an accessible text for provision of legal obligations when setting up and running a limited company in the UK. The book lends itself to the typical scenario where one individual fulfils the role of company secretary, accountant and managing director. It has a good index, and has proved particularly useful with (1) holding and minuting official company meetings; (2) Basic company accounts preparation. However, it does not pretend to be an accounting book, and it is recommended that the purchaser also acquire a text on basic company book-keeping - do these yourself and minimise unavoidable accounting fees!

Very well written, a lot of useful information, explains all you would like to know about all these details. I wasn't aware of all these things you should know when you run a limited company until I read this book. It is rather not a detailed guide to your paper work or documents you would need to write. It is more like a reference manual to different aspects of the organization. If you need to know some details about secretaries, shares, owners, board of directors, etc, you jast open the book and it is there.

This book covers all the basics of starting a new business. It's up-to-date with the latest legislation, reads easily in 2 hours and you can always come back to it for reference. Overall great purchase, detailed enough that you don't need to buy additional books and very accessible.

Bought this when I set up my own company. It is full of useful information - far more informative and helpful than I expected. It's well structured, easy to navigate / dip in and out of. The chapters are clearly labelled and contain enough information to get a good grounding in what is needed and what expectations are placed on company directors.
I regularly refer to it, 18 months on.
