Book Description

28 Feb 2011 Harriman Business Essentials
Effective planning of your tax affairs to help your business save money Every profitable business in the UK has to pay tax, but some small businesses pay more tax than is necessary. This book examines the tax liabilities that the owners or managers of small businesses need to bear in mind and explains how to manage these tax requirements in the best possible way so as to avoid paying more tax than you have to. Uniquely, this guide traces how tax should be dealt with throughout the life-cycle of a business, from start-up to the time it is sold, wound up, or passed on, so that whatever stage your business is at this book will be valuable for you. Areas that are covered include: - What business structure you should choose when starting out: self-employed sole trader, partnership or limited company. - How to register your business and when to start paying tax. - When tax inspections might arise and how to deal with them. - How to manage business expenses effectively and make use of relevant tax benefits. - How to withdraw from a business and pass it on, or how to go about selling it. Guidance about tax is spread over many different locations; on the internet, in booklets provided by HMRC, and in magazines and annual publications. Russell Cockburn brings the information together in this simple and incisive summary enabling you to approach your tax affairs as efficiently as possible.

5.0 out of 5 stars An easy to digest tax guide 16 Jan 2012
By Sewing Directory TOP 500 REVIEWER
I know most people switch off at the mention of the word tax, but I specifically requested this book to review as I am trying to manage my business accounts myself, saving the cost of an accountant. I think the HMRC are probably sick of me calling asking questions every time I do a tax return so I asked to review this book in the hope that it would help.

The first chapter considers business forms & tax implications, the second chapter covers tax incentives when starting a business, ideal if you are on the verge of starting up. The other chapters include the tax stages of a business, business tax bills, extracting money from the business and sale of the business amongst others. The chapter breakdown and index make it easy to go straight to the relevant section if you have a specific question you want answered. Obviously some of the subject matter does get rather complex but there are useful little boxes giving examples and breaking down calculations for you. Also make sure you read the Appendices, there is a lot of useful information from elsewhere in the book summarised there.

Within minutes I had managed to answer several of my tax questions, proving this to be a useful reference guide. I also found answers to many of the things I had called HMRC to ask in the past so if I had owned this book before launching my business it probably would have saved me many phone calls. All in all this book is a useful guide for business owners.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fab little book 16 Jun 2011
When you're setting up a business often the last thing you're thinking about is paying tax - you'e more concerned with making some money first! Not necessarily the best way to go, but a fact of life. This fab book allows you to dip in and out of it as the need arises and alerts you to pitfalls before you fall into them.

It's written in an easy flowing language which is unusual for such a dry subject. I regularly use it to check I'm on the right track, follow up references and now I'm a bit more organised for future tax planning. It's good for interpreting what my accountant has said too - you know what it's like when you come out thinking you've understood everything when you're in the meeting and forgotten 95% by the time you've left it!

Great book at a bargain price.
