4.0 out of 5 stars Great book for accountants – not so for lawyers
This book is a good starting point for understanding the basic rules of UK taxation, and it contains many great examples of how you calculate tax in practice. The prose is clear and concise, although it can at times be so concise (abstract) that (i) the meaning is unclear and (ii) you wonder how a given rule applies in not-so-straight forward situations.

3.0 out of 5 stars Gets the job done, but we get milked each year.
I think the books from this series do their job, but it's disgusting we students for asked for close to £50 once a year for a book that updates a tiny percentage of its pages a year.

Pure greed in my opinion.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book for accountants – not so for lawyers, 5 Mar. 2014
This review is from: Taxation: Finance Act 2013 (Paperback)
This book is a good starting point for understanding the basic rules of UK taxation, and it contains many great examples of how you calculate tax in practice. The prose is clear and concise, although it can at times be so concise (abstract) that (i) the meaning is unclear and (ii) you wonder how a given rule applies in not-so-straight forward situations. I don't think the author can do much about this. Going into depth would make the book twice as long. But certain words and phrases could be given a more detailed treatment – that would certainly make the book more useful for lawyers, who are interested in the scope of tax rules.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book, Great Teacher, Nice Guy, 3 Feb. 2014
This review is from: Taxation: Finance Act 2013 (Paperback)
Alan is not only a great teacher but also has written a very easy to follow book that makes learning taxation very much more simple than its counterparts.

This book will help you learn taxation for either exam success or to give you a very good understanding of the taxation subject. Well worth purchasing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Description inaccurate, 30 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Taxation: Finance Act 2013 (Paperback)
Item arrived on time, but condition was not as described. Description said there was some minor wear on spine, I actually found that there have been notes scribbled all throughout the book. Very annoying.

As described, a functional text book to aid my studies. Nothing more to say, a text book is a text book.
