Great book for accountants – not so for lawyers
on 5 March 2014
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.
