Many years ago, we were taught to do a critical review of both author and publisher of any title before buying it. This piece of advice was not without good reason as some titles can seriously harm your knowledge base !

The Dail Mail Tax Guide is one of the few exceptions to this advice. Why? In my view, just looking at the title will probably not be very attractive to a professional accountant or tax adviser - when compared with other well established tax annuals out there on the market.

As an accountant, this book is not a beginer's tax guide as it robustly and clearly explains all the fine technical details the average tax payer or tax advisor would need to know. You begin to fully appreciate this title when you start reading it and you begin to see that some of the areas covered (in plain English) are not in some of the 'celebrated' tax annuals out there.

This book is such a treasure. As such, I sometimes feel that the author would have done more justice to the book's even greater popularity if she had told us a little bit more about her technical background (e.g. explaining if she has a tax or accounting background as well).

Without a doubt, I will make this title an (if not the) 'annual-tax-guide- must-buy' in the years to come.

Very thoroughly recommended.

This volume has become an annual purchase as it covers all of the ground in an "easy to understand" way and has completely changed the way I have a useful "reference work" available to me
As an Accountant working in Industry for fifty years I have for many years acquired various books considered to be standard reference works. These have become very expensive and extremely weighty volumes. The Daily Mail Tax Guides provide the answers to my queries and enable me to keep reasonably up-to-date in a continually complex Tax regime. At the price offered by Amazon it is indeed a "bargain".

This is a clear book explaining simple Tax details of the individual,the self-employed and companies.

I buy it year after year and answers to queries are easy to find.

And the price is right and in scope for any purchaser.

Regards

I used to purchase annually an expensive professional taxation manual. I then discovered the Daily Mail Tax Guide, which covers almost all the tax matters on which one is likely to need advice, at a fraction of the cost. I buy the Guide each year as it is updated with the Chancellor's Budgeted amendments to tax law.

This is a good and fairly comprehensive book at a very reasonable price. It deals well with the mechanics of managing your tax affairs as well as the rules determining what taxes you have to pay and tax planning advice. The book is printed on cheap paper, which is fair enough as books like this are annuals which only have a useful life of one to two years. Be aware, however, that if your tax affairs fall outside the mainstream you will need further information from elsewhere. For instance there is very little on IR35 in relation to private service companies, corporation tax itself is not dealt with and coverage of taxation issues of pensions is not detailed enough for anyone who is involved with annual or lifetime limits. Perhaps the book could be improved with references to further sources of information. The HMRC website, for instance, can be useful in this regard.

I do not understand the ratings that the other reviewers have given this product. I bought the book to help answer questions that I had while filling out my return. I had several questions and not once did this book have the answers. I did find clear answers though to all my questions on the HMRC website - for free!
The book is filled with wholesome basic financial advice but doesn't go into any details on the UK tax code. Either get a more detailed and probably more expensive guide or rely on the advice you can find for free on the web!

A really helpful straightforward guide to looking after your own tax affairs. some parts were a bit too technical for me, but for my level of self-employment, the guidance was invaluable.

I usually purchase this publication each year and the cost is far outweighed by tax savings made. It is written in easy-to-understand language and every taxpayer should have one!

Does what it says on the tin! rather clear if you are a regular person whose affairs do not require a tax advisor (salary, pension, a bit of savings, not much investment).
