This review is from: Tax Avoidance A practical guide for UK residents (Paperback)
I'm sorry to have to disagree with everyone here but the idea that this is a 'practical guide' for tax avoidance is utter rubbish. The book is so vague, so badly written and so full of errors as to make it completely unreliable and almost entirely useless. I only hold back from giving it no stars at all on the basis that he's managed to copy some official tables from the Inland Revenue correctly on such matters as taper relief and business miles. Otherwise, to be blunt, you can learn many times this amount by visiting the Hmrc's website for nothing.
The order of the book is more or less random with no connecting or explanatory headings, presumably because it's simply a list of any bits of information he could lay his hands on at the time. I was also more than annoyed to have paid for a book that has only one chapter before it enters its appendix. Is it some sort of joke? Seriously, if you trust any of the contorted, confused and misrepresented assertions in this book then you are a financial idiot, and should consider abandoning your business.
The intellectually inept meanderings of the text are adequately summed up by the 20 pages of proud advertisements for the author's moronic 'self-help' and 'spiritual growth' books at the end of a book that lasts only 57 pages to begin with.
Avoid at all costs, unless you think trusting people who peddle expensive self-help courses the best way to look after your finances.
