5.0 out of 5 stars THE book - don't pay tax without it, 26 Nov. 2004
This review is from: Zurich Tax Handbook 2004-2005 (Hardcover)
First of all I have to plead a connection - I work for Zurich (at least for the next 30 days) - I have nothing to do with the publication of this book, just wanted to lay the cards on the table.
I was in real need of a detailed understanding of the UK tax system and this book is it. Really - it is. Don't buy the "Red-top guide to Tax dodging", or other sposored tax guide which assumes that you have the IQ of a Scandanavian Pigmy Hamster (yep, made that up), but get this guide that covers all the new stuff in detail at the front and then goes through every part of the mess that is UK tax clearly and succinctly.
I am rather annoyed that having bought this book I have found that you can now buy this book and get one of the rest of the series (pensions, investments, estate planning, retirement, expatriate or business tax and law) thrown in for FREE. So now it is two bibles for the price of one - what more could you ask.
Now I am not suggesting that this book makes great bedtime reading, but it is written clealry and simply for easy understanding - no Inland Revenue waffle here. But when you think of the fortune that you are probably paying Mr Brown and the pain that will be rained down on you if you get it wrong, it has to be in the bookcase.
Or you can always immigrate to New Zealand - 1 page tax return, no inhierentance tax, great beaches. Your choice...
