Like many, I don't have much free time
18 March 2016
I bought this book to try and understand how opening a business might help me lower my tax bill from 50-100% of my income. Like many, I don't have much free time, so needed a book that would very quickly and simply enlighten me on dealing with tax and potentially starting my own business. In the first pages Russell stated he offers free tax advice to anyone who bought the book. So, to save time, I emailed him. I honestly was not expecting a response given I'm sure he is extremely busy, especially considering I emailed him on the day the national budget was released. Yet just before midnight, on the same day, he emailed me his professional, extremely helpful and free advice, which was supported when I got a reply from the equally helpful Enterprise Europe network the next day. (The Tax office and National Insurance Helpline did not have a clue). He thus saved me an enormous amount of time and the price of an accounting consultation and I'm immensely grateful for his excellent customer service and support towards his clients. As for his book, well regardless of whether I eventually open a business or remain self-employed, it has already benefited me significantly. I now understand important business issues like pricing, maintaining accounts, developing a reputation etc. much better, and it contains a realm of further information I've no doubt will be useful for those who go on to open a business. Thank you Russell!
