UK Taxation for Students is fully updated for Finance Act 2023. This book can be used either on its own or in conjunction with other texts. It is, however, completely self-contained.
This book is written in a user-friendly manner. It includes over 180 worked examples plus true and false quizzes and a further 101 questions for readers. Complex jargon is avoided. Simple English is used. This book also assumes absolutely no prior knowledge about UK taxation. This book covers the five main UK taxes: income tax (paid by individuals), capital gains tax (paid by individuals), corporation tax (paid by companies), value added tax (levied on consumers by businesses), and inheritance tax (normally payable on the death of an individual), and National Insurance Contributions.
We have seen some significant tax policy changes since the last edition, and then many of these have already been reversed! Making Tax Digital for Self-Assessment has been deferred again but we have substantial changes introduced, including to the taxation of self-employed individuals and the first increase in the rate of corporation tax since 2007.
For students at undergraduate level. Also suitable for ACCA, ICAEW and AAT.
