This book not right for your course?

Need more questions and answers to practice?

Why not get a copy of the sister text to this book - Taxation: incorporating the 2019 Finance Act by Alan Combs, Ricky Tutin & Peter Rowes (now in its 38th edition).

This is by far the longest standing tax textbook covering the details of the UK tax system. It is particularly suitable for students following accredited course syllabi (i.e. those with exemptions for ACCA, CIMA, ICAEW etc.) - however, its huge range of questions and answers will be a priceless supplement for all undergraduate university courses.
