Capital Gains Tax 2022-23


Written for accountants and tax specialists, the text is arranged across four major sections, with 18 chapters. With expert commentary from specialist authors, the book covers all the basics, but also does much more. It addresses the difficult areas practitioners come across in their day-to-day work, including (for example) main residence relief, business asset disposal relief, partnerships, deceased estates, and much more. Available on its own or as part of a discounted bundle.

The book follows the same approach to clarity and ease of use that is already familiar to practitioners using our more specialist titles. The logical table of contents, as well as the comprehensive indexing, makes it easy for readers to find what they are after.

"Anyone engaged in private client work will appreciate having this book on their shelf as a useful reminder of the many issues arising on handling assets for clients of all sorts." - Gill Steel, LawSkills
