Frequently Asked Questions

Why Claritax Books?
We publish technical, high quality tax volumes, all written by authors with practical, real-world experience. Our books offer insights into complex technical areas, while their clarity of writing and presentation help you find answers quickly and easily.

How do I pay for books?
You can pay by credit or debit card on our website or over the phone. Alternatively, you can email or call and we can send you an invoice. If you have any problems at all, don't hesitate to give us a call.

What do you charge for delivery?
UK delivery is free for orders of £100 or more. For smaller orders, there is a £4 delivery charge. EU delivery is £10 per order. Delivery to the rest of the world is £20 per order. Most orders placed by 4pm are dispatched the same day and more than 98% within 24 hours.

What postage method do you use?
We use Royal Mail or courier, depending on weight. Overseas parcels will be tracked and will require a signature on delivery. In the unlikely event that your books don't arrive, we will send out replacements free of charge.

I need a book urgently. Can you help?
Of course - just give us a call and we will do what we can.

How can I be sure this is the book I need?
You can see a full table of contents for each book we publish on the relevant page of our website. There is also a link to a sample extract to give you an idea of the level of technical detail. If you're still not sure, you may be able to try out one of our books. Please call us to discuss details.

Are you planning to publish any new titles?
Yes. We are constantly growing our list of tax titles. See our Upcoming Titles pages for details of books to be published in the next few months. Email orders@claritaxbooks.com to enquire about longer-term publications.

Can I buy your books anywhere else?
You can also find our books on Amazon, but you will get the best prices and fastest delivery by buying on our website. Some of the specialist booksellers (e.g. Wildy in London, and Prenax) also supply our books.

Are any discounts available?
Our books are competitively priced compared with those of larger tax publishers, but there are ways you can save money on our commentary. Our discounted bundles offer savings if you're buying two or more related books. Firms with a standing order to buy all our books obtain a further discount. Finally, we occasionally have books with minor cosmetic damage, which we can offer at a reduced price. We don't advertise these, but feel free to ask. Please note, you cannot usually combine multiple discounts.

Do you sell e-books?
We typically only sell electronic content to large, multi-office firms for use on their intranets. Prices are customised for each enquiry, and will be based on the number of users and offices. We are, however, happy to discuss arrangements for smaller firms. Many of our titles are available on the Croner-i platform.

Can I write for you?
We are always pleased to hear from potential new authors. The key qualities you will need are an in-depth, practical knowledge of at least one area of UK tax (more than just a general knowledge of a broad area of tax) and an ability to share your expertise clearly. Please contact Ray in the first instance.

What about social responsibility?
As a company, we support the work of Mary's Meals, a charity which provides school meals to some of the world's poorest children.

How do you reduce your impact on the environment?
Our books are all made of paper from well-managed, certified forests. Furthermore, the carbon emissions of the paper used to produce our books are offset via the World Land Trust's Carbon Balanced Paper scheme.

Are your books reviewed in the tax press?
Our books have been reviewed positively in journals such as Taxation and TAXline, as well as on AccountingWeb. Visit our Testimonials page to read comments from some of our customers.
