Income Tax 2022-23


This Income Tax volume aims to be the clearest single-volume guide to income tax in the UK. Written for accountants and tax specialists, the text is arranged across 10 sections, with a total of 43 chapters and around 1,000 pages of commentary. Available on its own or as part of a discounted bundle.

"With more than 900 pages, you'd expect this book to give wide coverage and, indeed, this is a strength, as are the extensive references to legislation and HMRC guidance. The writing style is clear and pitfalls and planning points are helpfully included. ... I commend Claritax for this first edition." TAXline review of first edition August 2021
