Revenue Law: Principles and Practice gives a clear and detailed description of all aspects of UK tax law, which means the basic principles are readily grasped. A wealth of examples are provided to illustrate the guidance given.
Now in its 36th edition, this highly respected work is a leading textbook for undergraduate students as well as being useful first point of reference for practitioners. A range of respected names in the tax world have contributed to this edition.
This year Revenue Law has been restructured under the stewardship of the two General Editors, Anne Fairpo and David Salter, with new chapters on the taxation of savings and investments and the taxation of intangibles being added. All chapters have been updated in line with recent cases, tax legislation and HMRC guidance.
