Some reviews (covers may vary)

"The book really is an excellent guide for any startup or SME" - Alex Bellinger, SmallBizPod Blog.

"I never thought I'd find myself getting excited over a book about keeping accounts but this is definitely a book to get excited about." 5/5 Brilliant Business Books

Our Principal says "Ok hands up, I wrote this book although its not my picture on the front! This book has been written as a companion for the small business owner to guide you through many of the complexities of compiling your own accounts and help you complete both your VAT and self assessment tax returns.

As an accountant dealing with owner managed businesses on a day to day basis, I tend to be regularly asked the same sorts of questions by clients who tend to also quite regularly be unable to afford to pay for my time to help them properly. Unable to find anything suitable in print, a few years ago I compiled a serious of short guides on important topics which answer most of the common questions new businesses face. With the help of Tax Café these original popular ebook guides have been transformed to become this book, now in its 5th year, which is an essential companion of resources for you to draw on, not only in the first year, but over several years as you expand your business."

Our Principal says "well I didn't write this one, but I really wish I had. This book is great background for anyone contemplating or involved in property investment. I quite regularly recommend my property owning clients obtain a copy as background reading before helping them with their tax planning. I've actually been known to dip into it myself now and again to refresh my memory on a topic as it's a lot easier reading than my normal sources!" More details....
