St James&#39s Place in 31st edition of popular tax guide

St James&#39s Place Capital has published its latest tax guide, which is available as a hardback from most bookshops.

This is the 31st edition of the guide, which describes all aspects of commercial and personal taxation, their main implications and explanations of how the system works.

Updates relating to the Finance Bill 2002 are included alongside chapters on life insurance, pensions, tax on foreign income and inheritance tax. There is a preface by St James&#39s Place Capital chairman Sir Mark Weinberg.

Tax specialist and author of the guide Walter Sinclair offers tax-saving hints and advice, from making charity donations to assessing whether becoming a limited company can offset the burden of increased National Insurance costs.

The guide has proved popular with students, professionals and the public since it was first published as the Hambro Tax Guide.

Palgrave Macmillan marketing manager Vicky Capstick says: “The St James&#39s Place Tax Guide explains everything you need to know about tax from how the system works to how best to minimise your liabilities.”
