Formerly known as "Simon's Direct Tax Service", this service was relaunched as Simon's Taxes in September 2008, 60 years after it was first published in 1948. "Simon's Taxes" remains the leading reference service on UK direct taxes (income tax, capital gains tax, corporation tax and inheritance tax). Enhancements to the relaunched service include new coverage of national insurance contributions and additional narrative on both business and international taxation with extensive details of overseas tax regimes. Simon's is the most popular tax reference service in the UK - it is relied on by more accountants and tax practitioners, solicitors and barristers than any other service of its kind. The main part of the service is the unrivalled narrative, which provides practical and authoritative guidance written by leading practitioners drawn from a range of different disciplines and reviewed by the distinguished Simon's editorial board.The Simon's subscription comprises: the full ten-volume looseleaf binders and monthly updates, providing the detailed Simon's narrative together with relevant supporting materials, including HMRC materials and UK double tax treaties; four Tolley Tax Annuals, the leading handbooks on the four main direct taxes (income tax, capital gains tax, corporation tax and inheritance tax); the monthly Taxation Service DVD (including electronic versions of Simon's, the direct tax legislation and the full text of HMRC's Internal Guidance Manuals) available in BOS or Folio (see Code SDTSF for DVD only); the annual Budget Bulletin and Finance Act Handbook; the fortnightly Simon's Tax Briefing newsletter, to keep you abreast of all the latest developments; and, unlimited use of Tolley's Practice Support, our telephone tax helpline service.
This service is staffed by senior tax practitioners and it can be used to provide guidance, support or merely second opinion on all areas of direct and indirect taxation. Whatever your tax research requirements, "Simon's Taxes" is the cornerstone of your tax library.
