Jacket Text

Of all the UK's myriad taxes, VAT is one that affects us all, but as a small business owner it causes a great deal of uncertainty. When, if at all, should you register for VAT? How do you charge and collect VAT? What do you actually have to pay to HMRC? And what happens if you're making sales, or buying supplies, from outside the UK?

In this new e-book, her third, Emily Coltman ACA, one of the UK's foremost small business accountants, answers all these questions and many more, in the plain, simple English we have come to expect from her work.
