This handbook highlights key issues, tax planning opportunities and pitfalls for the unwary, and includes numerous worked examples and case studies, as well as references throughout to legislation and HMRC guidance.
With contributions from a wealth of property tax specialists, this book is an invaluable resource for accountants and tax practitioners who have landlords as clients and is also ideal for property investors themselves.
