“Indispensable, authoritative and clear guide to taxation law.” – Student Law Journal
Davies: Principles of Tax Law is an accessible and straightforward guide to the legal constructs underlying the UK tax system. Since its first edition in 1980 the work has sought to distil not only the statutory material but also the substantial number of judicial decisions on tax law into an understandable form. The work explains the various principles underlying the six major taxes – income tax, national insurance, corporation tax, capital gains tax, inheritance tax and VAT – and how they work in practice. Major pieces of legislation and relevant case law are discussed to provide an insight into how tax law has developed and is applied.
