TolleyGuidance Corporate Tax

The TolleyGuidance Corporate Tax module helps you address the tax issues that affect larger companies and multinational groups. Rely on up-to-date practical commentary, worked examples and templates, whether you are working in practice or in an in-house tax team. 

Explore the module for information and support on a wide range of topics. From corporation tax compliance matters, to more complex tax advisory issues such as sales, acquisitions and flotations; company reorganisations and demergers; and international tax and transfer pricing.

Let the tax accounting and audit services section guide you through the tax reporting requirements for statutory financial statements, under both UK GAAP and IFRS. Then confirm your knowledge by following worked examples of the appropriate disclosures.

Save research time and get solutions fast, by following the links in all the commentary. They take you straight to relevant legislation, HMRC guidance, case law and other sources of useful background information.

"The logical structure of the modules on TolleyGuidance caters perfectly to the technical requirement of our practice. The package is an excellent guide with ease of use and clarity of content. We were particularly impressed with the quality of the videos and examples which we think will add great value to our internal training programs. We have used LexisNexis for a long time now and we must say that the client services are remarkable. We really appreciate all their efforts in designing client specific, user friendly products at affordable prices."
