Tax Investigation For Dummies - Win £10

One of my very loyal readers, Nick Morgan, has asked me to post this message about his book "Tax Investigation for Dummies" and a wee competition that he is running:

"Do you know where the goalposts are? 

Anybody in the tax investigation game knows that HMRC is constantly moving the goal posts and not just moving them, painting them different colours and pushing them closer together too! 

Any advice on tax investigation has to be checked, double checked and continually updated. I’ve just updated the e-book “Tax Investigation for Dummies...” and I think it's very good and factually accurate. 

I’m offering £10 – cash to the first reader who can spot a factual error in the book. 

The book normally costs £10 but for the next 48 hours it’s going to be available free, you can see it and get a copy at this address

Good luck. 


PS It's just been pointed out to me that a date is out by a year on page five - so that mistake has gone!

  1. why is Ken's name duplicated twice on page 3? (under praise)

    Cuz he's just that damn good! :P

  3. PS avoid people who style themselves as 'tax advisers' like the plague.

    Most of them are the equivalent of the kind of people who ask you to send the car you are selling to some country on the east of the African continent in return for some over-inflated promised funds when the car is received.

    Do I detect another lackey? Get back to your whiteboard and enjoy the pain...

    Nick Morgan agrees with me in his book.

    I'm not a whiteboard lackey but neither do I agree with the con tactics applied by some 'agents'.

    I suspect you're one of them.

  6. Oh and apparently Taxassist accountants agree with me as well.
