About Our Site

TheTaxGuide was formed to offer a unique reference point on the uk tax system explained in simple terms...

"In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes" - so said Benjamin Franklin, back at the beginning of the 19th Century.

It is certain that we will all have to deal with the tax system at some point in our lives. Given that the taxman takes a sizeable chunk of your pay packet each month, shouldn't you be told exactly how the system works?

This is where TheTaxGuide comes in. We aim to provide a single, comprehensive resource for information on all aspects of the tax system. Whether you want to know how much, when, or how you should be paying, TheTaxGuide is here to help.

We also recognise that many people want to reduce their tax bills. With this in mind, we have compiled a series of guides explaining how you can pay less tax while staying within the rules.

All of the articles on TheTaxGuide are written by experts in their field, so you can be sure that you are getting the best information. It is important to remember, though, that nothing on this website constitutes advice. You should always seek professional assistance before taking any action.

Tax is a perennial bugbear for many people. But with help from TheTaxGuide you can ensure that your tax affairs are conducted without a hitch.

Our concern was that there was no single UK resource for interesting features and practical advice on this subject.

Our features and articles are written by experts - who have experience, or a particular interest in this area.
