Feedback from our website users

"I was really struggling to find any guidance from the gov.uk website on filling in the starter checklist when moving from self-employed to employed. Your article gave me a direct, straightforward answer to my query… and put my mind at ease. Thanks so much for the information you provide and the way in which you provide it. "

"I found your basic article on ‘what tax rates apply to me’ very useful. So refreshing to find accessible, readable copy on tax matters in place of the usual dense copy provided by HMRC and professional sources. I will use your site again. "
