Small and Expanding Businesses: Getting the Tax Right is an accessible guide to the tax issues typically encountered by small and expanding businesses in Ireland, it examines in detail the tax implications of a variety of business decisions. The book focuses on four main areas: payroll taxes; VAT; income tax on business profits earned by a sole trade or partnership; and corporation tax on business profits earned by companies, as these are the taxes that affect most Irish businesses. Three case studies are also included and developed throughout to illustrate and explain the tax issues with worked examples.

“This unique book brilliantly fills a niche and will be invaluable to all start-up and expanding small businesses. The author has skilfully managed to bridge a gap between the basic tax information available from Revenue and the detailed advice available from the tax specialist. It is an ideal reference book that should be on hand in the office of every budding entrepreneur in Ireland.”
Simon Pratt, CEO Avoca
