Tolley's Yellow Tax handbook ATT help

NewbieNewbie Well-KnownRegistered Posts: 229
I want to study the ATT next yr, however I have a set of the Tolleys books at work and I cant understand how to navigate how you find anything, I understand the importance of these manuals but I feel I am missing something as I frantically search from page to page.

    If you're using an ATT study plan, it will help you use the legislation. However, before you get there:

    Step 1: Find the one with the Index at the back. Not all of the Yellow have it, just one or two.

    Step 2: Think of what heading your chosen topic would be classified under and look it up in the Index.

    Step 3: Navigate to that Act in the relevant Yellow book (they are in Date order, mostly, so TMA1970 will be in book 1A; CTA2010 will be in book 1c or 2) and look up the right section.

    Step 4: voila! The relevant legislation on that subject, in pure law form. Read the legalese and digest the complexity of the English language as it relates to taxes.

    Step 5: Rinse and repeat until you get the hang of it!

    Nose deep in Yellow and Orange books, Monsoon still finished her last two tax exams early. And passed. :p
