Differences FA2020 Personal Tax / Business Tax

AccountsNQ Registered, AAT Student Posts: 4

I wanted to know what are the main differences in the books between FA19 and FA20? Are they mainly the rates/allowances etc.

Also, if I was to buy the FA20 books now, will the exams change if FA21 was announced in throughout the year?

Or do exams change the following year, don't want to buy the books now and they change, I am looking to sit Personal Tax this summer.

    If you buy the most current book it will be valid to at least January next year. The tax exams effectively happen a year behind the current situation so any announcements for FA21 won't be examined until next year.
