Small and Expanding Businesses: Getting the Tax Right is an accessible, jargon-free guide to the tax issues typically encountered by small and expanding businesses in Ireland, this new book examines the tax implications of a variety of business decisions. It 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.
