Personal tax (income tax and capital gains tax) is arguably the most understood of all of the taxes, as most of the population pay it in a very visible way. Since the introduction of self assessment, the self employed, the employed, investors and trusts all need to understand the new rules, to minimise their overall tax exposure.
