Tolley's reduces print size as tax complexity grows

Tolley's struggles to keep tax guide below 10,000 pages; squeezes more words on each page to stop the guide stretching to five volumes

LexisNexis has been forced to squeeze more words onto the pages of its famous
tax handbook to stop the latest edition breaking the whopping 10,000 page
barrier.

The latest Tolley’s Yellow Tax handbook has a page count of 9,866 pages, up
60 pages from last year, and an increase of 4,000 pages on the 2001 edition.

The increase in pages reflects the growing complexity of the tax system, said
Taxation editor Mike Truman.

‘Even when the Government attempts to shorten legislation, for example with
the recent anti-avoidance measures, this comes at the expense of pages and pages
of HMRC guidance,’ said Truman.
