Reference – Tolley launches tax website

Butterworths Tolley, the taxation publisher, this week announced the availability of a complete range of reference materials on the Internet.

Called Tax Direct, the Web-based service costs £1,200 for a single user or £245 for existing subscribers to paper and CD-ROM tax information from Simon’s and De Voil.

The online service packages all the company’s reference sources with daily news updates drawn from Inland Revenue and Customs & Excises press releases and tribunal and court transcripts. Subscribers also get copies on paper and CD-ROM.

Steve Savory, Internet publisher of Tolley Tax and Accounting, said the prototype service has been running since the beginning of the year and has already been adopted by one of the Big Five tax practices. Tax Direct officially went live yesterday and will now be marketed at mid-tier firms.

‘We’ve taken over a year to develop the service,’ said Savory. ‘We didn’t want to just put something on the Internet for the sake of it.’
