New 2018/19 edition now out
The new 2018/19 edition of the book is now out.
The update of the online text to the text of the 2018/19 edition of the book is virtually complete.
There is a special arrangement for holders of licences for the 2017/18 edition. The useful life of the 2017 licence was cut short, because the new Finance Bill timetable brought this year's Finance Bill forward from July to March. Accordingly holders of 2017/18 licences qualify for a discount when purchasing licences for the 2018/19 edition of TFD online. The discount is 50% of the cost of the 2017/18 licences.
Once the updating to 2018/19 online edition is complete, holders of old (2017/18) licences will still have online access to the 2017/18 text of TFD, until the end of August. But they will not have access to the 2018/19 edition. For that you will need a new 2018/19 licence.

There are archive editions for years since 2003/04. These will occasionally be useful to investigate the tax position in earlier years, but the current edition will generally be the best starting point, as that has been written in the light of current HMRC guidance, and further thought and research.
