  • Make sure you refer to the ‘Related Questions’ section when you type your question or search query in order to make sure whether the topic is already discussed.
  • Agree to differ. We are all here to add and share our knowledge on taxes and in doing so we may not agree with each other and this should be done in the right spirit.

It is expected that each member of the Forum communicates positively and constructively. Any member using abusive language will be banned from the Forum permanently.
  • Do not post comments like ‘Thank you’, ‘I agree’ or ‘Useful Information’. Instead use the Helpful icon in order to let the user/expert know that you like their post.
