"I joined the site after reading an offshore tax guide and was certainly not disappointed. The practical and 'to the point' tax planning has already saved me a considerable sum. I'd recommend this website to anyone."
Jerry Brown, Edinburgh

"From my experience, the advice offered by the team at WPR is second to none and compliments what is normally provided by a high street accountant and offers members quality analysis and advice on complicated tax situations both on and offshore.

I regularly receive a blank look and "I don't know about that" with regard to more imaginative questions and a visit to this site helps me move on. thank you."
Peter Jones, Germany

"I've saved £5,659 in CGT by using this site to double check my accountants advice. My wife has also identified further income tax savings of over £2,000 as result of the property tax articles. In our case it's well worth the £10 membership fee."
Derek Bailey, Birmingham

I must thank you for the most informative reply to my enquiry. It is so extensive, I intend setting an evening aside to absorb it all.

Again, thank you for a most useful website.

"Well written reports that are clear and insightful. I look forward to reading them every week!
Natasha Foude, France
