Free access to Bloomsbury Tax Library via ICAEW

How does Bloomsbury compare to CCH / Croner-i, Tolleys etc?

Didn't find your answer?

The ICAEW have now got a contract with Bloomsbury to provide access to their tax library for free (!), it seems.

We have used CCH for years (now Croner-i), and I've also had access to Tolleys for various reasons over time.

Bloomsbury is new to me, has anyone attempted a comparison of Bloomsbury (tax library) to the other providers in terms of content?

Yes, I've been able to get access but it's very difficult to make any meaningful comparison without spending a lot of time. ICAEW sent me a link late last year. It's definitely worth a look. You can just log in with your ICAEW log in details.

Late last year ?

Maybe I was in party mode and missed it.

Right - I'm in.

I must say I'm looking forward to reading the Beer Guidance, Cider Guidance and Wine Guidance sections.

Yes, it looks like a good resource but what I am not clear on is how it compares to our Croner-I tax library. I know that I am being lazy here, I'll just have to delve into the detail and work out the differences I guess! I was hoping that others out there might have done this already and made the decision to either leave or stay with their current provider as a result.

Well, end of November I think. I was probably in full humbug mode at the time
