Browsing for information

Rather than searching for a term or a company within a particular module, you can choose to browse through the topics available for that particular module. As you continue to browse through different subtopics, notice that just under the module tabs, is a navigation path allowing you to always know where you are within Tolley®Guidance. You can use this path to return back to the previous subtopic, or the module itself.


If you are browsing the Personal Tax module, once you have accessed a guidance document, you might see a navigation path (or breadcrumb trail) that looks something like this:

  • Personal Tax > Other supplementary pages | Emplyoment > Fuel for company cars and vans.

You can click on the blue text to return to that specific link.

Browsing for information by topic

Each module is divided into a number of topics. On the left-hand side of a module there is a Browse Topics pod displaying the list of topics associated with the current module. Typically, a list of one or more subtopics is displayed which further categorises the topic.

Example:The Corporate Tax module is divided into topics such as Tax accounting and audit services, Tax planning and advice, Property tax, and so on. The Tax planning and advice topic is further divided into subtopics such as Obtaining finance, Operating structures, Loss planning, etc.

After you click on a subtopic in the Browse Topics pod, your Tolley®Guidance view changes. The topics found in the Browse Topics pod are now displayed in a vertical list on the left-hand side of the pane, while the list of documents available for the selected subtopic are displayed on the right-hand side of the pane. The documents are categorised by content types such as overviews, documents, rules, and so on. To access practical guidance or worked examples, click on the corresponding tab. The following options are available:

  • Guidance
  • Examples
  • Templates
  • HMRC
  • Legislation
  • Videos
  • News

Some subtopics may not contain all of these options, in that case, the tab is not available.
