Butterworths puts 'Tax Service' on CD-ROM

Legal publishers Butterworths has launched the latest version of Simon's 'Direct Tax Service' in both CD-ROM format and in book form.

The electronic version is part of the publisher's 'books on screen' series, and replicates the format of the printed volumes.

One disk contains the 11 volumes in the set covering income tax, corporation tax, capital gains tax and inheritance tax, as well as other volumes in Butterworths' tax series.

The system allows instant searches and cross-referencing and the addition of tabs and 'electronically-generated sticky notes' in the text. Several volumes can be displayed on the screen at one time.

The CD-ROM is updated on a monthly basis.
