Excellent Support
Following my recent completion of this course, I just wanted to write and thank Ideal Schools and my tutors George and Eszter for supporting and encouraging me through this complex subject. The course material as always is clear, concise and easy to follow. However especially with this subject additional learning is required with the main task being to navigate your way around the mind field of the HMRC website! Once again Ideal Schools surpass themselves with their asset of Eszter, she always goes above and beyond to ensure you have all the required knowledge and understanding of each and every subject matter. Her passion to help others comes across 10 fold and I for one could feel myself growing with confidence under her guidance. Ideal Schools makes your learning journey a pleasure and never a chore. Thank you to you all.

Self Assessment Tax - Course Review
I recently passed this exam thanks to a combination of factors including: Ideal Schools Tutors Course Material General advice and guidance The tutor assigned to me was Eszter and her knowledge of the subject matter appears to be at a level way above my expectations. She seems to know everything. Her detailed responses on assignments and general questions are extremely prompt, detailed and helpful. Having Eszter behind you should allow you the confidence to succeed. Finally, as with other Ideal Schools tutors you are treated as an individual and not a number. As for the course material it takes you through the key topics and supplemented by well thought out assignments. It is not practical to develop a full course on every aspect and a key part of the course is learning how to find the information. Once again Eszter shines at this and has developed what she calls "The art of search". Since I took the course a couple of months ago a workbook with many questions and examples has been produced and is an excellent addition to the course material. Finally, the importance of this course cannot be underestimated. I now have 8 clients and ALL end with SAT. If I was unable to offer this service I would still be looking for clients.

Thank you

Just a quick e-mail to say thank you to everyone at Ideal Schools for all your help and support in my studies toward the ICB qualifications. I am pleased to advise you that I recently found out that I passed the Level 3 Diploma in Self Assessment first time with a 100% and also achieved the same score for Level 3 Computerised Bookkeeping just over a month ago. As you can imagine, I am very happy with these results as they are the perfect end to my studies with you.


I would like to finish by once again thanking you and your colleagues and to wish you all the best.


Kind regards,


Margaret Janicka.

Diploma in Self Assessment Completion
A well-documented and easy to understand course, with all necessary information required to complete the ICB Diploma (supported by additional material found on the HMRC website). The assignments were very useful in presenting potential real-life situations. I knew very little about tax before I did this course, and the course materials provide very useful reference tools now I'm doing Self Assessments for real! Thanks Ideal Schools!
