- Version 2018.1 incorporates tax and other changes made for the financial year 2017-18. All calculators and tables have been updated and modified where appropriate.
- We have new material: Leading Citations, a nutshell accompaniment to Leading Cases, which succinctly sets out the basic principles which have emerged in the 16 years since White.
- The life expectancy table used as the basis of the Duxbury calculator continues to be ONS14, for the reasons set out within that module. As in the last 8 years, the calculator again contains a short-term 'quantitative easing' adjustment to the assumptions to reflect continuing constraints in financial markets. The rationale for this is also described on the Information screen in the Duxbury Calculations module.
- New Car Data no longer appears – the editors felt the amount of up-to-date and readily accessible price data available has rendered it redundant.
