Steve Coleman's articles, originally published in The Ringing World, are full of useful advice to ringers on money and taxation issues. All ringers can benefit from browsing them: they are essential reading for tower and association treasurers and anyone involved in fund-raising. There are ten articles in the series at present which can be selected below.

Please note: These articles were correct at the date of publication, however there may have been subsequent changes to legislation. You are advised to seek up-to-date information from the relevant authorities.

Steve is happy to answer any other Ringing and Money questions. Email him at
