TaxCalc

Pricing not displayed

Didn't find your answer?

The software suite TaxCalc looks interesting, but:

  • I displike having to 'sign up for a free trial' before being aware of the costs involved 
    • Searching AccountingWEB finds articles like this one in 'Industry Insights' BUT no prices merely a claim that

      "The top five reasons firms tell us why they switched to TaxCalc:

      "Clear pricing and exceptional value.

      "Independently owned – we’re not beholden to faceless investors who pull the strings.

      "UK-based telephone support.

      "Easy to use software – our SimpleStep® and Check and Finish® features mean that most staff are up and running with minimal training.

      "No long-term lock-ins."

    • I have also done a swift online search to no avail

So I was wondering if anyone can assist - even if you can point me to somewhere I've missed?

This year I paid £233 for 30 tax returns (or less).
In 2021 I paid £410 for unlimited individual & partnership tax returns.
Hope this is useful!

TaxCalc is amongst the most transparent for pricing. Costs are easy to find e.g.
Tax:-
https://www.taxcalc.com/tax#Versions
Accounts production:-
https://www.taxcalc.com/accountsProduction#Versions

Go to Products (select) then Versions & Prices.
Add what you are wanting to price up, with the various variants, to the basket to get an overall cost as some modules are incorporated into others.

They are the usual "give us a call to discuss your requirements" = "give our pushy salespeople a call"

Very reasonable pricing, especially compared to the now (reasonably) expensive Taxfiler (never thought I would say that!).

In general what is it like to use - for accounts production and tax?

Used if for about 20 years for SA, not the past 5 but will be returning to it for SA in the new year. Used for 25 years for CT. Used for 1 year for AP. It's excellent. Likely to be adding one or two further modules as well. Had to do an AP job on IRIS yesterday (used for 35+ years), was really laborious to go back to IRIS. TaxCalc much more intuitive, easier to use and about 20 times faster.

The accounts production is very extensive (e.g. lots of different nominals) but for a better combo, VT accounts and Taxcalc for returns won't be much more than Taxfiler (now Iris Elements Accounts and Tax) soon will be!

I agree with Taxcalc and VT as a great combo. I haven't used TC for acs production, but VT is very good for bookkeeping before you get to the acs themselves.

I use VT and Top Up for many years in one office, which I like very much.

However, I also now work in another office which uses TaxCalc. I haven't had hardly any training on it but have managed to pick it up pretty quickly and like it.
I prefer Top Up for the simplicity but Tax Calc has some nice features on it.
The accounts production I like too. It's not as flexible as VT but again has a nice feel to it and fairly easy to work.

I've used Taxcalc for my own and family company accounts and tax, family and client SA returns and one MTD VAT return for many years. SA returns pretty much since Taxcalc launched. I've also used a variety of other software (Iris, BTC, PTP) when working for other firms but none of them have tempted me to give up using Taxcalc.
The product works, pricing is straightforward and and the various modules sit neatly on a common Home Page.

Following the post as looking to switch from Taxfiler to TaxCalc and have more integrated system. Seems that TaxCalc offers good value for money.

We've gone from Iris to TaxCalc for Accounts Production.
We're going from BTC to TaxCalc for SA.
