TaxCalc Practice Managment Plus what's the catch?

Didn't find your answer?

Currently I use TaxCalc with their included Practice Manager, but was tempted by their Practice Manager Plus. The cost would be £80 a year (we have two main users), which is way cheaper then Accountancy Manager or even Pixie. Whats the catch?

This just seems too cheap, and I feel like I'd be missing out on features.

I'd suggest the best thing to do would be to take a trial or book a demo via www.taxcalc.com. Personally I think its great value with no catch, but I am slightly biased.

I would also be interested in views on this if anyone uses it.
The website is vague on the features of Plus.

I find that currently there is too much manual input in setting things up for managing deadlines and ensuring no clients have been missed from having a task setup.

If anyone using it could comment if at least the reporting is any better with the upgrade so we can see which clients have which tasks activated on a list or something similar.

For £80 a year it simply cannot be a patch on accountancy manager.
If I only had 2 employees, I wouldn't even contemplate trying to save say £600 a year by using what must surely be a far poorer product.
Thats just my opinion.

I tried, and then gave up, they are the best for us small firms' for accounts and tax modules, but they have a long way to go to develop a decent PM module. I am using Digita PM and Tax Calc, happy with the combination.

£80 per year price tag should raise red flags.

I do wonder why they don't want our money?

As a matter of interest, do you essentially maintain 2 client databases? One on Digita and one on TaxCalc?

I am keen on Accountancy Manager but don't want 2 sets of data as I like the tax returns module on TaxCalc.

Sadly, yes, this the problem with whoever will use Tax Calc; otherwise deadlines would be missed.

I looked at Accountancy Manager, an amazing solution but I just didn't have time to take Digita PM to manually enter most of the data to Accountancy manager; if I at my early days, I would go with a comprehensive PM solution such as Accountancy Manager
