Taxfiler - bringing forward balances issue

Taxfiler has started to do some strange things.

Didn't find your answer?

We've used TF for approaching 5 years or so I'd say. Always been happy (recent price rise aside) but this year some very strange things are happening.

Briefly:

POA from previous year not being included in the Status page for 2019

Brought forward balance on capital allowance pool different to 2018 carried forward figure

Random "losses b/f" figures in the 2019 SE pages when there are no losses from previous years.

Each causing a big headache.

Has anyone else come across anything similar? I've spoken to their support but they haven't been great at tracking down the issues.

Thanks,

This is exactly why I work out the liabilities on paper before I enter the data on to the return.

It's so that I know the right answer before the software tells me what it thinks is the right answer.

Just a thought - did you roll forward last year's tax returns into 18/19 (one at a time, or using the bulk facility) before the 17/18 figures were finalised?
I've not come across the issues that you are suggesting, just trying to logically think what *could* cause it..

It did something weird with b/fwd losses to me yesterday. I was creating a 2017/18 return and a 2018/19 return so came to the conclusion that I had done something in the wrong order and just fixed it myself. I doubt the software has a wholesale issue though.

I do find that partnership profit shares do not always flow through to individual returns and sometimes I have to unlink and relink to get it to work.

I'd be interested in any follow-up on this - did you get to the bottom of it?
