The multi award-winning franchisor, TaxAssist Accountants has appointed TaxCalc as its new software partner.
TaxCalc will provide TaxAssist’s 200+ franchised accountancy firms with a wide portfolio of products, including final accounts production, tax, practice management and Company Secretarial packages, running on its CloudConnect platform. Following an extensive pilot, a phased six-month migration of network members is now underway.

The company has over 8,000 accountancy practices, plus more than 40,000 individual taxpayers, limited companies and partnerships as customers. Recently TaxCalc won three major Software Excellence awards for Best Tax, Best Accounts Production and Best Practice Suite.
TaxCalc owner and CEO, Tracy Ebdon-Poole, said “We’re absolutely delighted to partner with TaxAssist Accountants on one of the most exciting projects in our thirteen year history. Over the past months, we’ve worked closely with TaxAssist’s Head Office and a number of practices to trial our software. The experience has been incredibly productive and given us a chance to really understand one another.”
“Commercially there’s a real product fit, but I’m also happy to say that on another level, we just seem to click, sharing similar values, an entrepreneurial spirit and an unswerving customer focus. I’d like to thank both sides for the commitment that’s resulted in this announcement. Now the hard work really starts!”
