by

TaxCalc completed a prestigious software awards double, adding the tax preparation gong to its accounts production win.

In one of the most competitive categories of the AccountingWEB Software Awards, TaxCalc repeated its 2020 triumph to make it three wins in five years in the tax software category.

A handful of ballots separated the Wokingham-based firm from its closest rival FreeAgent, with both vendors receiving a healthy share of user appreciation for their efforts.

The tax preparation software market remains a tough environment for developments, with vendors forced to monitor the continually shifting compliance landscape while maintaining high levels of customer service and product development.

Compared to other categories, recent results in the tax software awards point to it as a bastion of stability in a turbulent world. However, the promise of a digital taxation shake-up and new products coming to market means that regular winners such as TaxCalc and BTC Software may need to keep on their toes to continue their run of success.
