Best professional tax software | Software Awards 2020 shortlist


The Professional Tax Software category in the Software Awards for Accounting Excellence 2020 was once again a fierce fight.

9th Nov 2020

The top tax software products used by UK accountants are one of the few pockets of stability in an otherwise chaotic year. All of this year’s finalists were also shortlisted in 2019:

  • BTCSoftware

  • GoSimpleTax

  • TaxCalc

  • Taxfiler

It promises to be another nail-biting finale when the winner is announced on Monday, 30 November 2020. Last year,  the customer ratings for GoSimpleTax and BTCSoftware finished in a dead heat, the developers were both given 2019 awards.

There was a big turnout from the tax community this year, so we’ll have to wait and see whether perennial contender TaxCalc has broken the deadlock, or whether a big popular vote for Taxfiler turns the tide on the incumbents.
