TaxCalc for all firms

We recognise that practices in the UK come in all shapes and sizes.
That's why we offer a wide range of Unlimited and smaller pre-built packages to suit your client base.

Whether you opt for your TaxCalc software to be supplied in standalone or server versions,
they both cost the same and come with free, unlimited support.


Suitable for startups and those working on their own:

  • Local database with option to store tax returns in your own file system or cloud storage (e.g. DropBox)*.
  • Designed for a single installation. For multiple standalone machines please contact our team on 0345 5190 883.
  • Available for Windows, Mac, and Linux


* Note that tax returns stored outside of the database will not be included in backups. If you move a tax return file, you will be required to help TaxCalc relocate it.


Suitable for multi-staff offices at one or more locations:

  • Central database to store and coordinate all your practice data in your office.
  • Easy to use installer. One option for the server (which will auto-configure itself to run as a service on your network) and another option for each of the computers on your network.
  • TaxCalc's server software is designed to run over modest, lightweight hardware. You don't even need a dedicated server. In simple setups, you just need to bless one computer on your network with the database and TaxCalc takes care of the rest.
  • TaxCalc's software is optimised to run over VPN, so connecting in from remote locations provides superb performance.
  • Concurrent user model means that you can install software on as many computers as you like.
  • Two concurrent users allowed out of the box with additional users available to buy at just £110 per user.
  • Back up all of your clients' accounts, tax returns and other practice records in one go.

If your practice's circumstances change, we can migrate you from the standalone version to the server version. Please call us on 0345 5190 883 to discuss.

TaxCalc in action

We pride ourselves on delivering high quality and easy to use software. Please click on a screenshot below to see how you use TaxCalc and see how easy it is to complete your tax return.

You can launch TaxCalc Tax Return Production in two ways.

The first is to click on its icon on the Hub Home screen, choose a client and then a tax return period.

Alternatively, you can open a tax return from within TaxCalc Client Hub.

Use TaxCalc Client Hub to monitor progress, set work reminders and keep on track of your workload.

TaxCalc contains two modes of entry. SimpleStep is our unique questionnaire mode, which guides you through the return, asking questions based upon answers given and data entered.


HMRC Forms mode displays a facsimile form for fast direct entry.

When you get to the end of your return, Check and Finish validates the entries you've made and highlights any potential issues before you file.

TaxCalc files your client's return online and tells you when it has been successfully received by HMRC.

Frequently asked questions

Below you'll find answers to questions you may have about Tax Return Production.
If you'd like to know more, please call us on 0345 5190 883 or email

How do I setup TaxCalc for my firm?

We offer three deployment options to suit different situations. For multi-users working in the same office, our network version allows you to install TaxCalc to a server and connect workstations to the central database. For single users, our standalone version offers a simple installation process for a single computer – all data is stored locally. The first time you install TaxCalc, you will be asked which version you would like to install.

Alternatively for those wishing to work anywhere, we have CloudConnect which allows you to download TaxCalc to any computer and access your data via the Internet. Perfect for firms who need staff to access from the office or from home/client’s premises.

How many computers can I install TaxCalc Tax Return Production onto?

TaxCalc Tax Return Production may be installed on a single computer if you have chosen to use the standalone version. For network and cloud customers, there is no limit, although the number of concurrent users will be limited by the licence you purchased.

Can I upgrade or add additional returns?

Yes. You can start off working with one version of TaxCalc Tax Return Production and later upgrade or buy a version that provides additional returns. We will provide you with a credit for any unused portion of your annual licence.

If you cannot find the product you are looking for, please call us on 0345 5190 883 or email

Is Tax Return Production ready for MTD for income tax?

We are currently developing our MTD for Income Tax solution to ensure that our users can comply with the requirements of the new service. This will include quarterly filing for self-employed businesses.

Can I buy previous years' returns?

All TaxCalc Tax Return Production products create tax returns for tax years from 2011-12. We have a range of standalone products for tax years prior to this. Please call us on 0345 5190 883 or email to discuss your requirements.

How many users can use Tax Return Production?

If you are using a networked or Cloud version of TaxCalc you can have multiple users accessing the software at the same time. All unlimited versions of our products come with 2 concurrent users as standard. If you need to increase the number of users permitted to access a module at any one time you can simply purchase additional concurrent users.

Can I submit amended Tax Returns?

Yes, on submission, you can specify whether the Tax Return is an amended version.

Will I need to reinstall if I upgrade?

We make it easy for you. All you need to do is pay for your upgrade and restart TaxCalc on your computer. Your software will be updated automatically.
