TAx Return Preparation Software - Whats best?

jryorkshirejryorkshire New MemberRegistered Posts: 5
Hello All

I have my own accounting and taxation business in New Zealand. We currently prepare UK tax returns (manually) for a few of our clients, but this year we are going to actively promote the service so should pick up a few more. I am therefore looking at UK tax return preparation software just for individuals (no partnerships, companies, trusts), but which to choose? :confused1:

It's unlikely we will prepare more than say 50 in total and the majority will need to included non-residents pages. Any suggestions as to which software to review would be welcome.

Thanks John

    Hi John
    I use Tax Calc which I have never had any problems with. Simple to use and one of the less expensive options.
    There are others like PTP and Drummhor which other MIP's would recommend as well.

    Thanks Sharon :thumbup:

    I will take a look at Tax Calc and the others you mention. It's always good to get the opinion of the users rather than the providers !

    Firstly thanks to those who have given suggestions it is much appreciated.

    I wonder... has anyone used both Tax Calc and PTP and if so which do they consider best and why?
