Yes. TaxCalc's software has been fully tested with Microsoft's latest operating system and we can confirm that it does indeed work with Microsoft Windows 8.1.

Does TaxCalc work on Apple Macs?

Yes. TaxCalc will run on any 64-bit Macintosh running Mac OS 10.6 or higher.

Do I have to buy the software every year?

Yes. TaxCalc operates a full self-service website and you can easily upgrade your licence of TaxCalc Individual to another product that provides for additional tax returns.

To add an SA800 Partnership tax return, please visit our TaxCalc Partnership pages.

To add a CT600 Corporation Tax return, please visit our TaxCalc Limited Company pages.

If you cannot find the product you are looking for, please call us on 0845 7590 882 or email
