Introducing our award-winning
Accounts Production software

TaxCalc Accounts Production caters for Sole Trader and Partnership accounts and features a wide variety of formats for your Limited Liability Partnership and Limited Company clients.

Utilising a simple and straightforward workflow, backed up by innovative SimpleStep and Check & Finish processes, accounts are prepared quickly and efficiently.

The software is powerful too and boasts features
often found on very expensive high-end systems. Our approach to iXBRL means absolutely no manual tagging and limited company accounts can be filed directly to Companies House online.


Unbeatable value

TaxCalc Accounts Production is sold on an annual licence basis.

It is available in three sizes, to suit the size of your practice:

  • Unlimited clients £499 + VAT
  • Up to 50 clients £249 + VAT
  • Up to 12 clients £99 + VAT

Additional users are charged on a concurrent usage basis at just £80 plus VAT.

Integration by default

All of TaxCalc's software products are built on a single platform. With one application and one database, you'll find integration and data sharing at the heart of our software suite.

For example, client details entered into TaxCalc Client Hub are automatically populated in the financial statements. Similarly, financial statements can be exported into tax returns, kept up to date as changes occur and, for Corporation Tax, long periods of account can even be split over more than one CT600 return.

Integrated, scalable solution

All of TaxCalc's software products are designed to scale and grow with your firm. You can buy a licence to cater for a smaller number of clients and then upgrade as your portfolio increases.

Our software is available with a no-cost server option, providing great benefits of centralised data storage and management.

Finally, our software features TaxCalc Client Hub, which is a suite of powerful practice management tools that includes work tracking.

HMRC's iXBRL checks.

been designed from the ground up to
handle iXBRL for you.

Financial statements produced by
our software are fully tagged,

can be shared among clients and kept
up to date as your clients' charts of
accounts evolve.

Integration with the
TaxCalc suite

The TaxCalc suite of products form
part of one giant, fully integrated
application that shares data seamlessly
between functions.

TaxCalc Accounts Production sources
your core client data from TaxCalc
Client Hub and exports results into
TaxCalc Tax Return Production.

an annual licence basis, providing you
with access to your chosen clients'
financial statements for twelve months.

Should your licence expire, the software
will go into read-only mode, allowing
you continued access to your data.

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)*.

  • 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.
