Chips and Gravy
So, now you may be wondering why anyone at TaxCalc would be writing a post about chips and gravy.
Well, we ask our customers if they have a couple of minutes to complete a survey after any remote
We continually review the results and the comments received from these surveys and would like to thank everyone who left the fantastic comments we received throughout January 2016. However, it seems that we just weren’t specific enough for one customer when we asked for additional comments. They took the opportunity to tell us that they like chips and gravy! ...

It has been a busy twelve months at TaxCalc, not least within the creative department. Growth in all areas of the company had highlighted the urgent requirement for a new on-line presence. As Creative Projects Manager, I was charged with evolving the previous TaxCalc e-commerce site into the contemporary web solution that exists today.
