News and events from TaxCalc
Meet the TaxCalc team at Accountex 2017 on May 10 and 11, we’ll be showcasing our innovative solutions for MTD, plus two new Company Secretarial products and a number of other product upgrades.
Sounds unlikely? Surely most firms expect to wait a little longer for support from their software suppliers in the run up to the return filing deadline? True, but I’m pleased to say things are different for TaxCalc customers.
Maintaining excellence in Customer Support is as important to us as every other aspect of our business offering. Other providers might identify Support as an easy target for cost-savings. We, on the other hand, invest heavily in our Support team to provide a prompt, and technically-superior service to our customers. For instance, we place great emphasis on answering our Support Line in seconds rather than minutes. I’m exceptionally proud to tell you that our team achieved an average of only 22 seconds to answer our customers during January. Those of you who’ve had the ‘pleasure’ of waiting for 20 minutes and more for other providers to handle your query in the past will appreciate the speediness of this level of response.

Recently Tracy has contributed insights and features to a number of business publications. Here Tracy discusses the importance of integrating innovation into our corporate culture.Read more
I joined TaxCalc last year. Having come from a different software house it was a breath of fresh air to see the positive way tasks are collaboratively approached here. It’s evident that everyone is passionate about the work they do for our customers. My background is implementing software into new practices and reviewing existing setups to ensure the software is used efficiently as early as possible.Read more
These days, practices expect their tax and accounting software to enable them to operate freely in the same way that many other cloud-based applications would allow. But for users of certain solutions, the experience of processing tax and accounts remotely has fallen far short of expectations. Losing data when internet connections fail; poor security and back-up; incompatibility between desktop and cloud software; issues with iXBRL tagging – these are just some of the issues raised and reported in the accounting press.
FOUR SMALL CHANGES. ONE BIG DIFFERENCE TO YOUR WELL-BEING

Every month brings us closer to the launch of Making Tax Digital. Even though the official launch date (or even year for that matter) is yet to be confirmed, you can rest assured that here at TaxCalc we’re actively engaged in developing solutions that will make the transition to MTD as hassle-free as possible. We’ve even reframed our go-to-market position as the Digital Tax People to emphasise our focus and commitment to making MTD work for businesses and accountancy practices.
Looking after our customers is at the heart of what we do at TaxCalc. Our award-winning support is just one of the things that sets us apart from our competitors. Here we meet Melissa Field, Customer Support Manager, who heads up the team that makes it happen.Read more
