January? The best time of year to call TaxCalc Support?

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.

Support Hours

Christmas is approaching, so it’s time to inform our customers of our opening hours throughout the holiday period.

As usual, we’ll be keeping a support service running during this time because we appreciate that some limited companies accounts and tax returns need to be submitted by 31 December. And, as usual, we'll be extending our January support hours to help our customers at this busy time.

  • Christmas opening hours - we will be providing email support on 29, 30 and 31 December between 9am and 5:30pm.
  • January opening hours – our extended support hours during this month are:

o    Monday – Friday: 9:30am and 8pm

o    Saturdays: 10am and 4pm (commencing 9 January)

o    Sunday 31: 10am and 4pm

Emails will also be monitored during the evening of 31 January.

We wish you a Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year!
