TaxCalc Dividend Database (2023-24 year)

Make the entry of dividend data a snap with this database of FTSE 350 and AIM 100 listed dividend data for the 2023-24 tax year. Bring forward your shareholdings from your 2022-23 tax return and TaxCalc Dividend Database will do the rest.

The database is released in June each year to include dividends paid up to the end of the previous tax year.


TaxCalc What If? Planner

Use your 2023-24 tax return data to project your tax liability for the 2024-25 tax year. You can also create scenarios, adjusting your levels of income or to see the effects of decisions being made now on next year's tax bill.

The add-on is released in June each year to include changes announced for the next tax year.

see how you use TaxCalc and see how easy it is to complete your tax return.

TaxCalc organises and provides access to tax returns for the 2023-24 back to 2017-18 tax years*.

TaxCalc manages the production and progress of your tax returns, together with additional supporting forms.

TaxCalc contains two modes of entry. SimpleStep is our unique questionnaire mode, which guides you through the return, asking questions based upon answers given and data entered.

HMRC Forms mode displays a facsimile form for fast direct entry.

When you get to the end of your return, Check and Finish validates the entries you've made and highlights any potential issues before you file.

TaxCalc files online and tells you when your return has been successfully received by HMRC.

*TaxCalc is sold according to tax years, each of which is bought separately. Please see our Versions and Prices for more info.

Frequently asked questions

The questions below provide immediate answers to many aspects of TaxCalc Individual.
If you have any further questions, please call 0345 5190 882 or email

What are the requirements
for filing online with TaxCalc?

In order to file any return online to HMRC, you must have a Unique Tax Reference (UTR) issued by HMRC along with a government gateway user ID and password.

Does TaxCalc work on
Windows 10?

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 10. For a full compatibility list please see the System Requirements for TaxCalc.

Does TaxCalc work on Apple Macs?

Yes. TaxCalc will run on any 64-bit Macintosh running Mac OS 10.12 or higher.

Does TaxCalc work on Linux

Yes. TaxCalc will run on any 64 bit kernal 3.10 (or higher), Debian (e.g. Ubuntu) or Redhat based distributions.

Do I have to buy the software every year?

TaxCalc is an annual purchase because we have to redevelop it each year to new rates and tax rules. Your licence is perpetual and will continue to provide future access to unused returns for purchased tax years.

Since TaxCalc is an all-in-one application, when you buy next year's licence, all you need to do is open TaxCalc and it will update itself to add in the 2023-24 forms.

Can I share licences with friends or family if I purchase a personal product?

It is not possible to share/transfer licences to friends or family as this is solely for the use of the licence holder to complete all six returns. Any shared licences would be a breach of contract under our End User Licence Agreement (EULA) and could result in termination of contract.

Can I upgrade or add additional returns?

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 0345 5190 883 or email

Can I buy previous years' returns?

Yes. We supply tax software dating back to the 2017-18 tax year. You can find this on the Versions and Prices page.
