Frequently asked questionsThe questions below provide immediate answers to many aspects of TaxCalc Individual.
If you have any further questions, please call 0345 5190 882 or email email@example.com
Does TaxCalc work on
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 10.7 or higher.
Does TaxCalc work on Linux
Yes. TaxCalc will run on any 64 bit kernal 3.2(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 2016-17 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I buy previous years' returns?
Yes. We supply tax software dating back to the 2007-08 tax year. You can find this on the Versions and Prices page.
