File your clients' VAT returns and EC sales lists
quickly and easily with our award-winning software

Fast and efficient software

Designed for firms that prepare VAT returns for clients but wish to avoid the encumbrance of the Government Gateway, TaxCalc VAT Filer will quickly and efficiently file VAT100 and EC sales lists online.

Our software can save you considerable time when compared to the Government Gateway by conveniently storing your firm's submission credentials.

Three sizes fit all

We know that firms come in all sizes and that some (but not all) bookkeeping software can file online. Whatever your volume requirements, there are three sizes of product to meet your needs.

Fast submission of the VAT100

To complete the VAT100, you simply create the month or quarter being filed, fill out the values and click to submit.

The VAT100 report can additionally feature a client sign-off, to provide permission for submission.

EC sales lists

Submitting EC sales lists is a breeze. VAT numbers are validated as you enter them to ensure successful submission.

To assist with bulk submission of EC sales list data, you can import structure data from your bookkeeping software into TaxCalc.

Additional forms included

Save time hunting on gov.uk for PDF forms by creating and printing other VAT forms for clients.

VAT 7 – Application to cancel your VAT registration

VAT 68 – Request for transfer of a registration number

VAT 484 – Change of details – Variations

Frequently asked questions

The questions below provide immediate answers to many aspects of TaxCalc VAT Filer.
If you have any further questions, please call 0345 5190 882 or email sales@taxcalc.com

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 10.10 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.

Will you release a server
version for Apple Macs?

We will wait to gauge the popularity of the standalone version before deciding whether there is enough support to embark upon creating a server version. Again, please email our support team at support@taxcalc.com to register your interest.

Do I have to buy the
software every year?

TaxCalc is an annual purchase. We release a series of updates during the course of your licence.

Can I file under the
VAT MOSS rules?

We would love to be able to file VAT MOSS forms but unfortunately, HMRC have not provided an interface for software developers to be able to do this.

Can I move from the
standalone version to the
server version?

Yes. Whilst you can do this yourself, we also offer a migration service, charged based on the complexity of your standalone deployment (for example, to merge many standalone databases).

How many computers can I
install TaxCalc VAT Filer onto?

For your convenience, TaxCalc VAT Filer may be installed on up to two computers if you have chosen to use the standalone version. For network and cloud customers, there is no limit, although the number of concurrent users will be limited by the licence you purchased.
