Are you an accountant?

Any unused iXBRL conversion credits can be offset against the purchase of TaxCalc Accounts Production.

Non-accountant customers

For all other customers, if you have remaining credits on your account, you can offset these against your future TaxCalc software purchases. If you have any questions regarding this announcement, please contact our sales team on 0345 5190 883 or email us at

We pride ourselves on delivering high quality and easy to use software. Please click on a screenshot below to

You access TaxCalc iXBRL Conversion Service from within the TaxCalc website.

The TaxCalc website is where you will find the latest version of the iXBRL template.


Fill in the template with the full accounts for submission to HMRC.

Any lines that you don't need are simply hidden, rather than deleted.

The Microsoft Excel file is uploaded to our site for conversion.

Any issues during conversion are brought to your attention.

Conversion results are stored for fourteen days before being deleted from your history.

The iXBRL file can then be attached to your Corporation Tax return (TaxCalc CT Unlimited shown for illustration).
