Pros: Each year gets clearer and easier, for a user who only completes one tax return. However complex the software gets me to the right place and the help desk has always been prompt and solved the problem in one exchange.

I also like the vale for money, but now I am moved into a simpler regime and may not even need to complete the return, this could be my last year. But I'll continue to encourage my wife to use the software - money well spent for ease of use and peace of mind.

Cons: Sometimes the location of information appearing on the visualisation forms at the end is not input until later in the process - as if you are ready to submit. But again, readily explained by the help desk

Pros: Easy to fill in and leads you into covering all areas such as including associated expenses,. It uses last year's return as aa base, making it much easier to ensure I've covered everything in the same way.

Cons: Handling proportions on holiday lettings where there is also personal use was not intuitive.

Overall: It has significantly speeded up my tax return submission.

A bit confusing to use but does the job.

Pros: It fills in all the forms and sends them to the Inland Revenue. Not expensive either. Takes the stress out of doing your tax return online.

Cons: Never quote sure if I have filled in the right boxes. Would appreciate better notes for Anglican ministers

Pros: Clear structure to the forms and populated the information well onto the HMRC forms

Suggestions about possible missed expenses

Cons: When I selected the SA100 form I wasn't automatically offered the charitable giving section and it wasn't obvious how to find that.

It wasn't clear whether I should include my clergy stipend on an employment sheet or on the minister of religion form.

It would have been helpful to have 'hover over' explanation notes to describe what should go in each box.

Pros: User friendly and good presentation, also hints from what written on previous years form. Very colourful with good prompts.

Cons: Not knowing how to find explanatory notes. Also feel that re Expenses questions it should say "paid to you" or "paid by you" on Minister of Religion Forms

It does what the label on the tin says it will do!

Pros: It is just so easy to use. Takes all the hassle out of filling in a form and doing calculations etc. Once you get familiar with it, it is just SIMPLE.

Cons: The fear about pressing Validate Return!

Overall: I had a few glitches to begin with, but that was because I was in too big a hurry. I failed to pick up the 'transfer of allowance' bit, and I really think the package should be remodelled to have a note about that, before you go to the 'Validate my Return' bit. I think the Validate Return should perhaps have a note saying that after you enter this section you will still have an opportunity to make changes.

One of the better tax return products

Pros: This program makes filing simple and painless- you input basic information and the hard work is done for you

Cons: The cost is somewhat high; also, due to its localization, obtaining live support can be tricky on occasion depending on time of day

Overall: It enabled me to file my taxes simply and painlessly in a very short time.

Pros: The software is intuitive and proved very easy to navigate.

Cons: I did not find anything that had a problem with.

Overall: In the past I have used a Tax Advisor to submit my Tax Return as a Minister of Religion. However I thought I'd give this a go. The most time consuming part is getting together the required info, but I would have had to do this for the Tax Advisor anyway! the software is intuitive and I found the whole process refreshingly simple. I saved a lot of money too!

Pros: User friendly software, particularly the mobile app. Includes plenty of helpful information to guide you through the process.

Cons: No issues so far with the mobile app however the mobile app seems to be more user friendly and easier to use than the web app.
