Default Software for UK tax return

HMRC sent me to this website to pick some software for filing my return online: https://www.gov.uk/software-tax-returns

Choice is wonderful, but how is a newbie to pick from the list?

Soooo, which do you use and how do you like it? Any recommendations?

Only one I've ever used so can't compare. I find it fairly easy to use altho as i did our ITRs last weekend I thought that perhaps next year might be time to use an accountant. This is not a reflection on the software but rather tax for non-residents has become rather more complicated in the 10 years since we left the UK.

HTH

I've used taxcalc twice and found it easy both times. Good luck

Another vote for Taxcalc - very easy to use and file with this software

I've just gone to do our taxes and found the same problem - plus it wants to do a verification process but there are online technical issues, and no one on the technical help line - really frustrating

Anyway...couple of recommendations for Taxcalc, but I don't see that on the list - is that the Tax Computer Systems one?

No not same thing, Tax Computer Systems looks like a corporate one.

Taxcalc is well known and regarded in the profession, many accountants would use it too. If you want one from the list you Taxfiler is also well regarded.
