SimpleTax, a leading UK online tax software provider, releases the availability of the 2013-14 tax year for quick and easy management of income and expenses for tax purposes.

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM – May 14, 2013 – SimpleTax, a leading provider of online tax software in the UK announced today that the new tax year, 2013-2014, is available for self-assessment tax management. SimpleTax is available for all those managing their personal and business finances, deductions and investment dividends as well as those impacted by changes in Child Benefits.

SimpleTax users will be notified of important tax deadlines throughout the year and financial information from previous tax years is imported and readily available as a baseline for the 2013-2014 tax year. The easy to use tax assessment solution allows users to better understand their taxes and discover deductible items applicable to their financial situation, including those specific to freelancers, sole traders and small business owners.

Having launched in January 2013, and fully recognised by HMRC, SimpleTax was used by UK tax payers to save on average £2,000 on their 2011-2012 tax return. Safe, secure and protected by 256-bit secure connections, SimpleTax costs nothing until you’re ready to file and runs completely in the cloud, meaning there is no software to install. SimpleTax uses everyday language and there is no need to decipher complicated tax codes. The math is done for you so whenever you change anything within SimpleTax, the software automatically updates all the calculations, reducing errors.

“The 2013-14 tax year just recently started and SimpleTax is ready for people who want to manage their tax and deductions”, says Celso Pinto, SimpleTax CEO and co-founder. “SimpleTax easily helps you avoid overpaying your taxes while staying on the good side of HMRC. Our goal is to make tax more transparent and easy to understand, helping you get the most out of your bottom line and in a way that costs nothing until you are ready to submit a tax return, unlike using an accountant”.

SimpleTax has also developed an online tax calculator for those that are affected by recent Child Benefit changes. Visit our website to verify if you owe anything at.

“I love the way it’s easier for me to now find out what my tax liability is throughout the year.”
