After using SimpleTax for the first time, Liam was more than happy to share his SimpleTax story with us. As a web consultant, Liam knows a good website when he sees one, unfortunately that didn’t help him much when he was dealing with the HMRC website.
“My wife and I didn’t know what we were doing, which form to fill in and we didn’t know what the point was. It was really tricky and the main problem was that we actually had no tax to pay. The next year we had to do a paper return, and literally I wanted to cry.”
With less than a month to go to the January 31st tax deadline and a box full of receipts, the thought of using the HMRC website was frightening. HMRC’s service had confused him for the past 2 tax years. So, in an attempt to make tax more bearable and a little less taxing, Liam and his big box of receipts decided to give SimpleTax a try. Firstly, Liam was most surprised at the speed of SimpleTax:
“On a Sunday night I started at 9:30pm, and by 10 o’clock I was finished. It literally took 30 minutes. I had about 11 invoices from throughout the year, I had my P45 from an old job and I probably had between 30 and 60 receipts. The whole thing took less than half an hour.”
So, for the first time ever, Liam was able to file his tax return without the usual hassle, in a matter of minutes. Not only was it super quick, but the intelligent software found him savings that he didn’t even know existed:
“I hadn’t really planned on claiming for electricity and that sort of thing in my house, but SimpleTax talked me through that, and I was able to dig out a few receipts. After all every little bit helps.”
