Haven't started mine yet, but I might apply for an online submission and put it in in the next couple of weeks.

I just use a standard spreadsheet for my working out. :)

I know, ive done it using excel before, but in this day and age, i would have thought a good software alternative would be available.

you can use the one supplied at _http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/home.htm but when i registered this morning is said i would receive my password and username in the mail.... thats Royal Mail not email!! in the next 7 days.

i wanted to get it done, not wait another 7 days. :(

there is some out there, but they all seem American, need a UK one really

Looks like a Day or 2 with Excel then :)
time to add all the receipts up out of this big chuffin tin lol

I use Taxcalc 2005
You have to get it every year, but it's only £19.95, and you can get it by download.
Used it for the last few years and is very easy to use

Thanks, just downloaded it, looks like it should make life a little easier and it's cheaper than the £100 fine I usually pay.:eek: :)

Ive used it every year for last 5 years - I only need the free version, and it tells me I must claim 1 to 2 thou each year, so I do, and the IR pays it straight away.
