Available today, SimpleTax is the only online self-assessment tax filing solution recognized by the HMRC that provides a streamlined alternative to the often inefficient, costly and stressful processes currently in place in the UK. SimpleTax makes it easy for self-employed people filing tax returns to save money and submit their returns online by entering information in just a few clicks.
This is available online at www.GoSimpleTax.com. It is the first of its kind in the UK and similar to the de-facto US tax filing solution TurboTax. The service is completely automated and as the only online service recognized by the HMRC, customers can be sure their information is secure.
This is the evolution of a similar service the team developed in Portugal which experienced notable success, with one-in-five self-employed taxpayers becoming a customer and resulting in average savings of £250 per tax return. “SimpleTax was created with the needs of the 5.4 million self-employed UK taxpayers in mind,” said Celso Pinto, CEO of SimpleTax. “We have been analyzing the UK tax processes over the past year to develop a service that relieves the stress customers experience around tax season, while also saving time and money.
SimpleTax is a culmination of this research and we’re excited to get it in front of taxpayers in time for the January 31st deadline.”
