CCH Personal Tax Software Reaches Market-Leading First-Time Success Rate in Online Filing of UK Tax Returns by Accountants to HMRC in 2014 Tax Season

January 28, 2015 – CCH-branded Personal Tax software used by UK accountants for filing their clients' self-assessment tax returns* achieved a 99.65% first-time success rate during the April to December period in 2014.

The statistics show that CCH software, produced by global information services group Wolters Kluwer, is ahead of the 98.37% UK market average for third-party software providers (excluding Wolters Kluwer's own figures).

Simon Crompton, MD of the CCH UK software operation says: "More than four and half million personal tax returns were filed online in 2014. This is a huge increase in the number of returns now submitted to HMRC electronically — two years ago the figure was a little over one and a half million.

"With these large numbers, even the slightest variance in the percentage of the first-time success rate can be hugely important and save accountants significant time and money. We are delighted with our latest results."
