CCH Personal Tax Software Reaches Market-Leading First-Time Success Rate in Online Filing of UK Tax Returns by Accountants in 2012
CCH Personal Tax software used by UK accountants for filing their clients' self assessment tax returns achieved a 99.94% first-time success rate during the April to December period in 2012.
The statistics show that CCH is ahead of the 99.74% first-time success level for people using HMRC's own online service - and ahead of the market average for third-party software providers of 99.09%. CCH is also comfortably ahead of its nearest competitor, which posted a 99.15% first-time success rate.
Simon Crompton, CCH Software's MD, says: "More than one and half million personal tax returns were filed online in 2012. So 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.
"We will be working in very close collaboration with our customers to increase our level of success in search of the first 100% rating."
