Report Preview

Report Preview consists of three tabs:

Check Calculation and Return

The Check Calculation and Return tab provides the following information:

  • A list of data entry issues. These issues must be resolved before you will be able to submit the return to HMRC. The blue writing in each issue is a hyperlink which will take you to the page on which the issue may be corrected.
  • A comprehensive calculation of your client’s tax liability for the year.
  • A tax summary, including details of any payments of account.
  • A summary of the entries made in each of the pages in Return Data.
