IRIS Business Tax

With IRIS Business Tax you can complete tax returns with ease. Requiring almost no data entry, IRIS Business Tax draws the data from the clients’ accounts in our central database. It prepares the tax computations for limited companies, partnerships and sole traders with ease; wholly and partially disallowed accounts are flagged within the database and automatically treated correctly.   

  • Completes tax returns with ease
  • Draws data from the clients’ accounts in central database
  • Helps reduce amount of time taken up by low value compliance work
  • Unlike more basic tax products, it handles multiple-trades and group relief 
  • Provides comprehensive capital allowances and capital gains calculations


The Challenge

Transferring the critical data from a clients’ final accounts and dealing with all of the add backs, disallowable expenses and capital allowances before you can finalise their tax return, can be both challenging and time consuming. Compliance work is also low value. Clients expect the compliance as standard, there is no added value to this work. It doesn’t matter how complicated the legislation is, clients just expect the work to be accurate and on time.


The Solution

It becomes quick and easy to complete tax returns and computations with this product. There’s almost no data entry required as all data is drawn from the clients’ accounts and addbacks are made automatically. Mapping allows for individual addbacks to be made on a client by client basis or globally across all clients and then remembered year on year.   


Benefits of IRIS Business Tax 

You can complete tax returns with ease, with almost no data entry. Reduces the time spent on compliance work, which is low value. Prepares the tax computations for limited companies, partnerships and sole traders with ease; wholly and partially disallowed accounts are flagged within the database and automatically treated correctly. Rest assured when filing tax returns to HMRC, with a 98% acceptance rate, cutting need for corrections.   


Fully integrated  

Compliance work is easy and efficient thanks to integration with IRIS Accounts Production, IRIS Personal Tax, IRIS Trust Tax and the IRIS Dividend Service. This allows the data to be shared seamlessly removing the need to re-key any data, saving time and reducing the risk of error. 



No time consuming manual tax calculations are required as Business Tax automatically carries out all tax calculations using the data already entered. No manual intervention is required in producing a complaint iXBRL Tax Computation. Gives you fully automated iXBRL tagging for greater productivity and automated apportionment for extended period computations. No separate tools or software are required to handle the split of values between multiple trades as these are all dealt with in Business Tax.
