Version 14 is now available, ready for Tax Year 2014 (July 2013 to June 2014) – Yes we missed out 13… because we created a MAJOR upgrade involving a new database and separate Excel file – this means you will only need to use a new Excel file each year – no need to keep finding your old files, as long as you save in the same place.
Want to know more? If you’re an existing user, refer to your UPGRADE email. If you did not receive the email, we may not have your up to date details, please complete the contact us form to ask for your Upgrade link.
Firstly, load BOTH files to the same folder that you intent to use.
The Rental Workbook is compiled of TWO files that work with one another.
The Excel file is the one that you use, and will need to work in unprotected view and enable macros for according to the screen shots below.
The other document is very important, as it is a database file containing all of your property information.
For backup and safety purposes, we recommend using an online duplicate storage option such as Dropbox, where you can store information both online and on your computer at the same time.
