Article ID: 3274
Last updated: 22 Feb, 2023

Installing the older version of the TaxCalc application (anything before the 2013 tax year):

To do this you will need to:

  1. Log into your account on our Website.
  2. Go to My Account.
  3. Go to My Products and Services.
  4. Go to Previous Years.
  5. Click Download for the relevant years.
  6. Once installed, you will need to ensure that you select the option to licence manually and enter the manual licence key for the applicable year (listed next to the Download button).

Licensing the older version of the TaxCalc application (anything before the 2013 tax year):

Installing and licensing a previous year's version of the program is reasonably simple. After installing TaxCalc, a License TaxCalc box will appear. Please be aware that the 'Automatic' license option no longer works for older years' applications. To license:

  1. Select Next to move on to the next licensing step.
  2. Select the Manual option and click Next.
  3. Enter the manual licence key. You can retrieve this from the website (instructions can be found below).
  4. Click Next and you will be notified of the successful registration of TaxCalc.
  5. Click on Finish to end the licensing process.

You can view your licence key online:

  1. Log in to the TaxCalc website with your username and password.
  2. This will take you to My Products and Services. Click on the option for View your Previous Tax Years' Products.
  3. Here, you can get a copy of your manual licence keys for each of the years applicable.

Accessing tax returns for version of TaxCalc prior to 2013

  1. Once installed, you will need to ensure that you select the option to licence manually and enter the manual licence key for the applicable year (listed next to the Download button).
  2. Once you have licensed the product, you will need to locate the return and double-click on the file so that it opens up in TaxCalc.
  3. (If you do not have these files on your current machine, you will need access to the machine that you prepared the previous year's returns on. You can then locate the files and restore them on your new machine as per the article How do i find a missing file? If you are using a new machine and do not have a back up of those files, we will be unable to help you (as old years of TaxCalc only stored files on your machine).)
  4. Once you have transferred the files onto the machine you are now using Taxcalc on, double-click on the file for it to open in TaxCalc.
