How do I use the demo database?

The demo database allows you to practise using TaxCalc on a separate standalone database and trial its features without having to enter lots of data.

To use the demo database, follow these steps:

  1. Start up the trial product in TaxCalc.
  2. Click on Notifications in the top right-hand corner.
  3. Click on Show details for Demo Database Available.
  4. Click on Download.
  5. Click on Switch to Demo.

TaxCalc will close and reopen to give you the demo database. This will include all the modules for which you have a (trial) licence.

NOTE: None of the changes you make in the demo database will be saved. If you want to save data or enter real client data, use the main database.
