Friends Prov offers tax tool

Friends Provident is offering IFAs a friendly hand with client tax
self-assessments this year as the deadline for returns draws near.

which offers guidance through the form, along with automatic
completion of complex calculations and electronic filing with the

return to an independent expert before filing with the Inland Revenue
means that you know it is correct and that you have gained the best
tax deal you can.”
