TaxPro CT Update Instructions

By | Corporation Tax News, Support | No Comments

After you have downloaded the TaxPro CT update, move it on to your desktop or other appropriate location. Do Not run it directly from the website, as it may be blocked by your security application. Make sure everyone has exited TaxPro CT before proceeding.

  • Double click on the Setup.exe file and click “Next” to move to the next screen.
  • Select the “I accept the agreement” option and then click on “Next”.
  • On the next screen you need to make sure the update is pointing to the correct location. It will automatically pick up the last location that TaxPro CT was opened from. If the location is not correct, click on the “Browse” button and navigate to the TaxproctSQL folder. When you are ready, click “Next”.

Please note that you must highlight the folder above the TaxproctSQL folder. For example, if the location of the TaxproctSQL folder is C:\ITSS\TaxproctSQL, then you should click on the ITSS folder, not the TaxproctSQL folder. If the update file detects that it is not pointing at the correct folder, a notification will be displayed and you will be given the opportunity to choose a different location.

  • Continue to click on next until you are given the option to update. Click on Update and the application will start updating the application.
  • When the update is complete, click on the Finish button to exit the update. The application will now be updated to the latest version.

  • ROS Agent Link can be accessed by clicking on the “ROS agent link”, under Quick Links at the bottom left of the application.
  • The first step is to synch your ROS client list. To do this, click on the “ROS connection/import clients” link, at the top left of the screen.

Once completed you have the following sort options to choose from:

Shows all clients in your TaxPro database for whom you do not have valid registrations on ROS. You can then print off PAYE A1 or Agent link forms for all or specified clients by ticking or unticking the box.

Downloading the new Digital Cert from ROS

By | Corporation Tax News, Support | No Comments

Revenue require you to download the latest Digital Cert file. It is this new file that you need to use to upload Form 11’s to ROS, or import data into TaxPro PT. Please make sure you download the latest cert and copy it into the correct location. Below are instructions on how to do this.

  • Go To and click on the “Manage my Certificates” link.
  • Click on the rounded arrow beneath “Backup”, for the digital cert you’d like to download.
  • Now click on the Backup button, and the new digital cert will begin to download.
  • When your digital cert is finished downloading, find it (most likely in your Downloads folder) and then move it to the appropriate folder. In most cases this is C:\ROS\ROSCerts. Where this is not the case, contact your IT Person or your ROS Certs Administrator to find out where it should go.
  • I’d also suggest you move the old certs to a new location, so they will not appear on TaxPro’s dropdown list when you are choosing your digital cert.
