How much is a tax technical partner worth? 

Our service costs less than £1 per day. We are able to keep the prices down because we sell to a large number of practices and we do this (hands on hearts) to support the little guys.

This website is an information service, not a helpline, I suggest that you post your query to - the Virtual Tax Partner service.
