This section is accessed from the data input tab within the tax return and allows input of income from a partnership. Add a section for each partnership of which the tax payer is a partner during the tax year.

There are both full and short versions of the partnership form. These roughly correspond to the full and short versions of the partnership statement which forms part of the partnership’s SA800 tax return. Taxfiler will generate either the full form (SA800F) or the short form (SA800S) based on the information you enter in this section.

If the tax return for this partnership has already been completed in Taxfiler for the current tax year then you can link to the partnership return to automatically populate the shares for this partner. See Linking to a Partnership Tax Return for further information.
