I am self studying for the payroll management exam and have just completed the first part of the mock exam.
I now need to do the computerised part of the exam and have been advised to download a free trial for this. My syllabus is the 2019/20 one but all the free trial software is for the 2020/21 tax year.
As I am currently furloughed with no idea what the future holds I don't want to pay out for software (which still might not suit my needs) on top of having to pay the exam fee itself.
Does anyone know of an answer to this. At the moment I feel that the money I've spent on the 2 textbooks and the time studying has been totally wasted as I cannot see anyway I can complete the computer software part of the exam which carries 70% of the total marks.
When I first enquired about studying this course I was told all I needed to do was download a free trial of payroll software, sadly this doesn't seem to be the case.
