Although I acknowledge that there may be the odd case where an expert is required to carry out a very clearly defined and tailored Duxbury calculation, in the vast run of cases it is inappropriate to reach beyond the Duxbury tables in At A Glance, or the Capitalise programme for a more advanced formula.

Mr Justice Peel, High Court Judge

Often during a hearing, as issues crystallise, the judge will ask for specific calculations to be carried out; indeed, I did just that in this case. The underlying assumptions can be adjusted on the Capitalise programme if required.

It is excellent. Very clear, user-friendly format

I very much doubt that you will want to return to the old manual calculation methods after trying Capitalise.

Create bespoke Duxbury calculations for your client

  • Carry out conventional calculations (working from an income required to a capital sum) or reverse calculations (working out the income a specific capital sum will provide).
  • There is no limit to how many calculations you can create for each client.
  • Calculations can be for life, or a specified period.
  • Adjust variables such as inflation, income yield and capital growth, Income Tax and allowances, Capital Gains Tax and State Pension.
