Downloads blocked

Trying to download excel file for income tax purposes so I think it should be secure, but every time the download is blocked and I get a cheery message saying "A virus was trying to get access but don't worry we stopped it." This is the first time I have had a problem downloading this type of file from this website. I do know that this file does contain a number of bespoke macros and I suspect these are what is causing the problem. How do I get past this issue?
