Adopt 1040 client-centric habits and workflows

Solutions in Focus: TaxCaddy, 1040SCAN, SPbinder

If your 1040 clients are emailing photographs of their source documents, they’re sending you a signal. The paper organizer is no longer suitable for document gathering. Today, most clients expect the same mobile convenience they receive from other financial service providers. In this accounting webinar, we discuss how Net Promoter Score and Customer Satisfaction surveys ensure happy clients. Improve retention this tax year and well into the future.

According to a recent Salesforce study, 76% of consumers think companies should understand their expectations and needs. But how can you do that if you’re not asking what those needs are and how they think you’re doing in satisfying those needs?

Best practices in crypto tax reporting and 1040 workflow automation

Solutions in Focus: TaxCaddy, 1040SCAN, SPbinder

Virtual currency—that is, crypto tax reporting—continues to be a top enforcement priority for the IRS. The virtual currency question is moving to page 1 of Form 1040 this tax season. An estimated 12 to 21 million taxpayers will need guidance on their crypto activity. Firms that prepare for the cryptocurrency wave will gain the most significant share of these high-value clients. This accounting webinar looks at the challenges crypto tax reporting poses for professionals. You’ll learn best practices as we demo an end-to-end crypto workflow that you can implement today. You don’t need to be a crypto expert to maintain efficiency, minimize risk, and improve the client experience. We’ll even show you how to automate data entry into tax software.

You and your clients can use the system simultaneously to review transactions or discuss year-end planning strategies. You can help them directly on their behalf as a value added service.

Work from home, reduce workload compression, and improve client experiences with a completely digital 1040 workflow

Solutions in Focus: TaxCaddy, 1040SCAN, SPbinder

Streamlined digital processes are more important today than ever before. A tax workflow that allows the entire team to work from home—including administrative staff!—is not just a “nice-to-have.” It’s a requirement in the post-COVID-19 world. In this session, we look at the top three issues firms face in this new environment. David Wyle, SurePrep CEO, discusses how to address them with a completely digital 1040 workflow.

Being able to create remote work situations for professional staff has been an ongoing trend, but it hasn’t been considered essential until now...And most firms hadn’t even considered how to let their admin staff work from home.

Digital transformation reduces friction and delivers a modern 1040 client experience

Solutions in Focus: TaxCaddy, 1040SCAN, SPbinder

Robotic Process Automation, mobile apps, dashboards, and next-generation scan-and-populate technologies are reducing friction and streamlining workflows at unprecedented rates. In this session, you’ll learn how these technologies enable firms to work remotely, receive source documents the day they’re issued, eliminate data entry, increase profitability, and delight 1040 clients.

Going paperless concentrates solely on reducing paper and the benefits that come with that. Digital transformation also reduces paper, but its ultimate goal is rather to reduce friction. It embraces more technologies in order to digitize more processes.

Outsource to grow your firm and reduce tax season workload compression

Solutions in Focus: Outsource, 1040SCAN, 1040SCANverify

New research by the AICPA found that “finding qualified staff” was the No. 1 issue for every firm size category except sole practitioners. If your firm is like most, you struggle with staffing issues and damaged morale during the long, grueling hours of tax season. Thankfully, SurePrep can help.

The number one issue reported by multiple studies is finding qualified staff, and then retaining them. There aren’t enough people coming into the market to compensate for the peak season compression.

Award-winning innovations in 1040 technology

Solutions in Focus: TaxCaddy

CPA firms and clients are both growing tired of the paper organizer, but most online organizers and digital portals aren’t client-friendly. View this recording to learn how today’s proactive firms are using the integrated combination of TaxCaddy and SafeSend Returns to streamline the gathering and delivery of 1040 documents in a format that clients will adopt.

The reason why [other] solutions haven’t caught on is because they’re focused on the needs of the accounting firm, not the taxpayer. In order to solve this problem, the taxpayer needs to see this product as something built for them that actually makes their life easier.

Your 1040 clients want mobile options. Are you delivering?

Solutions in Focus: TaxCaddy

Have you noticed a recent trend of clients emailing photographs of their 1040 source documents? Although it’s inconvenient for you, it’s far easier for them to just snap a quick picture of their documents with their smartphone. After all, their bank most likely gives them the ability to deposit checks by taking a photo with the banks’ mobile app, why doesn’t their CPA? Fortunately, you can ensure high-quality photo-scanning with TaxCaddy’s mobile app,.

TaxCaddy was very easy to use and a great improvement over having to scan documents into a PDF and then upload into a client portal. The ability to take a photo and submit it immediately was especially useful. Saved me a lot of time.

1040 scan (verify) and populate

Solutions in Focus: 1040SCAN

Although the official term is scan-and-populate, a more accurate term would be scan, verify and populate. After all, it’s a best practice to verify the accuracy of OCR’d source document data before it gets exported to tax software. In this session, we discuss several efficient methods to verify OCR data including hiring interns, leveraging your admins, and outsourcing to a third party.

By removing verification from your workload, you can reduce up to 75% of the time spent preparing the return. Once the admin scans and uploads, the preparer just needs to export to the tax software, review the return, and enter non-standard data.
