Cloud based software
Being cloud (internet) based software, Tax Assistant provides access to your records at any time of the day or night from anywhere in the world. We take care of software updates and data backups giving you more time to manage your business. With today’s internet speed and accessibility, cloud based software is the software of the future.
We own and manage state of the art servers located in modern Australian data centres. Data encryption ensures you and your clients' records are stored securely on our servers. Lodgements are secured via AUSkey certificates adding another level of security to the system.
By utilising our 'invite people' feature, you are able to share the access to your records with other people. You can allow accountants to access your records and help you with financial records and preparation of BAS forms. You can setup different access level logins for your employees so multiple people can work on multiple records at one time. If you are a Tax or BAS agent you can access the records of your clients directly from your account and produce reports for your clients.
Lodgement via SBR system
The backbone of Tax Assistant is the Standard Business Reporting (SBR) system. The ATO is replacing the old ELS system with the new and universal SBR system. This allows reporting not just to the ATO, but several other government agencies and provides data pre-filling capabilities making preparation of BAS forms a minute job.
Business Activity Statement, PAYG Payment Summary, Tax File Number Declarations, Taxable Payments Annual report, Company tax return (due by Dec 2013)
By the end of 2014 we will offer in the cloud environment most of the forms and features that are currently available in our desktop Tax preparation, accounting and practice management software, Assistant.
