Avalara, a leading name in tax compliance and automation, has released a free whitepaper that discusses how accountant offices can thrive in the current market. This 22-page analysis is divided into four sections:
- How / why accounting firms need to redefine themselves
- How a firm can add value by addressing compliance issues
- How a firm can acquire new clients
- How a firm can transition to take advantage of new opportunities
Even though the main audience for the whitepaper is accountants (specifically, those in public practice, with limited tax compliance experience, but who want to establish or improve compliance services via automation), others can benefit. Learning more about key tax compliance issues and how accounting services are shifting to meet the needs of small and mid-sized businesses can give insight to other entrepreneurs. Likewise, the market forces causing change in the accounting industry will eventually influence other fields.
More directly, an SMB can benefit from business operations software designed to leverage the expertise of tax compliance automation. aACE 5 is a software package that integrates accounting, CRM, and ERP into a customizable, cross-platform solution. aACE benefits not only the controller who is surprised by the AMEX bill every month, but also the CEO who is tired of not knowing what the company’s true cash position is, and the owner who feels like she is steering a ship in the dark.

“One of my personal favorite features is the Data Log. With this feature, our team members can now see a complete account of the history of a transaction as it moves through our system. Not only does this provide us with visibility that we had never had before, but I’m pleased to say we have also greatly benefited from the increased accountability that comes with logging that all of our users have access to. And accountability, for us, has meant more consistent adoption of the processes that are important to the success of our organization.” ~ Andrew J. Porter, ERP Manager, Gable
