Tax Department: Workflow & Document Management
One of the most document intensive departments in any company is the tax department, especially if there are numerous entities. There are federal tax returns, state returns, annual reports, city and county filings, correspondence, business licenses and work papers. The effort to keep all of this information organized is significant and crucial to the company. Documents come in from many sources such as government entities, outside tax firms, law firms and other departments within the company. Returns and reports need to be filed on time and the returns and reports need to have well documented working files with supporting information. These are all reasons why the tax department at your company needs a flexible, secure and cloud based document management and workflow solution.
