Tax research: stressful or straightforward?

Accountancy Practices, Accounting, Tax July 6, 2018

When you need to look up tax information, what’s your go-to method of tax research? Perhaps you reach for the office core tax annuals and flick through them until you reach the right page? Or maybe you search online, keep numerous tabs open in your Internet browser and save them to your favourites bar in the hope you can find the right information again?

Referring to well-visited webpages and books marked with sticky notes might seem the norm, and might give you reliable answers eventually, but this method doesn’t give you instant access to truly reliable tax information which can easily be stored and retrieved.

An audience poll during our recent tax research webinar shows that, on average, accountants make up to twenty tax research queries every month. This number only increases during busy periods, such as January, when every hour counts and precious time can be saved when using the right tool.

As an accountant, you will always be looking for new ways to save time during tax season. You may think the only way to research complex tax regulations is to trawl the internet or flick through numerous pages of substantial core tax annuals.
