Traditional accounting methods , in which documents and information reach the desk of the accountant just a few days before the tax deadline, have proved to be inefficient and slow in today’s business environment.
This workflow also generates virtually insurmountable peaks of workload to the detriment of the clients, who are doomed to wait forever to receive their results and get a clue of how much the tax bill will be.
Not to mentioned the waste of paper, the rush of the last minute and the impossibility to make adjustments to reduce the tax liability
Development of new technologies has completely transformed the way we do business and particularly administration and accounting: IA and business intelligence are making traditional accounting methods obsolete.

- Obtaining precise and updated information.
- Obtaining meaningful advice from your accounting firm.
Efficient way to administer the business.
Business owners and accountants are working together on the same environment. There is no double work , where the first produces documents and reports for the second to type again in his accounting software.
When a new invoice is generated by the business, the accountant can validate it or correct it. When new expenses are included, the accountant can do the same.
The accountant is no longer someone to visit during tax season, but someone who supervises that everything is done correctly.
Adaptation to new requirements of Tax authorities
The Tax Agency is committed to the upgrading and modernization of accounting. It is implementing new systems in which the information is immediately submitted. This is now being required of sizable companies but it will soon be extended to small and medium size businesses.
Obtaining precise and updated information.
With real time access to latest information about their business, decision makers can adapt better to changing circumstances.
Obtaining meaningful advice of your accounting firm.
Collaborative accounting allows the tax adviser to see all relevant information in real time. This enables him to change from a reactive mode to a pro-active one, giving timely advise when needed.
