Does it sound magic? Yes, but it is real…
Tax Preparation professionals must comply with the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA). This legislation started on January 1, 2004, and PIPADA applies to Tax Preparation offices that are handling confidential personal and tax information.
Covid-19 has introduced additional challenges as Tax Service Providers try to avoid face to face meetings, manual handouts of such documents and physical drop-off boxes.
Document examples are: Copies of Tax Returns, T183, AuthRep, Consent forms, Signatures and any other document attachment with confidential data,
such as client provided info and receipts of business/rental expenses related to their tax returns.
vtCourier is the latest technological tool that addresses the PIPEDA act. Specifically, vtCourier allows the delivery, receipt and storage of confidential documents by applying military / bank grade encryption of Email messages and attachments.
NOTE: Some competitors are asking you to use third party secure Email software, priced at $300/year and up, depending on volume.
COVID-19 has changed the landscape of the Tax Preparation business
and Tax Preparers need well-thought alternatives to fight the pandemic,
provide fast service to their clients and also Save time and money.
VisualTax has pioneered the evolution of the Tax Preparation business by introducing the ‘Virtual Tax Office’. It is a collection of technological innovations that aim at reducing the need for the physical person-to-person meetings, while maintaining a military grade security and privacy of the tax payer’s tax records and documents.
Note The opening of the VirtualOfficeTower for tax preparers was celebrated on Dec 17, 2020. The opening for Tax Payers will be celebrated at the end of January 2021.
Tax Preparers: Please click the 'Keep me Informed' button below to indicate your interest in reserving your cyber suite in the VirtualOffice tower.
The vtSignature automatically signs all applicable forms of the tax return!
Visualtax did its part to help tax preparers avoid face to face client interviews with a comprehensive set of tools such as:
vt-Cloud is a modern and efficient Internet-based way to serve your tax clients from any place: Your office, your home, your client's place, your hotel, your coffee shop, your vacation spot... It allows mobility and also raises the level of your client service.
The vt-Cloud option is offered in two versions: Standard and Power version. The Standard version is included in the VT-2019 program currently free of charge, and it needs a Windows workstation or laptop computer. The Power version could run on any operating system, including tablets of reasonable size and no program download or installation is required. The Power version needs a paid subscription and a separate program key. It can be ordered now.
Best in Privacy and Security.
Here is some food for thought when you are searching for cloud-based tax returns:
vt-Cloud does not store your tax return data in web servers that we 'as tax software developers' own, and programmatically control and know the encryption algorithms. If we did that, your data privacy and security could be compromised. Instead, your tax returns are stored in public, non-developer-controlled web servers, and you are the only one knowing the passwords to connect to the data servers and your tax return data.
Best in Price...
- The 'Standard vtCloud Version' is free, sorry we cannot go lower than that!
- The 'Power vtCloud version' has zero set-up fees, and a very low yearly cost.
It does not require you to purchase any Virtual Private Server (VPS) to host your programs and data. VPS is actually a remote computer service and it involves high technical setup and ongoing support fees, plus VPS server fees of about $1,000/year or more, plus other charges depending on usage... Furthermore, with VPS you may need to disclose password credentials to your remote employees and also do program downloads as required.
The Power version of the vtCloud bypasses all these costs and inconveniences, and makes you as mobile and productive as you can be, even with a low powered Windows based laptop.
Thanks to our bright, young software engineers, VisualTax has been raised to a enviable new position on the Internet cloud and the marketplace...
Please click the 'Keep me informed' button, if you need to know how to run the Standard version or you would like to order the vtCloud Power version.
