Digital tax workflows will be the norm more than the exception going forward. Businesses that do not capitalize on technology for their accounting risk becoming obsolete for potential clients, particularly those who conduct business primarily in the cloud or in a virtual set-up. Additionally, switching to digital accounting methods not only allows better alignment with clients’ systems, but also improves reliability and accuracy of accounts for businesses themselves.
Here are some challenges that small businesses encounter regularly in a manual tax workflow and which often prove to be difficult to overcome:
How Does Having A Digital Tax Flow Help The Above?

Automated Tax Processes
When applied to tax workflows, a digital tax workflow can help boost profitability greatly.
Here are some ways in which digital tax workflows help businesses:
Tax returns are manpower-intensive processes. When replaced with automated processes, manpower does not get redundant; it gets harnessed optimally, with the added advantage of reliability and accuracy of automation.
Automated processes allow businesses to handle greater workloads without having to deal with the hassle of hiring more people, training them on it, etc. A digital tax workflow thus helps manage higher volumes of tax filings with greater accuracy and time savings.
For CPA firms, this is especially meaningful. Tax time for a CPA firm often translates into a series of events that include calling clients with reminders to submit records, transferring data from paper receipts to electronic forms, reviewing forms to check entries, sending paperwork to clients, filing returns after complete, etc. All of these activities are part of the normal process of filing manually. A digital tax filing, on the other hand, streamlines the process, beginning with accurate records and ending with maintaining digital copies of the clients’ filings.
Supported by the accuracy of digital record-keeping, digital tax workflows minimize the uncertain elements of tax season, replacing them with accuracy and reliability. The result is hassle-free, streamlined tax returns.
