Orange Tax Suite

Orange Tax Suite Pro provides a sophisticated tax program that is completely hosted, so you can log in and work wherever you have Internet.  It works with any operating system, and does not require the assistance of a tech department.  Orange Tax Suite Pro gives you the flexibility to grow your firm to any size without complications.  The Beta version will be available by mid-December so you can be ready to roll long before tax season begins.

Who is the best client for Orange Tax Suite Pro? 

"Since our platform is fully online, we target tech-savvy, mobile tax preparers of any size," says Chief Business Development Officer, Gabriel Lau.  "Our ideal customer is someone who wants the freedom to work with clients anywhere at all."

"There are some conveniences that are inherent with online programs," adds Lau. "No need to stop what you are doing to update, or wait to coordinate with an installed program. You log in and you're there. You don't have to make sure you are synchronized. For firms with multiple preparers it's easy to share returns or client information. Networking isn't an issue, since, if you have an Internet connection you can open any client that is available to you... or you can limit access to a client. Our new client portals allow you and clients to interact with each other on a secure Web site that replaces the need for time-consuming face-to-face meetings."
