Top 8 reasons to switch to TaxCycle
1. Thoughtfully modern, totally familiar
TaxCycle is made from today’s best technology paired with familiar shortcuts and forms. Keystrokes like F4 for finding forms and F2 for override, and features like natural-language search mean you'll be preparing returns more efficiently from day one.
2. Fully integrated tax suite
Prepare multiple years and types of tax returns, all from a single program. Share data between tax modules, with features like SlipSync for importing slips into T1 returns, and Smart Copy/Paste of business statements or details of associated corporations (coming soon). Import data from GIFI files, Microsoft Excel spreadsheets, DoxCycle and CRA Auto-fill my return (AFR). Use the data in tax returns to better communicate with clients using our detailed built-in template library (like pre-season letters to help with information gathering), one-click email templates and unlimited custom templates in all tax modules using our Template Editor.
3. Optimizations and Quick Fix suggestions
Tax optimizations calculations are no-click—they run automatically in the background while you work to get you the best result for your clients. With the Optimizations worksheet, you can choose how TaxCycle applies optimizations to coupled, dependant and family returns. Bulletins alert you when there is data available for import or when you need to prepare T1 or T2 adjustments (T1-ADJ). Quick Fix suggestions help you quickly address issues in the return.
4. Paperless workflow
With TaxCycle, we focus on workflow automation to reduce the amount of time spent organizing slips, improving your communication with clients and government agencies. This helps you handle heavy workloads in the heat of the season, and gives you tools to easily respond to post-tax season requests. Adding DoxCycle document management software creates your "dream" modern tax office.
5. Client Manager database
Keep all of your client returns in one place, even those prepared in your old tax software. Search, organize, manage, export, mine and report using a modern, fast database. Type to search by name, year, form. Filter by year, file type, workflow status or transmission status. Batch carry forward, print, EFILE, and more. Export results to Excel for further analysis.
6. Support and client feedback
Open six days a week during tax season, our philosophy is "when you call, a person answers". Resolving your problems is our top priority. Our support team and software development team work side-by-side in Canada, so we hear your feedback and can address it promptly.
7. Extensive learning resources
With 100+ videos on our YouTube channel, more than 500 discussions on our tax professional community, hundreds of blog posts, and PDF resources like our User Guide and keyboard shortcuts cheat sheet, you'll find a wealth of resources at your finger tips.
