FilePoint™ is the industry’s leading sales and use tax compliance system. FilePoint’s™ intuitive interface drives the creation of signature-ready forms and provides access to the largest body of electronic uploads in the market for sales and use tax filings. Hundreds of returns are married with powerful data transformations that give users unprecedented flexibility and control over their return preparation process.

FilePoint™ has an intuitive setup for quickly creating users, legal entities, signatures, and returns calendars. After the initial setup is complete, the software’s flexible data import process takes over and produces returns in minutes.

The benefits and key features of FilePoint™ include:

Flexible importation of data:

FilePoint™ recognizes that different users have different data. Accordingly, the system allows for the import of gross, taxable, exempt, and tax amounts. It can use these data elements to “gross up” or “gross down” amounts that need to find their way onto the returns. In addition, it has the ability to perform overrides on the data being imported. This allows users to correct data that may be incomplete, incorrect, or in need of mapping, as it is loaded into the system.

Flexible handling of data:

FilePoint™ does not discriminate on imported data. It can handle amounts that are due on future filings (annual or quarterly returns), as well as amounts that may need to be “held” because, for example, they represent credits without an offsetting liability. If the data has errors, it will still be brought into the system where users can correct those errors, thereby eliminating the need to fix the data outside of the system and re-import it.

FilePoint™ can handle multiple legal entities in a single instance, so it is perfectly suited for companies of all sizes, as well as consulting firms that produce returns for their clients. Contact Second Decimal to learn how FilePoint™ can dramatically improve your tax efficiency and effectiveness.
