Engagement letters can be included in the SafeSend Returns delivery encouraging faster turnaround time.
Elevate the Client Experience
Having one solution across the entire tax engagement provides a consistent, familiar experience for your clients. The SafeSend Suite addresses every client touchpoint. When the process your clients experience to e-sign engagement letters has the same look and feel as the digital, fillable organizers they receive, it feels familiar. When they are guided through step-by-step whether it’s a tax return or an extension, it brings a sense of comfort.
Having a tax workflow automation platform that provides branded communication from your firm that’s easily recognizable is way to extend your firm’s relationship with clients while streamlining and simplifying the process for them.
For business returns, the K-1 distribution feature gives clients the ability to electronically and securely distribute K-1s to their list of K-1 recipients. Clients can view and track the status of each K-1, empowering them in the distribution process.
“Using SafeSend Returns was fast and unbelievably easy. I reviewed and signed on my computer; my wife used her phone. It was seamless. The process for my corporate return was also very fast. I was able to download it, save it, and distribute it easily to the people that need to see it.” – Jerry Archer, President, Archer Sign Corp, client of 415 Group
Reduce the Paper Chase with Automated Follow-up
Chasing down unsigned e-file forms and unreturned documents eats up a substantial amount of admin time. Follow-up can quickly become a major pain point, especially when staffing issues arise. The automatic reminders in SafeSend Returns ease the burden of tracking down unsigned e-file forms.
Comprehensive reporting and tracking also help to streamline your firm’s tax workflow. As soon as you send a return, the thorough reporting feature puts information right at your fingertips such as which documents have not yet been opened, or whether a taxpayer has signed but the spouse has not.
“We cut down our chase time by about 30 percent because we had SafeSend Returns helping us.” – Christopher Papin, Papin CPA
The secure K-1 distribution feature puts your client at the helm of distributing K-1s, empowering them and alleviating firm staff from managing this task.
