CORAL GABLES, Fla., Nov. 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Tickmark, Inc. (Taxfyle), the leading on-demand tax preparation service, has partnered with Bench Accounting, Inc. (Bench), North America’s largest online bookkeeping service, in order to provide small and mid-sized businesses with the optimal solution to all their tax and accounting needs. The partnership matches small and medium sized business (SMB) owners who have their books prepared by Bench, with certified public accountants (CPAs) and IRS enrolled agents (EAs) for tax planning, preparation and the filing of their business and/or personal tax returns.
“With new tax changes on the horizon; now, more than ever, SMBs stand to benefit from the tax planning and filing expertise that licensed professionals have to offer. Combine this with the tremendous job Bench does of preparing their clients books, and you essentially have a full-service accounting department for a fraction of the cost,” said Richard Lavina, CEO & co-founder of Taxfyle.
Taxfyle provides the simplest and fastest way to engage a licensed professional to prepare individual or business taxes, all while providing customers with an upfront quote, unlike the typical accounting firm or tax preparation office. Taxfyle’s platform is fully secure and enables customers to chat with their assigned professional and exchange documents with them as necessary.
Richard explained, “With the sweeping tax reform that appears to be taking shape in the House and Senate, having wide-ranging implications for both personal and business taxes; having a knowledgeable professional at your side is paramount. They have the knowledge to help put you in the most tax advantaged position possible.”
“There’s no shortage of critical, time-intensive back office tasks for small business owners to complete. But, these tasks aren’t producing income,” says Ian Crosby, Co-founder and CEO of Bench. “We selectively partner with companies like Taxfyle to equip our clients with effortless solutions to these tasks, leveraging our automation to establish a new foundation for small business success and long-term growth.”
Bench clients will be able to receive a single quote for bookkeeping and tax services (business and personal), through a new bundle package. They’ll pay one flat, monthly fee; and their books and tax preparation will be handled seamlessly. Once Bench has completed a client’s tax-ready, year-end financial package, they will be uploaded to their Taxfyle account where one of Taxfyle’s licensed CPAs or EAs will plan for and prepare their return.
