Now Part of CCH’s Comprehensive CorpSystem Suite: Sales Tax SaaS CORE, PLUS and PRO

Riverwoods, IL - 3 November 2011

As CCH continues to expand and enhance its line of indirect tax solutions, customers can now turn to CCH as the only provider of advanced Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions and premier rates and taxability content, with Sales Tax SaaS, formerly known as SpeedTax. CCH, a Wolters Kluwer business is the leading global provider of tax, accounting and audit information, software and services.

The SpeedTax solutions, acquired by CCH in July 2011, will continue to serve customers, simply under new names to better align with other CCH solutions in the corporate tax portfolio.

Introducing CorpSystem Sales Tax SaaS

What was formerly known as SpeedTax CORE, PLUS and PRO will now be known as CCH CorpSystem® Sales Tax SaaS CORE, PLUS and PRO. These are the exact same solutions corporate customers have grown to rely on – newly named to better align with the highly reputable CCH portfolio of corporate tax products, including CorpSystem Sales Tax Office and CorpSystem Sales Tax Rates and Taxability Database.

Furthermore, these renamed solutions are all hosted on a single technology platform – making it even easier for seamless integration and one-stop-shopping for corporate tax and accounting “must-haves.” There’s no need to implement two or more solutions, as is the case with other non-CCH products.

“We are dedicated to delivering value-added solutions for firms of all sizes in the corporate market, and as part of our comprehensive suite of solutions, the SpeedTax products strengthen our ability to deliver on this commitment,” said Scott Gruchot, CCH Vice President & General Manager, Corporate. “In renaming the solutions, we’ve better aligned our strong CorpSystem portfolio of products that are highly recognized throughout the industry.”

CCH’s new, easy-to-use CorpSystem Sales Tax SaaS solutions perform real-time, automated sales tax calculations, integrated with customers’ financial or e-commerce systems. They also provide automatic returns preparation and filing, while enabling reporting, treasury management and audit defense with web-based compliance management and reporting tools.
