Course Description

Many tax and accounting firms struggle with making the transition to a paperless office – or find that it takes more time than it should. This webinar will explain and demonstrate how successful firms make the paperless transition by following these best practices:
• Scan client source documents into PDF format
• Use Adobe Acrobat and Tic, Tie & Calculate to easily prepare paperless tax & accounting workpapers, the same way you did in the paper world. Tic, Tie & Calculate is the leading Acrobat plug-in designed specifically for the tax and accounting industry and is used by over 15,000 accountants
• We will also discuss the use of automated Scan-and-Organize or Scan-and-Populate Solutions, and how much time they really save your firm
• We will address Acrobat alternatives and other proprietary paperless workpaper preparation tools to ensure participants understand their options and make the best decisions

Learning Objectives

  • Learn how to evaluate paperless workflow, scanning best practices, using Adobe Acrobat versus alternatives and preparing digital workpapers the same way you did in the paper world

  • Understand powerful review tools including: Page sign-offs, review summaries and review indicators
