Let’s start with the basics. What does online tax filing for businesses actually do? Essentially, filing online removes the bulk of the manual process that is involved in printing and mailing your year-end forms. It is a similar concept to processing invoices, payments or orders electronically. With digitization, you can free up staff resources AND enjoy faster processing, improved communications, better recordkeeping and greater accuracy. It’s a win-win!
