Taxes are a certainty.
They shouldn’t be a distraction for
your firm or your clients.
Automation. Cost Reduction. Data Control.

The Cost Basis Solution that Meets Three Key Demands
I need a system that will get us compliant today, and will keep us compliant as regulations change.
First and foremost, a cost basis solution must help keep a firm compliant with Cost Basis Reporting regulations. Maxit’s proven solution helps over 75 firms successfully complete tax reporting, on time and accurately. Unbiased Compliance Review with a Big 4 accounting firm ensure Maxit will continue to be compliant, and our deep bench of subject matter experts ensures clients have access to experts when needed.
Lower Cost of Ownership
In today’s demanding world, lower total cost-of-ownership is vital.
Internal systems are costly to build and maintain and divert critical resources from core operations. Vendor systems are less configurable and come with expensive build-outs. Maxit solves both problems. Highly configurable, Maxit allows each firm to implement cost basis in the manner they choose, regardless of back office system or downstream consumption requirements. Maxit’s highly automated solution reduces operational costs. Multiple data delivery options give clients full control over their data and eliminates expensive buildouts.
Greater Value of Investment
I need to be certain we’re maximizing the value of our investment.
Cost basis information has become an essential part of the client experience. If treated as just an expense, Cost Basis Reporting is not giving your firm a strategic advantage. Unlike other systems, Maxit stores data in a fully-processed state, providing a continuous window into portfolio structure, and delivering this data on the fly via web services or Replicated Data Store. And with Maxit’s real-time transaction processing, your clients can better manage taxes, elevating the client experience and creating a strategic advantage for your firm.
