    Turning Tax Compliance into a Strategic Strength

    Since cost basis regulations were enacted in 2008, the financial industry has been hastening to implement cost basis reporting technology in order to comply with government requirements. Faced with one of the industry's biggest operational challenges and continued uncertainty around the regulations, financial institutions have been forced to enhance existing systems or select a solution provider without a complete view of the resource and technology commitments that would be required over the long-term. Now, after having spent countless dollars to achieve cost basis reporting compliance, the question at hand is, “what's next”? How can firms minimize costs, while also leveraging their new systems beyond compliance? Let Scivantage Maxit® turn tax compliance into a competitive advantage and strategic strength.
