Accountex 2018: TaxCalc unpacks GDPR toolkit
TaxCalc has kicked off their Accountex campaign by announcing a number of GDPR tools aimed at making compliance simple for its customers.
Launching in June 2018, TaxCalc’s new GDPR Centre will enable practices to perform all the processes required to stay compliant and avoid running into issues with the ICO, the body responsible for GDPR enforcement.
Firms will be able to use the compliance module to carry out annual reviews of internal processes, record the kinds of personal data they hold. Working with the GDPR consent management and contact administration features, firms can use GDPR Centre to:
- Log the appointment, training and actions of the nominated Data Protection Officer
- Carry out annual reviews of internal data processes
- Record what kinds of personal data you hold (and why)
- Track and file Data Subject Access Requests
- Create scenarios to test how the firm will react to a variety of situations
- Register data breaches - and help prevent them happening again
- Record any international data organisations you work with
GDPR in client hub
Client consent and contact administration also feature in the latest release of TaxCalc’s client hub, so firms can manage the lifecycle of clients and comply to GDPR guidelines - from consent management and providing clients with personal data reports to exiting previous clients from the archives.
New integrations with Xero and QuickBooks
In non-GDPR-related news, the Wokingham-based developers also announced that as part of its ongoing integration plan it is creating a series of APIs to connect with third-party software for the seamless transition of data, such as importing trial balances.
The Xero integration already exists, while the QuickBooks integration is due in the coming months, with further integrations in the pipeline.
The announcement comes hot on the heels of TaxCalc’s recent partnership with the TaxAssist partnership, which added a further 208 accountancy franchises to the 8,000 accountancy practices already on TaxCalc’s roster of customers.
