Global Tax Management Joins Thomson Reuters ONESOURCE Certified Implementer Program as First Firm in Silver TierGlobal Tax Management Joins Thomson Reuters ONESOURCE Certified Implementer Program
WAYNE, Pa. (February 20, 2018) PRNewswire— Global Tax Management (GTM) announced today that it has joined the Thomson Reuters ONESOURCE Certified Implementer Program (CIP) as the first Silver Tier CIP Firm. Thomson Reuters recently applied a tiered structure to CIP to further enable and formalize the growing implementer ecosystem of ONESOURCE, the company’s market-leading corporate tax software platform.
As the largest tax-only services firm in the Mid-Atlantic, GTM has a deep background in tax technology implementation, process automation, and data management. Through CIP, Thomson Reuters will provide GTM with dedicated training, certification and technical support for its ONESOURCE Direct Tax suite, which includes the Income Tax, Tax Provision, DataFlow, and Workflow Manager modules along with other suite applications such as General Ledger Manager, Uncertain Tax Positions, and State Apportionment.
GTM’s ties to the ONESOURCE platform go back to its inception. As an early adopter of the platform, GTM has supported clients with implementations and tax reporting services for more than a decade. In addition, Ryan Lynch, managing director of GTM’s Tax Automation Services practice, started his career as one of the first employees of TaxStream, LLC, whose tax software platform was acquired by Thomson Reuters and became the foundation of the ONESOURCE platform. Ryan’s roles at both TaxStream and then Thomson Reuters included serving as head of customer support and later in the product management area of the business.
“Companies expect great efficiencies from their tax departments, whose calculations are subject to significant complexity and continuous changes, like those resulting from U.S. tax reform,” notes Lynch. “Software automation via the ONESOURCE platform, and a clear strategy around the process, is key to ensuring tax calculations and data are managed accurately, while allowing for quick analysis and adjustments as necessary. GTM is pleased to expand our existing relationship with Thomson Reuters to provide our clients with access to a host of ONESOURCE solutions that directly address specific corporate tax needs.”
The Thomson Reuters ONESOURCE Certified Implementer Program enables CIP Firms to position themselves to satisfy customers’ needs around the implementation of ONESOURCE solutions. CIP Firms provide ONESOURCE customers with comprehensive product knowledge and support from design through deployment, resulting in less time worrying about integration and installation and more time focused on strategic workloads.
