And four reasons why you should too.
Perhaps more surprisingly, according to a Copanion survey of 850 accountants, only 10% had no plans to scan tax documents at all, with the remaining 20% are still just considering it.
Converting paper files to digital workpapers has several benefits, Copanion says, including:
- Elimination of paper filing and storage.
- Facilitates firm-wide access to client documents via network or internet connection during preparation and review.
- Provides an electronic record of documents received from clients—making it easier to identify what is missing and quickly find individual documents to fulfill client requests.
- Reduces the cost of supplies related to copying, such as paper and toner.
