Atlanta, GA – Leading telecommunications tax and regulatory firms, TaxConnex, The CommLaw Group, and SureTax, announced today that they are joining forces to deliver superior tax and regulatory solutions to the telecommunications industry. The ability to work together creates a best of breed one-stop shop that serves the tax, regulatory and calculation needs of telecommunications and Voice over IP (“VoIP”) service providers.
With the ability to offer this one-stop solution, TaxConnex provides tax consulting and tax compliance expertise, The CommLaw Group and its affiliated consulting firm, The Commpliance Group provide regulatory advice and regulatory compliance services, while SureTaxTM Telecom powered by CCH, provides a software-as-a-service (SaaS) calculation engine for the proper calculation of taxes and fees to be presented on customer invoices and aggregated for monthly reporting.
TaxConnex Partner, Brian Greer, describes the value in a one-stop solution, “Over the years, we have found that tax, regulatory and calculation services are three very distinct disciplines requiring three very different sets of expertise. While accessing all three services from one vendor may be appealing initially, the customer is often getting a watered down version of what they really need. This relationship delivers a superior solution to clients by providing best of breed talent for each unique discipline, but with the convenience of a single point of contact.”
“We believe in providing boutique firm expertise with small firm attention to deliver big firm results” adds Jonathan Marashlian, Managing Partner at The CommLaw Group. “I’m excited about this new offering because it builds on our core philosophy, which is to deliver an unrivaled combination of service and value to firms in search of guidance and thoughtful solutions to the regulatory compliance puzzle during this unprecedented era of technological convergence and legal uncertainty”.
“SureTax delivers the most robust, real-time and accurate tax calculations in the complex world of telecommunications. We understand the nuances of telecom and by using the robust content of CCH we are able to address the specialty rules that apply to emerging areas such as VoIP, Wireless and Digital Goods. By teaming SureTax with TaxConnex and The CommLaw Group we have a robust offering that delivers insightful, expert solutions to telecommunications providers” adds Mike Sanders, President of SureTax.
