Historically, — professional tax software was offered at one price during the off-season. A slightly higher price after June. Then between November and February, the price for the software inflates significantly. As a result, tax preparers have to pay full price to use the online tax preparation software needed to file returns.
In an effort to reduce the in-season cost of the software, UltimateTax is changing the cycle, providing a flexible monthly billing cycle.
“We have noticed that almost half of all tax preparers make a purchase after the price increase, regardless of how much notice they receive,” stated company President Mike Steele. “The new monthly billing method allows prepares the flexibility of running their business how they desire and how they see fit.”
The tax software industry will eventually catch on to the growing popularity of the SaaS billing method. The new solution offers more cost effective options when it comes to business tax software that has not been available in the past.
“The reason we can offer lower prices than others is that we have worked to develop strong relationships with our partners,” continued Steele. “That’s one part of it. The other part is that we value each one of our customers and look for ways we can begin and keep these relationships going. A part of this is through the prices we offer. In fact, the price to renew the software is actually less than what we charge new customers. Another great way we keep prices low is by offering great service. We provide many tools for our clients so that they always have solutions.”
